Re: Driving Experience Question: E46 M3 vs .... E30 325

If it was just slow it would be forgivable, but it's also unreliable and a flawed design from the factory. It gains nothing over the S50/52 and gives up a lot.

If I could do it again/what I will...

Re: Porsche 992 Spotted Uncovered

I like it. It’s not as pretty as a 991.2 but I’d say it’s better than a 991.1.

But then I like 996’s so what do I know.

Re: New Crotchphones announced. What you getting? (56k hogger warning)

The question is how much better can phones get? The feature set on my ancient 6 is all I really need. I just need faster hardware at this point.

Re: New Crothphones announced. What you getting? (56k hogger warning)

Between the XS and XS max, 256gb should be adequate.

Need to get my hands on the 6.5 screen to decide. If I can’t use it one handed it may be a nonstarter.

Re: Driving Experience Question: E46 M3 vs .... E30 325

E30's are great cars, more fun to drive than E46's in their own way. The market on them has completely jumped the shark though.

And anyone who says the M42 is anything other than a complete piece...

They catch a ton of flak from "purists", but I also enjoyed the **** out of them. They're a different beast to the books Frank wrote but they're great in their own way.

I'll take pinning a crank hub and walnut blasting the valves every few years to the myriad of issues the E46 (and most other performance cars) end up with.

Cue more cries about not getting the RS6 when we already have access to the better vehicle.

Re: Doug DeMuro: Here’s Why BMW M Cars Will Shoot Up in Value

The people paying this kind of money couldn’t give less of a shit about the way the car drives. It’s an investment like gold, fine art, or commodities. Just a way to park cash and grow a return.
