Default I have a sickness...

I keep buying cars without getting rid of any! Here is the newest addition to the Johns fleet that I picked up last Thursday:




It is an '01 325Ci 5-speed. I came across a deal I couldn't pass up so I bought it to be a nice daily driver and not much more. Sorry for the crappy cell phone pics. I'll get better ones once I get back from Nationals and get it cleaned up properly. Now the fleet consists of:

'06 Chevy Trailblazer SS
'04 Chevy 2500 HD 4x4
'01 BMW 325Ci
'96 Honda Accord EX (for sale after I return from Nationals)
'95 Mazda Miata R package
'91 Honda CRX hf
'90 Mazda Miata (soon to be turbo again)

I need a bigger garage!

The TBSS is the quickest right now, but my new BEGi manifold and DP showed up last week so the miata will get turbo'd again very soon and should be good for around 300 at the wheels.

No, you just need to find good deals. I only paid $8900 for the Bimmer.

Thanks for the offer, but I have a just over an acre lot so that won't be necessary.

114K miles. Previous owner bought the car last Sept w/ 60K. He was in medical sales, so most of the mileage was accumulated in the past year on the hwy. He also gave me a stack of reciepts for the service he has had performed over the past year w/ mobile 1 oil changes every 5K. It also just had the 100K service performed.
