    Wow, what a find. That's totally "Transporter" right there :)


    On that note, how can any team of engineers sleep at night building a car that gets 13 mpg ?

    Goddammit... probably would have bought that instead of the S2k. But probably not. M5 maintenance and insurance = $$$

    Why so cheap though?

    I think it has to do with the resale value not being as good as it was a few years ago.

    2100 for gas guzzler? holy shit... lol the 03-04 Cobras only had a 1k GG tax, and it usually got 9 mpg.

    What are those four buttons on the drivers door just below the handle?

    Lesse... 2005 STi or 2000 M5. About the same price...

    I'd go with the STi myself. Call me a loser, but the M5 just isn't... it.

    I think it has a lot to do with the total price of the car. Hard to think of them taxing you $2100 on a car that cost less then 1/3rd the price.

    the M321? that's for the seats. 3 drivers can save their seat settings so when they get in they push the button and it goes back to where it was before.

    thats freaking Horrible 13mpg....how is it will all this high tech engineering....they can't get these cars to make high power and good gas mileage..shit Vettes were making 300hp back in 92 and getting easily 25mpg.....i was getting 21mpg with 437hp and i drove like a moron.....just another reason why i am not impressed with foriegn cars that cost a fortune..Its a nice car and all but that 74k back in 2000 and 13mpg(if that), you can keep it..

    Exactly, my vette got 25 mpg, same as my Supras. My red TGP got 25 mpg and the black one 19 mpg because of it's shot exhaust system. And those cars outperform and out-design new cars by a long shot.
