My Ride: 2003 BMW 330Ci
Getting bored of my 330 coupe :/
So.. it's up for sale.. testing waters at 13k right now. I should have it paid off in May, but I just threw it up for sale to find potential buyers.
It's fully loaded with the sports, premium, and winter packages.
5 speed manual tranny.
Now, I've driven fast sports cars before (mostly imports), drifted, and everything else..
I bought a BMW mostly for the hell of it, to see how I'd like it.. and I do like it!
The thing is, I don't know if I can have fun as much fun with it as I want to, at least without something going wrong.
It's little heavy, which isn't my primary concern, but still..
I feel guilty if I push it (redline) it, because I can't see it as a sports car or anything like that, even though it is quick.
I don't know how much "push" the motor can handle..
I know if something breaks, repairs will be expensive..
Is it okay for me to keep pushing the car a little? It's my daily.
It's not like I'm abusing the car, but I do like to push it and go fast from time to time.
Again, It's not an asshole driver or a bad driver, I just like to have some fun times and do some quick pulls to redline from time to time - I just feel guilty.
I will be selling the car soon (before summer) and will be looking into something else.
If I buy something on more of the cheaper side (i.e. 240), I'd be willing to drop money on the motor.
Here are a few of my options..
370z (if I'll have the money)
335i coupe (if it can handle some spirited street driving)
240sx (450whp potential)
I don't want to go American, and I want to stay away from German cars if I can't have fun with them like I can with a Nissan.
I don't wait any Hondas either..
My IDEAL price range is 5-20k.
I'm just trying to find a RWD car that I could have some fun with and that won't need 5k worth of repairs right after I buy it.
I'm not on the track, just the streets.
Any suggestions would be helpful
