My Ride: E46 328i / 330ci
The blanket 8 cylinder or more / FI restrictions in QLD are a bit of a shame tbh. I was not allowed to drive my grandfather's E34 530i because it was a dangerous high performance vehicle what with its slushbox, 1.8 tonnes and walnut dash, yet my E30 318i with its bull in a china shop wet weather handling is considered safe.

I'd rather see P platers in their parents' Merc E/S or BMW 5/7 with traction control and driver aids than in a clapped out E30 with an open diff and bald tyres.

Further to that, I'm under no illusions that I'm a great driver, which is why the world is better off with me in my E46, with good brakes, neutral handling, and the DSC firmly in the on position.
