Dang, you sure are pretty gutsy hauling things like that around in your wagon.

With my kind of luck, I'd be driving along and would have to swerve quickly to avoid getting tagged by that infamous Sebring or Corolla. Then the wheel barrow would tip and its metal leg would smash my windows ....

That picture makes me miss the versatility of the hatch on my ti. It sure was nice to be able to fold down the rear seat and haul something back there when the need arose.

I was looking at one of those as a second car. I think just the cachet of being a BMW has kept it's value quite high. I can't seem to find one for less money than a new Civic, let alone one with the sport package.

I've got plenty of room in my coupe

I have only wished for more room once, when I bought a new TV. Even a small 20" flatscreen had to be taken out of the box and put in the back seat. It put indentations in the leather

If I need to haul a wheelbarrow, I'll call someone who has a large car.

Don't hit the brakes too hard or that pitchfork might just come sailing up and through your head

Look for a 99 if you can find one. They all came with the sport package and the ///M areo body work. They were pretty rare though, mine was one of only 600 or so (I think) sold in the US that year. That one's taken though, someone at my office bought it after it was CPO'd.

I drove very cautiously so not to have any problems.

My wife was VERY VERY surprised that I loaded the wagon up. It was a tactic to show her how practical of a car it would be for her to drive
