Rotary all the way. If you have 20k then go for an RX-8 or save your money and look for an FC or FD to fix up.

Don't listen to the domestic call. Follow the light given off by DTM.

"Buy a bimmer" the angels sing hauntingly as you appraoch the light. You feel warm, comfortable, like you've been here before. "Buy a Bimmer" You smell something familiar; Is that moms cookies? "buy a bimmer" You approach the light even closer. You're getting excited now, you don't know why but you can't help smiling. "buy a Bimmer" You look into the light, unberably happy now, and you see:

Or (for mathew), you see this:

I don't see whats so great about the 8-series, i've never driven one, but I've been in one, while it was being driven. Wouldn't just be better to get an M3 or M5 with just as much performance, but way more comfort, visibility, and money left over?

To me the 8 series just seems like a regular BMW in a wannabe exotic body.

Does a M3 or M5 have a V8 or a V12? Nope I think the 8 series looks much better than a M3 or M5. They have that awesome blend of Euro and Japanese tuner look to them.

The M5 has a V8 does it not? And the M3 doesn't need one, it's I6 is good enough. I just don't see the point of the 8 series, does it really perform that much better? The only reason I would see to get one is the "rarity factor".

I have always loved them. I don't know why. They look so pretty

Other than that, they have almost the same V-12 that was in the mcLaren F1

Unfortunatly, I've never seen scarface . I've never had the time to watch it. I hardly ever watch movies anyway. But in Cannonball Run 2 a 928 gets run over in the beginning of the race
