That's as early 2000's Aussie as you get.  Just missing the Veilside body kit.

This one looks like a good value little car to me:

Yeah I do like that one.  Though It's a little old and the gray interior is a bit meh.  And I don't think the Mrs wants a Manual.  But nice price.

How do you like your one?  I don't think I got to see it before I left.

 

This 08 one looks good.  Not manual of course though. $1k asking more.

Jesus. 

I love how you get clowns that modify an E87 like this.. then guys like Ray that put S65s in theirs. 

The juxtaposition couldn't be clearer!

I guess it's one factor of the car world that always keeps me amused.

Yeah ours is a good little car.  Had it for 60ks now with very little drama. 

Brisk performance, engine sounds good, trans is good, handling is good.

Suspension is too hard and steering is too heavy.  Seat bases are too narrow and It's a bit small for anything other than basic commuting.

I'd probably prefer something else to daily but @ 82k on the clock now and with no issues it's not worth changing.

my only complaint about the e87 130i is probably the hard suspension (for daily duties around town) and the poor fuel economy.

everything else it is excellent!

They are pretty good value now.  And the Jap imports flooding in seem to be well spec'ed.  Compared to the 3 series that are coming in.  Poverty Pack basic 3 series that looks like they were part of a  rental car fleet.

I will no doubt be commuting from the Waiarapa to Wellington when I come back.  Need something a little fun.  Yay I can't wait to spend half my money on fuel.  Until I can convince the Mrs to move back to the US or somewhere else.

I average 8.7L/100km with the 130, and dont nana it, I thought it was good on gas (for a 3L hot hatch) Stock suspension is definitely crashy on some roads, there are fixes though!

When my wife was driving mine it was on 9.8km/l city driving.  Now that I am driving and stuck in peak it's down to 8km/l.

I reckon 8-12km/l is the range, and I have no issues with consumption.

Driftit you can give mine a blat when you are back.  Also the M5 is a bit noisy now :).

As a daily I'd prefer a 530i.

Nope, 8.7l/100km (or 27mpg) mostly open road is what I do. It sits at like 6l at 100ishkmh.  My 1.6 corolla used more gas :D

Trump will win in 2020, you sure you can handle that?

I'm done with the Government.  I have now seen how they run from the inside.  Never again.

I just want to play with cars and computers with my head buried in the sand like when I was young.

I'm okay with loud M5's.  The way they are meant to be :D

More like the best entertainment America has provided to the rest of the world in a long time. Fun to watch from a distance...
