Haha I'm originally from Honolulu but moved to Portland a decade ago. Back home I was in the Nissan fanboy club and would drift race at Campbell Industrial Park on Friday nights when it used to be a race track. My Sentra SE-R with an SR20DET motor swap, then my S13 240SX which also got the SR20DET swap too. Memories lol

Yeah haha this was back in the late 90's. I sure miss that S13 though, it was the ultimate drift car. I have been actively looking for an S13 or S14 in decent shape as a project car but no luck so far.

Not all bmws are like this, there are lucky ones out there, but I'm not gonna say that BMWs are like toyotas in reliability. The E90 is relatively good, its just some of the smaller things, or electronics like the Electric Water Pump or Valve Cover Gasket that seem to be the biggest issue, and 35i's usually tend to have expensive turbo replacements. There are some stupid designs to BMWs though, not every one is perfect, i remember the E46s were notorious for cooling issues, mine itself blew a head-gasket but that was after 200k miles thankfully and not earlier like some horror stories i've heard.
thats no good! I have this vision of being old and grey and cruising around in my e92=)

M vs MP but I personally think they both look awesome. F22 was definitely more agile to drive and if it could be had with DCT and S65, I'd be in that car.

My prior 235 and current E92.

I had an e92 335i (08) and it's was an absolute blast to own. I do miss is as the f22 isn't raw enough (yet).

My current fleet is an 04 E46 M3 and the 14 F22 m235i

I sold my e93 M3 for my 2017 M20xi. Living in MA where we can get some harsh winters has already been far more practical with proper winters plus AWD as opposed to RWD.

Only thing I really missed was that glorious naturally aspirated V8 (which I heard scream all the time in the convertible M3). For that reason I added a dinan midpipe and M performance exhaust. Itís a different exhaust note of course but so much more palatable as compared to stock. Otherwise the acceleration is excellent and size is comparable
