My brother owned one of those, and my step mom still does.
I swear, those are nicer than the new ones. Cost cutting is evident, IMHO.

It may be short on character, but from the pictures, that Civic looks to be in really nice shape.

civic looks nice. I could deal with it. And yeah, that vintage in many ways is preferable.
Just make it an EX or SE with a roof, and I am in!

Q: Not for you, for me...
Might be asking you the value of my current ride...

The Castrol 0W-30 and 5W-40 are now both LL-01 rated- previously the 5W-40 was only rated LL-98. That said, I run Mobil 0W-40 in the 3ers and Rotella T6 5W-40 in the X3.

A high-mileage Euro car? Might as well keep the bimmer.
mazda has the V6, so it doesn't meet the mileage requirement. Gorgeous, though. Just wish it had the 4-banger.
Legacy .... maybe. I'll add it to my list. But I'm kinda thinking I don't WANT to spend the full $5k if I don't have to.

I like that 135 a lot. I'm a big fan of that lemon interior, which we had on our previous 3-series. I don't think it's as hard to take care of as some say - we had 60k miles on ours when we traded it and it looked pretty darn good. And that's with carting kids around regularly.
Considering the low miles and equipment on it, seems like a decent price.
