Nice looking wagon!

My 330ci is Japan rot. You don't see a lot of that color around. Congrats on the purchase. Enjoy! And keep us updated.

Civic Si is a good car, and does indeed have the LSD. But the RSX has a liftback, way more cargo room, and IMO has a far better cockpit. The whole dash layout of the Si is something I couldn't live...

IMO, that's no better than the M3. The 335i is just as powerful, just as easy to get into trouble with, and doesn't handle quite as well. It's more complex to work on as well.

This is why I recommended autoX events. You definitely have that stuff around you. And, believe me, it will be quite satisfying to beat your friends in a slower car.
