Actually I had considered the twin turbo model, due to the advanced tech, the same thing that drew me to the mitso, but Id imagine that in the mitso at least its fairly low grade stuff and Id constantly be working on it...I like the 300zxTT but its unlikely I could easily find one for that price Id imagine, and it would probably need a bit more maintenence, I dont know much about the reliability of them, but a nice light car with three hundred horses is a nice thing without a doubt. I was really going for the two forty for a while, and gone off wild in my mind about who Id put on an IAP turbo kit, making over two hundred to the wheels, put on coilovers, redo interior with racing seats, suede headliner, a million other dreamland things, but I realized that would never happen, Im not going to put that much money into the car, assuming I had the skill to even complete the installation tasks without paying double my base costs in additional labor. So I kinda came to the conclusion that Id like to find a car with a nice interior thats comfortable and luxurious but still have the nimble handling, rwd, and power, that I would try to get out of any car, but if I could get it stock, Id pay much less, and save so much hassle. Coupe, sedan, Im not really concerned with that much, I could live with either one really. My primary concern with the e36 or bmws in general for that matter is reliability. I dont know much about them but I hear all sorts of tales about bmws falling apart. What do you think of the e34 540i? I know its a good bit heavier, but it does have the 282hp engine and a more comfortable interior, but Im not sure how it would really perform against the e36 in a real situation. Being lighter and more nimble even with a smaller engine may make all the difference in the world in that situation, but I have the nagging feeling that Id be pouring in thousands to bring my 189hp engine to even close to 282hp...I notice there are a LOT more e36's around...is it a more modern version of car mechanically than the e34? Any advantages?
