    Nevertheless..even the E9x 3 series still has very limited space compared to the Perdana...it's just the design, and extra thought going into handling/weight distribution I guess.

    I guess the BMW's are designed that way so that it feels tight and sporty, making it really a driver's car to enjoy toying with..

    Cannot compare like that la bro. E36 designed in the mid to late 80's. There was already a discussion about this. It's not fair pitting the E36 to a Waja. That's like saying the Intel x486 is crappy compared to the current i5 or i7 core. :p

    hehe... I know. That's why I bold "today".. just for u.. :p so when u have an option to buy a PC today, would u take x486.. :p

    Even an E34 is no match to a Kangoo, head on.. amazing how car design has advanced.. :top:

    computers and car a bit different la. 10 year old processor, (intel pentium 3) can barely surf the net now..
    but 10 year old car, say a nicely maintained e39 is very nice and comfy

    Lack of refinement....but its good at its time i guess....e46 is much more refine but less manly IMHO....put a e46 M3 and e36 M3 side by side...i think the latter have a more macho look? Just my very humble opinion.....dont shoot me fellow e46 enthusiast :D

    Nothing, just the rear axle would do. Not easy to find 3.23 ratio here. Most are 3.15. There was a 3.45 LSD recently I think from kelvinjb.

    still sourcing da LSD axle hehe! i knw it can b found! drifting is 'kind of' posssible without da LSD axle.. tried it on wet road but must go quite fast but it's pretty hard 2 do - when 1 wheel only is spinning lol!!

    still of cos nothing compares 2 having an LSD axle... my mech has done an E36 wit nissan LSD or toyota LSD axle i can't remember but he sed it is hard as f*ck 2 do, lotsa stuff 2 custom/mod. he also told me grab an M3 unit, plug n play!!
