Been lurking a while and finally decided to make my first post ( I will also be posting this in the E36 forum just to balance out the opinions
Long story short: I purchased a mint E36 328iS in August and began to happily and tastefully mod it to my liking - just to be completely screwed over by a drunk driver on the freeway in December. I ended up sliding across 5 lanes and rolling twice on a crowded freeway and somehow I walked away with nothing more than a bruise from the seat belt. As cliche as it sounds, thank God for German engineering right?
So arrives my crisis. My check for the car will arrive within the next few days - and so the search begins. Currently I've narrowed down my wish list of sorts to a few options, and I would like your input or any advice you have to offer.
I'm torn between an E36 M3 or an E46 330ci ZHP (I'd consider the 330i ZHP if the cards were right though).
Whatever I choose will be manual - there's no way I'd get an automatic.
