Hey, I'm a noob, be nice.

I've been looking into bimmers a lot lately and I am mainly looking at a 1991 318IS for the better handling because of the smaller engine, but I was thinking there would be a major lack of power there. Is there a good choice around the same style. I don't know too much of the 325, I've read the different types, but which do you prefer? After looking into the 318IS I've found out a lot of things that were inticing. I was looking through a different forum and a guy said that it's possible to pull 1g on a skidpad with around $1000 is suspension mods. Is this true, if so, that's right up there with a Ferrari Enzo(1.05g) and that alone is enough to make me want one badly. I'd like to know that I'd be able to out-perform the guys in all their Japanese ricers, haha. I'm getting my license soon and I'm gonna be driving a Taurus for the summer to fix up and sell, I can sell it for around $3400 and the local average value for a bimmer is around $2800 so I should have it by the end of the summer and it has me drooling. I have a feeling that switching from a Ford to a BMW is gonna be the biggest and best change I've ever had.

Ford to BMW..... not a bad change. I went from Geo to BMW. Everything was bigger and better, it was like moving up in the world.

dont do it... it'll ruin you for life lol..

you'll never be able to own another non-bmw again

okay, maybe that isnt such a bad thing.

just dont kill yourself in the car kid. its a sad day to see a bmw get hurt. just because you have a capable car doesnt make a first time driver superman.
