I drive a 92 Honda Accord right now...auto. Its definately not the fastest thing in the world.
I saw a 1992 318i in the paper for $2500. Its a 5spd, black with black leather.
I've done some searches but can't really find much, I want to know how fast these really are. The "0-60" lists sites say 9.7 and 17.4 for the quarter and that seems really slow, does that sound about right for a 5 spd, or an automatic.
I really did not want to get a 4cyl engine, but I would if they are pretty zippy. I've driven my dad's Ford Escape a lot, and while its an suv, the 0-60 is about 8.9 and it is plenty zippy for me.
Drove a SC 300 today also and it seemed pretty slow compared to the escape, I think something could have been wrong with the engine or the 20" rims it had on it were slowing it down a lot, not sure which but those should be faster.
Anyways is there anything I should look for specifically in this car? I'm going to look at it tomorrow and if it seems alright I'll probably get it on the spot, I konw deals like this don't last long.
Thanks for any advice.
