    Word of warning - if it's black, you may have problems with people pestering you for dried plant leaves and flour like substances tonight.

    0-60 in under 8 seconds I believe, if it's the manual, just over 8 seconds auto.

    Gadgets wise, It would depend on the trim level, and how much the original buyer spent on optional extras etc.

    How is it you're insuring yourself on that?

    Are you going to offer to let him drive your 200sx?

    What do you think to the bmw? Are you running different suspension on the 200?

    Make sure you are not driving this using DOC extension on your insurance - unless you can afford to buy a 25k replacement ;)

    I think you'll find it pretty poor and boring in comparisson to your S14. Probably more comfortable and luxurious, but definitely not as quick or as fun.

    Freefaller, thats the problem. Ive just started a new job and im finding the 40 min drive to work in the 200 rather annoying... sure its good fun but its just not practical.

    Im testing this BMW because im entitled to a company car, so if i like this 525 im going for the 530 diesel and sell the 200sx :)

    Shame to sell the SX - but I understand the reasons why you'd want to do that :) 530d is a fab car though. :)

    Ah right. I wouldnt hand my keys over to the average BMW driver either as I'm not sure I'd get it back again at this time of year :)

    Swaping to coilovers completely transforms the handling. Night and day. But I too would sell my car if I needed to commute in it, I think.

    Yes, the BMW is the fastest RWD he has ever had... so letting him loose in the 200 on his own was definatly a big no no :D

    Dont get me wrong, the handling with the teins is spot on but like you say, no good to commute in and visit clients... its rather loud lol :D
