1991 BMW 318is

I haven’t checked out Enthusiast Auto Group’s website in a while (what can I say, I hate crying myself to sleep), but they appear to still be in the hunt for clean, non-M3 E30s. It’s great to see, quite frankly, because there are some very decent cars out there that would otherwise be subjected to the hackings and swappings of the bandwagon that’s currently discarded their JDM’d 240SXs in favor of the lovely 3er. This 318is is the preferred spec of the M42-equipped lineup, and the upgraded wheels are the only deviation from stock that I can see. Fun fact: these OEM accessory rollers were primarily sold as upgrades for the E36. I came into possession of an early 90s BMW accessories brochure, right at the cross-over from the E30 to the E36. These wheels were listed alongside things like the venerable Husco armrest and E30-specific roof rack. Therefore, as much as I love the OEM basketweaves, these are actually period correct!

2007 BMW Z4 M Coupe

Like a lot BMW fans, the styling language implemented across the range has left me with mixed feelings. I try and temper myself and keep receptive to new design, but more often than not, what I’ve seen on the showroom floor over the last decade has left me yearning for the classics. In the case of the BMW Z4 M Coupe, however, BMW hit the nail on the head. While the Z4 Roadster was a little bit awkward, the fastback lines and beefed up haunches of the M Coupe looked sharp. This black Z4 M Coupe for sale in Maryland may be of the new school, but its mission is that of speed and power.

20K Friday – Super Sedan Edition: E28 M5 v. W124 500E – Which Would You Choose?

What’s going on here? Tax returns are still heading out and we’re feeling rich? Well, not so much but it is nice to dream. While normally on Friday we look for the best deals, this duo was too good to pass up. You could argue about who started the super-sedan trend, but there’s no doubt that the Germans perfected it. Two of the most memorable of these are the E28 M5 and W124 500E; blunt instruments that achieve their goals of luxurious speed in very different ways. We’ve covered many M5s recently of different generations, but as I mentioned in the M5 Roundup, while it’s tempting to buy the cheapest M5 you can get your hands on that’s often a poor decision; in many ways, the same could be said about the 500E. So, here are two quite nice examples to choose from – which would be your dream? Let’s start with the M5:

1988 BMW 325is

Put this one in the category of honest, used cars. Honest, used cars that will appreciate handily after purchase. Though undesirable in color, this 1988 325is is the next-most desirable E30 to the M3. Featuring an unmodified chassis with mint interior and very clean basketweave alloys (with centercaps!), this is one of those cars that I feel confident saying will be worth $10-$12K in no time.
