Heres the deal. Im 17. Right now I have a 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee lifted 4" with 33" tires. This year im going to be going to college (sommunity, Sierra College). Its about a 15 mile drive from my house. I dont really want to be driving the jeep there every day. I also offroad my jeep, and I have finally come to realize that even though it performs well offroad, the parts are to expensive to break as often as they can offroad. Also, when on road, I just drive it WAY too hard. I drive it like a sportscar. Sliding it, etc. In fact, one time a friend was behind me going around a corner and said one of my rear tires came off the ground heh, not good. Also, since I was like 14 I've had a love for the M3s. I really want to do this, but getting my parents on my side is another thing...I am going to try to make a good case with them, and be very reasonable about it. Thats why im looking into reliability, i still need to find crash test ratings on the late-90's M3s, and the fuel mileage is much better. The cost of the vehicle cant much top about 13K. If you guys are thinking im dreaming trying to get a 199* M3 w/ 40-100k miles for that price, please tell me.
Thank you so much for your help, AP.
