    Pictures of the car taken by the current owner. I'm hoping to pick it up next week.

    '92 iC? No Air Bag? Did they swap out the steering wheel? Is it a grey market euro car?

    Hyundai become a sudo lux sedan brand? Is It a better lux sedan brand then Buick, caddy, Acura, Infiniti.

    Jd power and consumer reports love the brand - pricing in line or better then group- strong engine choices and a range of cars not matched by most. Sonata, azera, genesis, Equus. Thoughts?

    "'92 iC? No Air Bag?"

    You know, I was trying to remember what year airbags / roller coaster seatbelts were mandated. You're right, of course - I didn't even notice.

    Yes, I rechecked his spec sheet and it has an MTech 1 steering wheel listed.

    It's a US car. One enthusiast owner, fanatically maintained. Only significant mods are 15" BBS RZ rims, E30 M3 springs/Bilstein struts, and the radio (which I'll ditch).

    Yes, it is a beauty KD. I've always loved the vert - wanted one since I was in college.

    "that isn't going to scratch that M3 itch, though.. "

    No, it's missing about 100 hp...among other things.

    It isn't intended as a replacement though, so all is well.

    ***Those offended by talk of Porsches and other sports cars please do not read any further***

    My daughter turns 15 next month so we have been looking to pick up an inexpensive 3rd car anyways. I still want to replace my M with a Porsche, but until recently, I was pretty much limited to the 911 because we still need the backseat on weekends sometimes - usually not for 4 people but, I often used the M to shuttle the kids around.

    Now that I have found another car with a backseat, I am free to look at 2 seater replacements for the M. I can get a 2009 Cayman S for about $20,000 less than a 2009 911 Carrera, so I'm even saving money.

    It's a win-win. Even my wife agrees, so it must make sense. :blush:

    Congrats on the new rig

    The only reason I asked is because my '90 E30 325i had one.

    It was red too IIRC.

    It was red. Excellent memory. Good luck with it. Looks like it is in fantastic shape!

    Congrats on the new car..

    BTW, the Cayman S is a great car, I like them better then the 911
  • fedlawmanfedlawman Posts: 3,118
    Thanks Graphic and Flight!

    Cayman S is seriously on the radar but I also remembered a conversation you (Flight) and I had recently. 2002+ Acura NSX. Mmmmm, tasty.
  • flightnurseflightnurse 35K feetPosts: 1,590
    Yes, the NSX is one of my secret desires, for me the 2002+ is the ones to get. There are plenty of aftermarket companies to help increase the HP on the engine. Driveabilty is excellent, and the car continues to turn heads today.
