Depends on what YEAR 325i, 86Flame...I can get you 0-60 and 1/4 mi stats for 89-90, 92-95, & 2001 models. But I´m not searching for ALL those model years for the rest of the info
I´ll give ya the acceleration numbers for all those years. Here goes..

1989:
0-60: 7.5
1/4: 15.5

1990:
0-60: 7.8
1/4: 16.5

1992:
0-60: 7.8
1/4: 15.8

1993: (2nd Gen EGTs are dead even with this year.)
0-60: 8.4
1/4: 16.5

1994:
0-60: 7.4
1/4: 15.5

1995:
0-60: 7.7
1/4: 16.0

2001:
0-60: 7.0
1/4: 15.4

Trust the Numbers...don´t get a 93 model year, get a 2001 model year. if you´re looking for the speed.

Unless you are ready to spend BIG bucks on every little miniscule repair, I would steer clear of a BMW. Unless you could get a newer one, as they have proven to be extremely reliable. Any time you buy an older car you may as well plan on several repairs in the near future.

Well, 2Fords, thats basically the same thing my parents told me when I bought my Escort...go figure? they were right and I didn´t listen to them, but I still don´t care.

well, i had 3 major repairs within the 1st yr i had the car....(my 86 egt)

cylinder head/gasket--->cylinder head was cracked--->total price for completion 300$$
Tires----->300$$
clutch--->200$$

now, after the clutch came the replacement of my distributor and all the other parts that are associated w/ it....

so, after i owned this car i spent something over 1500...and that´s on a 6.80/hr paycheck....where i only worked one day a week...and now i work 3 days a week at 7/hr

so....yeah, i know the buy something older is going to need something sooner or later....and to tell you the truth, i don´t think i´ll be buying that bimmer, just because after trying to do 5 series tires....and not being able to get them on, and scratching a freshly powder coated rim, and paying for it.....i´ve been drawn away from german cars....

i´m merely trying to keep my options open....but thanks for reminding me!

´86 Escort Gt
´85 Nissan 300zx

hell I wish I could make 7 bucks an hour. I´m still making 5.65/hr and I work my ass off...

probably explains why I´m crusing around in an LX wagon and not an EGT

Hey when I bought my GT I was only making 6.25 an hour at Arby´s...they screwed me, I could have been making 9 bucks an hour if my damn manager would´ve gotten off her ass and frikken trained me...anyway, on top of that I was also making 7.50 an hour at my other job hehe
So I had about 700 bucks saved up when I bought my GT for 1904. (the other 1200 was from my insurance company)
If you need extra cash get a second job for a few days a week, or if you´re determined like I was get a second full time job. work 80 hours a week, have no time but tons of cash. It´s worth it when you´re getting 13.25 an hour between the two jobs 250.00 every other week + 300 every week. (minus taxes) but that gave me cash out the wazoo to put into my car...and now that I think about it I sorta wish I had gotten a spankin new car when I had it. But now I won´t give up my Escort unless I have to.

damn james...you sound like me.....i was gonna pick up a second job...but at that time i was working 4-5 days a week, and only really had one weekend day to chill w/ my friends....but i decided working more than 3 days a week is too much for a 17 yr/o to handle at this time....

and plus, i probably wouldn´t have what i have now...so,

ya, i dunno..............

just need to find a car to buy, i know what i want, it´s just so hard to find one under 2000

i´m looking for the following
---80´s monte carlo-- 305/350
----80´s camaro with a 350
--90´s eclipse tsi awd
----anything with a bigger engine (mustangs, camaro´s)
-- late 80´s fiero gt (don´t know why)
or
--- 240sx

those are what i´m looking for....and right now, if i could find anything 5spd w/ a 6 cyl ..or auto 8cyl, i´ll be quite happy

we´ll see what comes my way in the next few months

I actually want to get a second EGT, or possible a small pickup with 4 wheel drive...but neither will happen I´m pretty sure. Oh well.

Well you already have two cars, I only have my scort...I´m thinkin about picking up a 3 day a week job to start paying for rent because as of right now I can afford to pay 300 for a car payment plus roughly 280 for insurance on both my Escort GT and the Corolla S I´m PROBABLY going to get here in a while...plus I want to move out, and my sister has this perfect place that was a 2 car garage converted to a 2 bedroom 1 bath 1 car attached garage place for like 370 plus utilities. (roughly 500) I need to move out and if I can have both my Ford and my Toyota (it really is a beautiful car, go to Toyota.com and check it out)...I will be set and very happy.
