i understand completely about the speed. i had an 88 528, although no quite as fast as your 98 328, it would drive very well at high speed. too bad it ate a clutch and tranny and its not worth puttin that kinda money into it.
Well, the 206lb/ft I originally had put quite a smile on my face. It was 1lb/ft more than my friends 2000 Eclipse GT and a lot more than my other friends'94 H22 Prelude. I would kick ass off the line with the traction control on but as soon as the VTEC kicked in it was a lost cause. The base torque on the 328 was alright, but the RWD and the heaviness of the car doesn't help at all.
I had to do something to match myself back up and keep up with the Jones'. The armada would be burning up some of the backroads and I kept getting my ass kicked by the GT, the Prelude H22, and my friends new WRX wagon. In second gear the H22 pulled away, in third the Eclipse GT and right from the get go the WRX had me with it's AWD. I had to do something. Especially when I maxed out at 135 and I had three of my friends passing me at 140-145+. Nowadays the competition is a little better with the ECU but I still get smoked.
My fiancee wants a Supra but I'm trying to move her across to something more serious.
MA, tell your fiancee to hold out until 2006. The new Supra with a boosted V6,8 or 12 is going to be sick and I know you'll want to borrow it, I would.
