I towed that Damn 'Yota I had for awhile up my driveway with my bimmer when the ass hat who bought it forgot to set the parking brake on his truck and it got pushed over the bank when we tried rolling the **** onto his trailer.

Edit: not sure why my phone corrected "Yota" to "t_its", but I think I'll leave it cause it makes me giggle.

I like this one more then the red......no offense but people often times hate verts without ever having one. My mom had a 328 vert, and in the summer thing was so much fun . But yes coupes do look a ton better. That car looks super clean. I absolutely love that interior looks like my dad's 5 series burnt orange deal. Classy. Not to mention the mechanical condition of it sounds amazing. I say

Yea well the red one is a sedan which is what I prefer, its not running however. The car has sit for over a year so probably something simple with the fuel delivery since it ran before. This vert is nice but does have some clear peel on the rear bumper and third brake light...could fix that, but mechanicaly is sound. I dont like verts typically but the interior is super clean in this one and is just going to be my daily driver. Don't know...I have this week to think on it b/c the car is 2 hours away.

Away from sad news though....Love the car not a huge fan of chrome on a BMW but hey it might look decent. Too bad we cant see the interior is it all black? And please say it's a manual. Love the shifters in those e30's. bad arse.

I would def. not leave them chrome but would worry about getting running and using as my DD before any mods at all. Will not be able to mod at all untill after the wedding in May. But then a mild drop would happen when suspension was shot and some wheels...that would basically be it.

Wanna lock bro? I'll leave it in 2wd. I promise
One of the guys I work with has a late model RAM 2500 Cummins that he's had some mods done to. Just recently had it on the dyno. Just over 400 RWHP and 1100 ft lbs torque at 3K rpms. Torque reading would have been higher but his torque convertor is slipping under the load. He's going to upgrade and then dyno again.

The 2 that im looking at have the 2.7l and the vert has had alot of maintenance already done....the red one is hit or miss...but for $800 if the bay looks good its wort a shot.
