      There is an IX or whatever awd version like 3 miles from my place. Car is damn near mint (test drove it a few months ago) owner is a bimmer guy that knows his isht. but it's high miles (like over 200k) and he wants 5grand for it. Other then that it would be perfect.

      Let me know if you want his contact info anyways.

      What about a W124? You may even be able to find a 400E for that money.

      Ask TCLer bwk about W124 400Es.

      This is his harness:






      Yes, those are pieces of the harness insulation and broken plastic clips on the faded hood of that Tacoma.

      I would go for a V70 or a Maxima.

      The Subaru is a definite NO. Those engines are time bombs and will run you close to a grand for a used engine.

      V70s are solid other than a few electrical gremlins that won't interfere with the drivability.

      The Maxima is a solid car all around. Engine and Trans can be picked up fairly cheap unless it is a stick.

      because my wife wasn't bitching loud enough until 2 months ago.

      that said, I may be getting a free W126... the operative word being "may"

      I've opened dialog with both that E28 and that E34 btw.

      No kidding. And the driver's seat doesn't have a big rip in it.

      Seriously, if I still lived in the northeast, that wagon would be my daily driver weapon of choice.
