As an xi owner in particular, I would like to see LSDs. Of all the cars, the xis need it most.

I almost couldn't believe that 75% wanted an LSD and how almost nobody wanted anything else!

Then I looked at how many voted so far...

duh. :confused:

Well, I voted for LSD but this really isn't a fair poll, since technically, ALL of these things are available on E46s... if you get a M3....

LSD... check
Different colors/trim... check
More power... check
6sp AND SMG... check
Suspension change... check

Do you have to be a prick? You know I meant non-M, since this is the regular 3er forum :flipoff:

The M3 is not an option for those of us who insist on useful vehicles.:rolleyes:

Bring on the M3 Touring!

Why do you need AWD in Maryland? Do you live on an unplowed dirt road? :dunno:

(aren't you a little young to be driving a wagon anyway? :p)

Well, I thought I'd try AWD in a Bimmer. Truth is, I'm ambivalent. Next time around, I really don't knwo what I'd get. (Well, actually, if I get an S4 Avant...)

As far as age goes, the Touring is perfect. Cops don't pay any attention to me. :) I got followed all the time in my 325i SEDAN, so clearly something is helping here. Second, I do a number of things that ONLY work with a Touring. Like haul heavy things around. :p My projector, for example, which BARELY fit into my car. I also hate coupe doors. Damned inconvenient.

As Mike would say...............the wagon adds 10 years to your age:rolleyes:

I question myself some times about the AWD:confused: But since it will eventually become my wifes full time car, I'd rather do a little over kill for those few times we need it:)

You have a 325 sedan too! :yikes: I did not know this....

I don't think that I would want a wagon or AWD at our age. Project? I'm guessing architecure :dunno:

I had a 325i sedan. An E36. :) Sadly, it's no longer mine. :cry:

And not architecture. :p These days, these thigns generally revolve around my home theatre. :p
