My first car was a 1972 Chevelle SS, that I totally restored from the ground up!! It had a 350 small block engine & rear posi traction.The engine was mounted the way a performance car's engine should be mounted. Straight forward. Not transverse or front wheel drive, this made my vehicle so much easier to work on!!! Example: yesterday I replaced the water pump, thermostat, thermostat housing, upper & lower radiator hoses, on my 1997 328i, which is set up just like my first car, the 72 Chevelle. This job with the help of http://www.bimmerdiy.com/e36. I had the job done in 2 hours, with parts running me about $ 100.00 from http://www.bimmerzone.com/BMW_Parts.htm & free shipping!!! Try doing this with a Honda, on most transverse or front wheel drive cars you can't even get to the waterpump in 2 hours you have to partially lift the engine out!!! Even a simple job, like replacing the belts is a nightmare!! Look
I'm 44 years old & I' ve owned a lot of different makes & models from crappy American made cars to the Japanese models. The reason why they call the Bimmer, The Ultimate Driving Machine, because it simply is!!! My 1997 328i is the best car I've ever owned period.......:http://www.bimmerwerkz.com/forum/gallery824.html

Your Ride: Dont have a car yet
Nice. I also hate when people post bitching about problems about their car. Every car has problems no matter if its a bimmer or not, no car is perfect. Sometimes people should just park thier car and just look at it, if they don't think to themselves "wow my car is a amazng" then its time for them to sell it.
