Default Need some help/ advice and opinions - 05-06-2017, 10:36 AM

I have a 08 335i 104k miles just did all major repairs besides turbos . I have it for sale and trade. I got a offer for a srt4 with 28k miles on chassis and 900 miles on motor build and tranny build . It's got paperwork to prove he put 11,800 in tranny and engine. Stock turbo and injectors though. Aftermarket fuel system as well. He also is willing to throw a 08 ninja 1000 with 45k miles in the deal. He lives 4 hours away and is willing to drive the car and bike. What's your thoughts. Neons are hideous but I know my turbos are going out soon and it's best offer I have gotten lol

Turbos dying is a $3000 grand job, are you really sure you want to drive something else over that? I wouldn't.

Well if they aren't dead, they might keep going for a while, start saving as fast as you can.

A car with 100K for one with 30K and a bike?

Take that deal ... so long as there's no lien on his toys.

Really though, the SRT-4 is a hell of a good car. The seats beat the hell out of BMW seats for anything racing.
I don't know about the 3's but in the 1's I have to gansta lean to ware a helmet. Really bothers me not sitting more attentive (I'm 6').

Ya the skittle is FWD, but with LSD it's got gobs of traction and can be turned into a really good track car for not a ton of money.
And it's not difficult to take the car apart and put some sound deadening in to make it feel nicer. And with a little Alacantara here and there, you're right back in a luxury sedan.

Not a bike guy, to dangerous for my liking. As something to daily, I love my BMW, when not pushing it, my drive is quiet and I don't have any squeaks it rattles.

I think the regular car review of the SRT-4 mirrors many of my feelings. It is undeniably fast, but you have compromises for that, compromises I personally couldn't stand.

That's just my thoughts​, as some dude on a BMW forum, who fell in love with BMW when his dad bought a 2000 540i ten years ago. So I have huge amounts of bias.

I retract my do it statement. The piss-poor cage kills the deal to me. It's just going to make it a real PITA getting in and out of for daily use.
Honestly, that cage would kill you more than it'd protect you.
Unless it's bolt in. Then it wouldn't be so bad. Remove and recycle.
