Default Thinking about a BWM 328is I just found

I have been thinking about getting another car for a while. One choice I have been looking at is the 328 seris BMW. I just founs a 1996 BMW 238is, Black, 2 door, Manual (no auto for me ),77,000 miles and asking only $11,900 for it.

Other options listed:
Quote:
Air Conditioning, AM/FM Stereo, Security System, Alloy Wheels, Bucket Seats, Cruise Control, Fog/Driving Lamps, Intermittent Wipers, Manual Transmission, Passenger Air Bag, Power Brakes, Power Drivers Seat, Power Locks, Power Mirrors, Power Passenger Seat, Power Steering, Power Sunroof, Power Windows, Rear Defrost, Sunroof, Tilt Steering
Here is a pic of that model (not the exact one at the dealer).


So what do you think???

I'd say if you're looking for a sportier 2nd car, hold out for an M3 of that vintage.

Does it have an LSD? My friend has an older 3 series and that is one fun car to goof around in. Drifting, donuts, oh yeah...

While the 328is isn't as fast in a straight line as an SSEi (it'* still no slouch), that'* not the point of the 3 series, where you'll be scraping door handles in a Bonneville, you'll be going weeeeeeeeeeeee in a 328

I won't be getting one now due to financing options...(maybe in the spring still).


The reason I would get a 3 series is for the fun to drive and elegant appeal of it. I wouldn't mod it much. I just think it would be nice to have a car in it'* class to drive every now and then. I would keep the Bonneville too!
