And the Aurora may get 25 on the road on cruise control but certainly not in town.
What mileage did you get from the Geo when you had it?
no, i dont drive like that all the time. just weekends usualy. i think my carb is fucked up or something. no idea what my geo got, never took the time to figure it up. it did pretty darn good tho. driving it was just about as fun as playing with a sack of potatos.
as for the e30, i have been looking for one ever since i got my licens. but they are nearly impossable to find in western kansas. the only bmws i have EVER seen here is ones that are just passing through town. the closest BMW iv seen for sale is in whitchita, and all e46s. and considering my parents arnt willing to travel, its probably not going to happen.
i might not be selling it anyway. all of its "old age" symptoms mysteriously cleard up today. drives like a dream. cause the reason i wanted to get rid of it was my brakes didnt work(at all) and had to rely on downshifting and shutting it off to slowdonw/stop. rear end shook when accelorating, and the highway problem came back. beat on it a little today, and it all cleard up. pretty strange. see what happens tomarrow.
