      It's pretty, but might not be worth it over a Milano, depending on your style. Milano is the same chassis, with the advantage of a Busso V6 and some nicer modern options. Very comparable to an e30....

      EDIT: didn't read the last post, oops. Nice R!

      Nice list of cars. What kind of "lifestyle" are you leading? Those are great cars for driving your friends around in, and have enough trunk space...

      Ok, my car burned in a fire.

      I'm now looking for any rust-free GTI in decent condition. I'm most interested in nice and dry, rust-free car with a nice interior, but I'm open to see what's out...

      Well, after losing my Alfa and MK1 GTI to a fire, the FiST will be my only car for a bit. It's a bit large/unresponsive/isolated/comfortable for my taste, but at least it's useful for moving stuff....

      Definitely true.

      That said, despite the owner's thousands of hours into the car, the car isn't really that special. I know of a clean $8k Milano with 63k miles and rebuilt engine, transaxle, and...

      That car shouldn't really be priced above a clean e30 track car. Do they go for this much? Maybe they do. This thing isn't really even breathed on either.

      Either way, awesome car.

      Bold mustachian sig - I like! And I walk 1 mile to work in Michigan, rain, snow or shine. Too lazy to lock up a bike, and too vain to have helmet hair at work. Of course, I can't speak for a Ram...

      Not what happened in my case. Homeowner covered vehicle fire damages to everything but the vehicles and the auto parts.

      Check your homeowner's policy first. Everything in my garage that wasn't automotive (cars and parts) was covered. The structure, the tools, the bikes, etc. - all covered.

      Yeah, I just ran into a similar issue.

      I had my cars in "storage" on my insurance policy, but like an idiot, didn't read into what that meant. It was just an 80% discount on my coverage for that...

      Just some ideas:

      -valve timing is almost certainly different between the two, and has a significant effect (at least from what I've seen using Ricardo Wave 1-D simulator)

      The garage and house damage are covered, my brother's cars are probably covered, but my cars didn't have comprehensive, so nothing there. My Fiesta ST was also in the driveway and the bumper and...

      I really appreciate the kindness, but this guy is spot on. Make sure you have an appropriate fire extinguisher with you when working fuel/ignition. Hopefully, you already do.

      Thanks!

      I've owned a 325is, 2.3-16, and 318is, and the 3.0L Verde spanks them all on fun. And the GTI improves on that :)

      Just an e30 cluster in the photo and an e30 325e listed in his sig. Or do you think it was his Mazda6 and perhaps he walked the note to his BMW to impress us?

      I'm 25, have my house paid off, I walk to work, and really do value the feel of a car over its capabilities. More than that, I like a car that I can drive anywhere with zero guilt and not too much...
