Scott, I think you've known me for years in R.A.D (this crossposted to
alt.autos.bmw, too), so you should know better than to ask - at least
of me. This is my *fourth* E28, and the newest one yet (an '88 ...
and they didn't build 'em later than that). I can't see me loving any
other car as much as I do the E28 535is. Even after driving my wife's
'02 Jag X-Type 3.0 Sport 5-speed (a *really* fun car in itself!), when
I climb back into my BMW, I am 'at home'. So, there won't be a 'new
one' in my foreseeable future unless it's another E28.
As you can see by what she drives, my wife would be the last one
forcing me into a Toyota *again*. We drove them for the 14 years we
needed dead reliable economical transportation and now - well, life's
too short to drive boring cars. My last Toyota was an FX-16 - a
pocket rocket disguised as a little black 3-door Japanese snotbox.
Finally, we won't be having "another kid". And my 10-y-o daughter
loves the old BMW because she gets to sit in the front. No air bags.
That cover it for ya?
Been there; done that
....Bridgestone Potenza G009! Man, the car drives like a dream.
I paid about $488 at Big 10, and this included a 4-wheel alignment;
also lifetime balancing. I also get a $50 rebate from Bridgestone.
Hey guys, thanks for the input...to the trolls: dudes, how 'bout getting
Cool. Glad to hear you found a satisfactory product.
I forgot to mention that I have Yoko AVS ES100s on the Porsche and are
happy with them (except in the snow, when I have to switch to winter
tires,) but I guess it's a little late now...
