Mein Auto: 1999 BMW 540I
BMW E30 Frankenstein for basically a quarter million, WTH? I'll pass on that like a bullet to the head. You can never recoup what you've put into a high performance car, usually not a dollar. I get this is a top notch build, but think about what's available for that coin and maybe come to your senses. I mean you could find a used Mercedes McClaren for that price that would tear it a new hole, or how about a NEW 2014 Lamborghini Gallardo for $182K, with enough left over to buy a newer M5, cash, for the wife? And if you're not opposed to domestic sports cars, the new Corvette C7Z, would make tidy work of it with enough left over to purchase the Alpina 6 series, in cash, that would probably also meet it behind the woodshed, then punish it, if you've read it's specs you know that's possible. That's enough though. I guess if you're an enthusiast that sees some intangible value in this purchase, that would be their reason to buy such an overpriced example of a BMW, that's realistically worth maybe $35K. This type of pricing gives BMW owners a bad rep. I'm just floored that somebody thinks it's worth half that money! One could purchase a NEW IMSA GT Le Mans car for that much cash and beat the daylights out of it on ANY track.
