I had a bit of a soft spot for the Supra in twin turbo form.

The Supra was a very quick car...whatever happened to it, was Toyota having problems selling them?

The three big Japanese super cars disappeared from the US in the mid-90s. The biggest problem was the new smog specs. Though they did live on a little longer in Japan.

Both Mazda with the RX-7, and Nissan with their Z, stopped shipping to America after 1995 (when the new smog regs went into effect). Toyota held out a little longer with the Supra with the last one shipping in 1998. But the RX-7 and Supra went until 2002 in Japan. The Z took a two year hiatus in Japan from 2000 until 2002, when it was then reintroduced to the world as the 350. Of course Mazda brought out their RX-8 in 2003. Toyota has only shown concepts of a possible Supra-like car at auto shows, no real plans at this point.

Drove a 2007 BMW 328i today.

There must have been something wrong with me or wrong with the car last time I drove a BMW. Because this thing effing rocked.

If I'm willing to pay for it, is there any reason why I shouldn't buy this car?

Doooo iiiiiit...

Ok, to be honest, I have heard that maintenance and parts on BMWs can be quite expensive. But you should do it anyway.

It's a lovely car, Tom.

I've heard the same, Ken. The problems I've heard mostly about Bimmer's is usually to do with expensive electrical repairs.

One other thing is a *new* '11 Sonata runs about the same price, and I believe the body style was designed by the same guy. I know the Hyundai's probably not your thing(headroom was tight for me), but a test drive wouldn't cost you anything Tom.

Nice car Tom, not to mention that its a much more respectable sports car for us old guys. wink

I was surprised at your original comments as I had an opportunity to ride in a 323i years ago with a guy who used to race motor cycles professionally. I'll never look at British traffic circles the same again.

Thumbs up! I also was surprised that you hadn't liked BMWs the first time around. They generally are very good cars for the active driver.

No idea what the blue book is, and too lazy to look it up, but if you can get a good deal, I think this one should give you lots of pleasure.
