    I was able to figure out what kind of person u are when you said something negative about the BMW and then praised the Civic right after lol
    I’ve seen e36-46 with over 300k. Also my Impreza headgaskets went at 100k with timing belt. My e46 has 150k with original gaskets and seals. Every car is different.

      @LEGO! MAN! if you keep looking you'll find one, half of them are crashed and need work . Just beware an s2k has crazy insurance and the resale value won't go up until a couple years, most people don't care that much about em.

    I would go Crown Victoria instantly. Sure gas mileage may be bad, but they are pretty reliable and of course, it has a V8.
