Winter Driving???

Hello All,
I am considering a Z model as my daily driver to replace my trusty 318ti. The only thing that concerns me about the car is its ability in winter weather. I live in Northern Colorado...

Quickness is really not what I am after. I want something that is going to be comfortable at 90 mph on the open road. My 318 is sporty around town, but at 85 mph it is turning around 4,200 rpm and...

Thanks to everyone. My 318 has been a joy to own as well, but at 80 mph it seems to be working a little too hard to for its own good. The idea of having a little more power and comfort seems like a...

Hi All,
I currently own a 95' 318ti, which has been a great little car, but I would like something a little more highway friendly. My commute is about 120 miles per day (all interstate), so a...

T,
My daily driver is a 40 Mecedes, so I think both will seem like a modern cars to me. The E34 is appealing because it still has classic styling, but with modern performance. I do need...

Is it a good gamble or folly?
