          It's never "just a car". Man, the last time someone told me the RX-7 was "just a car", he got an earfull.

          BMW M3....not my style, but an OK car nonetheless...

              it's never just a car..

              my car overheard me talking about selling her, and the next day the window regulator went out.. silly me.. must not let the car over hear these types of conversations..

                  M3 .. nice and all ..

                  Pros: Good HP

                  Cons:

                  Body shape / style looks like a midget with a small head

                  Over-priced

                  Engines over-heat easily

                  Just watch your temp. sensor !! I have a close friend whose M3 over-heated and BMW tried to pin it on him (before they had the amber temp. light)

                  Personally, I would have gone with a Miata or an eclipse spyder turbo (convert) =)

                  To each his/her own.

                  Good to hear you're happy!

                    I guess this is kind of on topic:

                    I am heading up to Pocatello Idaho tomorow morning to pick up a 1982 BMW 7 Series. Since I have 2 kids this is the closest I'll get to a sports car but I'm pumped. Plus, more room for tunes and friends right?

                    The car has a bad cylinder but I don't know any mor details. But it should be a fun car on the highway once I get the engine running right.

                    And the best part:

                    THE CAR WAS FREE!!!!!
                    1983 BMW 733i
                    Cyrix 166 32MB with MPXPLAY And no display. Player sits on the back seat with a keypad in front. Someday I'll mount this thing for good...

                        Yeah, I'm currently shopping for a Miata.
                        Actually spent yesterday stripping the MP3 player out of the civic.

                          Its a 97' sedan with 39,000 miles... I took it to vegas this weekend and must say this is sooooooo much more than just a car! All I can say is it will do 0-60 in 5.6 seconds, does a 1/4 mile in 14.4 sec, can carry 4 adults and a trunk full of grocerys and got 27 mpg all the way to vegas.... Much more than just a car! Anyway, if you want to see her, just go here!My new car

                              Well I was just commenting reagadring this line. Its amazing what people need in life to get happy.
                              I personally look at the cars from different point of view... i dont see the point of paying 10000's of $$ for a car when only thing you gona do with it is drive it.
                              Let me give you an example...
                              Thats M3 of yours let say you paid at least US$50,000 and it does it those wonderful things... Which is fair enough... on the other hand many people including me would think otherwise.
                              I paid AU$3500 (US$1700) for the car im driving and i couldnt tell the difference between how you described yours compared to mine.
                              0-100km/H doing at low 6s ( I dont know about the 1/4 mile I guess high 13s), can carry 5 adults including the driver and have a trunk full of grocerys using as much as 8L/100Km in the city and alot less on a freeway... and its as beautiful as any other sport car. And that not even looking at what inside the car itself
                              So it seem like we both driving a car with around a same spec and only thing that is different is the badge and the price !

                              Yeah i know, i know ...its a different class im sure one day i will look at it differently and endup driving something of that class... but im sure its not going to be the greatest day of my life
