A a good condition BMW 2002 is dirt slow compared to your "almighty" mid-level v8 and still worth more than most e39s.

Maybe expand into other "enthusiast cars" especially older ones that are "vintage" where people actually truly worked on/modified/updated the cars. Heck, most of the BMW owners with 20+ year old cars will put most e39ers to shame.

P.S. Some of us with "mediocre" e39s have "medicore" e39s for "medicore" driving since we have other cars that are "enthusiast cars."
Thank you sir! You are right on the money.
Passion for automobiles is what motivates me. My first experience with BMW was a ride in a '67 1602 38 years ago.

On a sunny summer Saturday afternoon, I'll take the Fiat out for a four hour backroads cruise with the top down while the German cars sit at home! If I had a Packard, I'd be driving that as well.

Go to a vintage event, you will see passionate people everywhere you look. If you have neven been to the Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix, you should, at least once in your lifetime. You will remember the event forever!
