Re: Forget the BMW
: : : I'm seriously thinking of trading in my S420 for a<br>smaller BMW. I think the Benz with it's size is just<br>too much of a car. For weekends it's really nice but<br>for daily driving, forget it...Any thoughts, drawback<br>with BMW?...thanks...<p>94 S420 <br>Carlsson wheels design 1/5<p><p>The E34 5 series isn't the most solid automobile in the world. The ZF 4HP22 automatic transmission is prone to failure around 100-125K miles, and electricals can also be a source of headaches. If you want a solid automobile, look at a 93-95 300E, 400E, E320, or E420 Mercedes. A much more "together" automobile in my opinion. Or, you could always look at a Volvo 850 GLT with the LPT (light-pressure turbo) engine, from 1996-97. These cars will do 0-60 in 6.8 seconds and will shame any 525i.<br>-Sam Parsons<br>85 380SE<br>87 Volvo 740 Turbo<p>WHY WOULD YOU WASTE YOUR MONEY ON A BMW ,,THOSE JUNK DONT EVEN HOLD UP .IF YOU ARE GONNA PAY THE HIGH PRICE FOR A CHEAP BUILT CAR,,YOU'RE REALLY GONNA PAY FOR IT IN THE FUTURE.
