Runs on alcohol and produces gas. Well done indeed.

"Nobody makes me bleed my own blood, nobody!"
You have taken VERY good care of yours no doubt. 500k is just breaking that bad boy in lol. Gosh that was a great engine.
400hp? lol not even close unless you have extensive work done..
get the M5 (: S62 ftw! (yes I am biased)
edit: btw 2001-2006 are all E46 for the M3 and pretty much the same car.. just curious as to why you wanted an 02 :P

Winter - 2003 Yamaha R1, bored and stroked to 1200CC, put down 187rwhp.
Pros - fun as hell, good on gas.
Cons - scary as hell, people try to kill me daily.
Summer - 2001 BMW M5
Pros - lots of work done, makes over 400rwp, loud/fast. Surprises the hell of out a lot of ricers and attracts sexy ASU girls. Weighs 4000# and still runs 12s.
Cons - parts are expensive, MPGs suck.
2005 BMW X5(Emerald green with tan leather interior.)
2011 Mercedes E350(Black on black on black)
New Benz. Suck it
2002 F250 Lariat - 7.3L Diesel
Like: Never made a payment on it, so paid for for ages. Very little work had to be done to it over the years beyond typical maintenance, still handles well even with 213k miles on it. Being diesel, you can drive for at least 400k miles as long as you take care of it. I will probably buy a car for highway driving once I hit 300k miles, but I will keep the truck indefinitely for when I need it.
Dislike: When on the $h*tty roads in B'ham, without a load on the back, it bounces you around a lot. It was built to carry some weight. Also dislike being in strange towns and having trouble finding a diesel pump. Worst thing is going to a station with 75 gas pumps and 1 diesel pump and someone driving a Smart car is filling up in front of the diesel pump while the other 74 pumps are open.
I miss my 7.3, sold it before I moved out to AZ because of emissions.. rolled coal like a freight train.
I've been contemplating trading the M5 for another truck to haul my quads/dirtbikes around in, hard to find 7.3s... junk 6.0s everywhere.
2007 Wrangler Unlimited X
2012 Ford Edge Limited
Love them both
Wrangler is very solid ride
Edge is very family friendly
I have a 2004 Dodge 3500 diesel crew cab dually with 154000 miles.
The good it pulls great an I have it chipped so it gets around 20 mpg an is fairly realiable
The bad its a big beast to drive around town an parking spaces are usually to small for it an buying six tires as opposed to four sucks a$$
Also have a 2006 Dodge 3500 diesel laramie with regular wheel base 64000 miles
The good its loaded with everything so thats nice an pulls ok but not as stable as the dually.
The bad dont have it chipped so it only gets around 16 mpg an have had several problems. Ball joints, fan motor for the ac an heat went bad, the alternator had a short in it an kept draining my batteries while I was driving. Would stop some where turn it off get back in it an go to leave an it would be DOA.
Wife has a Nissan Altima 3.5S
The good its loaded with everything it gets around 26 mpg which is ok but not great for what it is.
The bad it has a sportscar look but no power. Hoping to talk her into trading for a Jeep Sahara before long lol

Mine gets better mileage than the F150 V8 I had before it, and the F150 had a lot more minor mechanical issues to deal with. It would seem more practical for me to have a car, since I'm in sales, but I also flipped houses for a few years and owned a handyman business that I had to help out with from time to time. And while I could get better mileage out of something else, the longevity of my truck outweighs fuel efficiency. I get about 19mpg on the highway and probably around 16 in the city, and since I'm not going to buy a Prius Hybrid either way, I just can't see the point in swapping. Besides, I'd miss the rumble of the engine.
More balls meaning get up an go. Both were brand new when I got them, both were ridden hard, both were driven 20k miles plus, and both were compared by me. That's what I mean when I said balls.
yea mine with new turbo, injectors, HPOP, fuel plate, exhaust, tune, and a built trans still got better MPGs than my V8 F-150. Plus, when people were on your ass, this was always fun!
I miss the hell out of that truck.
i had a 2000 Ford Crown Vic at one point and had that same problem...though it was funny to see ppl slowly put on seat belts and slow roll past my pot head friends' houses
i now drive a 2004 Z71, love it except the mpg
Old one on the right new one on the left
nice! I love the sound of modular 4.6s. I wish the 2vs had more balls, like the 4vs do. 03-04 cobra is still one on my list I havent owned. Ive probably had 5 or 6 stangs, bit of a car whore.
They are going to get dirty on that dirt driveway
Love my stang put straight pipes on her she will purr
That's parents house
Sh*t dude, mine never burned oil like that...lmao
