Post subject: howdy yall

Hi I'm Brandon,
my first rwd car was a gutted e30 with an m3 steering wheel an bilsteins, I stupidly sold it didn't know what I had, drove an autofail e36 around for a bit hit a truck. I then moved to Mazda Rx7s went through about ten FC before learning the chassis, after the FC it was the na and nb miatas, I'm at about eight on the current Miata. I had a friend trade me a 1976 2002 for partial payment on an nb Miata. Now I'm stuck with this old BMW that will poop on a Miata in straight line. Would an e30 be a better all around car? Or is the 2002 worth keeping? Keep in mind I have to drive to Tortilla Flat everyday for work.

WeebleWobble out.

Hi Brandon

I envy your commute, but not sure what to tell you about your car. My opinion is that the E30 is the all-around better car, or at least has more potential, but I've had neither so I don't know if you should listen to me lol

I love the chili, the commute is why I took the job, all the e30s I've driven have been amazing the 2002 feels kinda numb. Too much play for my taste..

The 2002 probably needs a bunch of work.

if the 02 feels numb, its the owners fault not the car. I bet the bushings havent been touched in a while and the steering box probably needs to be adjusted.

That.

Of course, they're just horrible cars anyway and everyone who owns one and loves it is just in denial. Laughing

I've owned three 2002s and one E30, and as cool as '02s are, an E30 is a far superior daily driver. No question.

You need to sell it and buy a Bavaria.

Kidding... Not really.

Welcome! This is a known hangout for lurking bimmerphiles and one of these poor depraived souls will probably take the car off your hands. I know I wish I could!

I never started. I'll challenge you to name one place closer to civilization that has better chili.
