I am an E34 lover.
I like final drive to go to the rear wheels.
I believe German torque is my friend, and I need not have 8k on the dial to take off.
I like the substantive feel of the clutch, gear shift, steering and brakes, and the fact that it drives nothing like a Japanese/Korean sh*tbox
I like the fact that I can pull big G's in the corners
I like the fact that it rewards good driving
I do not believe I need bad body kits.
I do not resort to gold plated highlights.
I take pride in the level of ever-engineering now abandoned.
I expect my E34 to drive the same way for another 10 years. (when E39's are falling by the wayside)
I like the fact I can work on it.
I like the relative simplicity of the design
I get a buzz out of driving it each day, even if on the freeway.
I like the fact that nowhere else today can I buy a well-engineered large capacity straight 6 rwd car.

Yep, I'm pretty fond of the bronze-beige beast.
