      Yep. 1.8t for 2.slow money. In the end, its a package we like, gets good fuel economy, and has useable power in the rpm range we find ourselves in most often.

      I'm somewhat in the same situation as you. With that said, pending inspection of both, I'd buy that bmw assuming everything checked out. It actually looks pretty much exactly as I'd like it.

      Definitely good points. Thanks.

      I drove 2 335i's for the hell of it. For the driving I did during the tests and do on a daily basis they didn't really feel different than the 328i I drove a few...

      That's why I asked for enlightenment on the subject. I wasn't sure if it was all of them, or some of them. I figured coming here with a diverse community of car owners and enthusiasts would be better...

      Sport package in the BMW seems like a must for me. I didn't mind the non sport seats, but I think I'd be tons happier in the sport seats. Did your car have navigation? I was considering getting a nav...

      Looking to add a daily to the stable. The Bronco is going back to it's owner, the wife's Silverado now has 220k on it and is more suited for home depot runs and what not. This leaves me looking for a...

      I don't know if you've tried, but I sold off a 92 Jetta to Ecology once for 300 bucks. And they came to tow it away.

      Very true. Towed a 96 Jetta on a dolly behind an 03 Ranger with the 3.0l and automatic. It did it, but it wasn't happy to do it. I was afraid to go over 30 mph because the truck didn't feel stable...
