that is VERY tempting..... because i would have 1300 dollars to get it to where i want it.
Could be interesting. I like the looks of it minus the fender vents. My friend has a '91 525i that thing is a tank, but he has to floor it to get it to move (its an auto). You would probably hate it worse than the 318 and it might be about as slow.

Then I would guess its a little faster, but its still going to feel like a huge car after driving a 3 series and not have the road feel or handling.

LOL no....every penny of that is already gone. Going to bills and obligations. It just means I don't have to worry about where to park it, paying insurance, or something else breaking.

Franklyn dont buy if its a autotragic, your going to regret it, and if i were you i'd go with a I6 over the V8 less $$$ for maintainence.

plus i'd be worried about who did the work for his "racing cams"

*update* for all those who remotely care, the audi is in its rightful place (scrap yard) and I am heading out to buy a 94 Jetta 2.0 5spd for no more than 800 bucks (Im shooting for 650-700) so wish me luck lol, at least with the jetta my friend has 2 of them and theres 8 in the local scrap yard and parts are cheap. will post pics when i get her. Hopefully going to put it on Rokkor coils and slam it and make it my "low plow" ha ha ha

Its a 535, look at the intake manifold. And it will feel "meh". The old 535s aren't slow, but definitely not quick. I'd be worried about buying a ghetto fabulous car though...

Mein Auto: big turbo hellrot sedan
thats an epic fail....

today while walking with my m54 Jordan 6's (alpine white with the gunnmetal laces)

an old guy in his pair of Miata reeboks was trying to walk faster than me...


it was the new pair of miatas also had gunnmetal laces looked like he got them from ebayshoes....

anyway he flies up on me right on my tail running around the ramp trying to show off his skills....

i quickly down stepped and pulled a bus on him and his reeboks...

later on he asked me what did i have done to my sneakers and i said nothing these are the 318 hairdryer editons

e34's are actually not much heavier than the e36's.. But they certainly don't have the same sporty feel, I 100% agree with you there.
