...Right then! Ive never heard of a Torino falling apart. Hmmmm...sounds a bit suspicious to me! Plus if all he owns is Corvettes, he mightve been saying that just be a Chevyheaded LOOOSER

Hmmm.

A bunch of responses. I was going to suggest 928S4 ('87-up), vs the '85-86 928S (btw, the 32valve V8 didnt' arrive until 1985, not 1984). The S4 is more aerodynamic and has better brakes and suspension, along with a slight retune of the V8 engine. Good for 175+ mph in stock form, and nearly bulletproof. Vastly faster and quicker AND nimbler than the 8 series (which was avaialble with a V12 throughout it's run. You just have to look for an 850 instead of an 840). But I keep eying the 928s myself (as the '85-88 years can be had around $10k or less in nice shape) and don't want to suggest something I'm already wanting.

The 8 series will not be as rewarding to drive as the M3. No, the M3 doesn't have a V8 (though for your cash, you could build a nice LS1 powered 3 series coupe that looks teh same but goes VARY fast), but the M3 is much more of a driver's car. the 8 series was for profiling on the boulevard and showing up in front of fancy restaurants...

I have to comment on the Torino thing. My first musclecar was a '71 Torino GT w/429. Excellent car and a lot of fun, even though it was pretty big for it's time (though, at 3700 lbs, it's not really any heavier than the new Mitsubishi Eclipse). I've had good luck with all my Fords over the years, from teh Torino, to my first Comet, to my Pinto race car, to my '70 Mustangs, to my Ranger to my SVT Contour.

Well..yes it does Im leaning towards the 8 series because I LOVE the styling of those cars.

I would like to NOT blend German and American I just dont see it working. Well now Im stuck again. You make the 928S sound even BETTER than I already know it to be! Even if the 8 series is a bit of a "show offs" car, I still love it!

Ok guys...I think Ive made up my mind...

Im first going to look in to a nice BMW 8 series, but before I run out and buy it, Im going to look at a 928S. Then decide which one I like more (Im really challenging myself) Thanks for ALL your opinions! They are very much appreciated!!!

If you go looking at 928s, remember, '78-84 were SOHC engines (and only 4.7 liters for the most part). The 85-86 928 S was a DOHC 5 liter, but the body was basically the same as the earlier cars. The '87-up 928S4 was also a DOHC 5 liter, with more hp, and more rounded nose and tail. They basically stayed the same up to the 928 GT and 928GTS which were the last of the 928s. Flared fenders, more power, etc, but vastly mroe money right now...

early (S1) 928:



928S (S2 and S3 looked the same. S3s had the DOHC engine)



928 S4



928 GT:

I would try and find an integra or prelude and then have plenty of money left to modify.

I would rather have a BMW or Porsche by far. Hondas just dont compare. Plus, Ive already got one "tuner" project going on, my Saturn SL2.

what about a porsche 944 turbo? as far as i know they can top 160mph stock and look better than the 928 in my opinion. or even an older 911 turbo. they'll do 155mph pretty easy which isn't as fast as the 928, but still pretty dang fast, and they can be awsome when modified.
