Which is incidentally the best car I've ever owned, it'll never be sold, instead it sleeps clean and pretty in my hangar, just waiting to add some other unique bmw's to the collection to sit along side it.
Pics of said hanger? That would be awesome to have a hanger full of old bimmers

my M is def my fave, bought two of em.

my 2000 Civic SiR (Canadian) was one of the most fun cars to mod and stuff. really had fun being a r icer.

1997 Honda Prelude was soooo fun but that thing was so heavy that VTEC was all noise, really didn't pull at all lol.

my 1998 Nissan Pathfinder is such a reliable girl. I feel so confident driving her around. She was phenomenal in the winter of 2010 (Dec) when DC became a disaster zone and the federal government shut down lol. She just drove through deep snow while laughing at stuck X5s and Cayennes.

Perhaps you should stop responding. It's a no-win for you here. :dunno:

Me and a friend epoxy coated the whole floor in this hangar so I like to keep my leaky cars in there.. Also the jet rarely moves, makes storage real easy.


The guy two hangars down used to have a bunch of old lotus' and such in his, though the most I've seen was a hangar (60'x60', mine's 50'x50') with at least 10 classic mustangs crammed in a corner.

My Ride: S197, E90, and 1125R
Tie between my 1995 Acura Integra RS and 2000 Ford F150 XLT Supercab.

Not sure why, but both of these vehicles stay in my mind for some reason.

I'd buy one today if it weren't for the extra cost to swap over all my "extras" from the roadster (supercharger, diff swap, suspension, etc).

No work done. It was just better than the BMW dare I say it. Only problems were fwd and no manual. If it had those it would be better. The R is AWD no?

As much as I love my Maserati - I'd have to say my NSX was my favorite - I'll likely own another one some day.

My Ride: e30 M3 / e90 335d
My former 1997 e36 M3 4 door. Alpine white over Black leather with Ground Control Coils. It did everything brilliantly and had 4 doors when needed. BMW really should have made an e46 M3 4 door. The e90 M3 4 door looks good, but the mpg is failville.

Really enticed by the e90 335d....hoping to find one in the next 12 months.

My 1972 BMW Bavaria...

It has so 100x more character than most other modern cars on the road and people young and old take notice of it.

You must feel very proud of yourself to include all of those extra details and how much money you spend in upgrades. On behalf of the forum, we are all thoroughly impressed.

don't shoot me
