Its been a good car and will be for a few more months Im sure, but Im talking to a pal of mine back home and Im gonna buy up another 1989 E30 M3! It was my first car and now will be my Fourth car as well! Ive loved the S40 and its given my very few problems, but I want something a bit more track-able and fun to drive. So if any of you T-5ers wanna go for it... the invitation is open! Here are the pics of (possibly the same car) my soon to be new baby!

Re: (DJ_Run)

Very nice. The S14 is a wonderful motor, but make sure you look after it properly. Regular valve adjustments, oil changes, no cold revs, no start up for 2 minutes, and then shut it off, and keep the throttles sunched for maximum enjoyment. You'll also be needing a special spark plug socket to change the plugs.

Good luck but I must say that car is hideous. I guess I am in the minority but that is one of the ugliest cars I have ever seen in my life.

You probably are in the minority. However, I'm sure Milton, TN has an abundance of BMW connaisseurs.

I don't like it either, and I'm quite sure there is a large contingent of BMW connoisseurs where I live. I am one of them, in fact. I get why the OP likes the car, and I get why Squid doesn't.

My opinion is independent of where I live or what cars people in my community own. You my friend are an ignorant idiot.

Yes, I'm definitely the textbook definition of ignorant. You hit the nail on the head there, pal!

I intended my comment to be purely a jest - I just don't think it's the nicest thing for someone to strongly bash ANYTHING that another is clearly very excited about, that's all...

Cheers.

Actually you are,

ig•no•rant (adj.)
Lacking education or knowledge.
Showing or arising from a lack of education or knowledge
Unaware or uninformed.

I think that making an uninformed, uneducated, and unknowledgeable comment (see above) about where I live and the insinuation that the people in my community are of less class then you or your average BMW owner is ignorant.

Statistically speaking, I probably make more money and have a higher level of post high school education then you. Although I have at least a possible factual basis for my statement, that does not make it true. To say this would be ignorant because for all I know this could be totally inaccurate.

Basically what I am saying is, I am entitled to my own opinion of what I believe is attractive or not and I am allowed to voice that opinion. If you have a problem with this, well then that is on you.

I didn't insinuate anything about my status. Regardless, I'm not going to turn this into anything more than it is - allow me to introduce you to this apparently foreign word:

Main Entry: 1 joke [noun]
Pronunciation: 'jOk

(2) : an instance of jesting : KIDDING <can't take a joke>

However, I'd say it falls more along the lines of this one:

Main Entry: jest [noun]
Pronunciation: 'jest

1 : an utterance (as a jeer or quip) intended to be taken as mockery or humor

Cheers... http://********************/smile/emthup.gif

Squid...I'm sure I currently have a lower level of "post high school education" than you, I'm fairly confident that you make more money than me, and i can still tell you're a jackass. He didn't mean anything by it, calm down bro...have a drink http://********************/smile/emcocktl.gif

P.S. That's a sick bimmer man...very jealous.

seriously, squid has provided nothing buy irrelevant negative comments. Honestly, I wish the kid would just leave or keep his unwanted comments to himself. http://********************/smile/emthdown.gif
