well, i haven't been around the board lately (i want to sell the e34, and if i read posts, i jsut end up upgrading it more), but i have some updates and responses in regard to my post a few weeks ago.

first off, responses:

the 944 turbo had a 0 to 60 time of 6 seconds, the 89 model (often reffered to as the "s") had on of 5.7 seconds

the 90-96 300zx tt had on of 5.5 - 5.7 seconds
it had 300 hp
the n/a car had 222 hp

just to clear that up

i like the nissan because of the sleeper factor (not that it looks slow, but that it says nissan and will be assumed to be a fwd ricer) also, i dont get the same attitude from other drivers that i do in my bimmer

i have been reading up on both cars quite a bit and the reliability of the z is starting to turn me off. the tt's seem to be amazing when everything is working right, but when its not, it seems it can be a nightmare

the porsche on the other hand seems to be relatively reliable if properly maintained, however, it seems that regular maintinance items can cost quite a bit, and that attutide i get from other drivers will be amplified. (i know this, because my friend has one and we get dirty looks and such constantly.

now, to make things more complicated, i have added a mitsubishi 3000GT vr4 to the list as well as a 95 m3

i am not looking at rx7s or supra's because they are out of my price range. also, if oyu follow the link to the m3 board, those rx7's seem to be a maitinance nightmare

the m3 is obviously more expensive than the rest, but i think it might be worth it

as always, opinions are appreciated
