The older I get, the more often I reflect on how easy I've had it in my life relative to what they went through, and how appreciative I am for what they did for me.
Amen! My parents (first generation) were just over for dinner tonight explaining to my kids that they came to the states for college and had to attend classes in their third learned language (English). I think their first mortgage was something like 8-10%! They paved the way for us for sure.

There was one sold in 2016 with 400k miles that still had the original trans and motor. Decently fast, I'd say the equivalent of a 2016 mustang 5.0 with a few bolt ons. Really good 15 in. brembo brakes, 5/10 steering feel, not bad handling, and absolute horrible ride quality. My M3 is lowered quite a bit on KW HAS kit and it still rides 10x better than that car. The exhaust note when you put an aftermarket exhaust on it was insane, very exotic like (look up vids of the rr-racing bazooka exhaust). Trans wasn't bad, the up and downshifts were crisp and responsive. But if you tried to double downshift or double upshift the trans would get confused and take like 10 seconds to finish the second downshift/upshift. I abused the living hell out of that car every single day in the 120 degree AZ heat and it never had a single problem. When I tell you that thing was bulletproof, I truly mean BULLETPROOF. I tapped the limiter on like every shift because it would give a nice V8 backfire and apparently that's how you get the best 1/4 mile times since the powerband just keeps climbing all the way to the limiter. Tuners raised the limiter nearly 1000 rpm because there was so much left on the table with the stock tune. If you guys are frustrated with new BMW's not being able to have their ECU's cracked, it took 9 YEARS for someone to finally crack that thing... I miss being able to beat on that thing every single day with full confidence knowing nothing will ever break because we all know you can't do that in a BMW lol. My favorite part of that car was how nobody knew what it was so I would always get people stopping me confused as hell thinking I cammed or V8 swapped an IS250. It was hilarious beating mustangs, Camaros, and chargers and then watching them pull up shocked that they lost to a Lexus. Oh yeah and that car never had a SINGLE rattle even with 120k miles, a super loud droney exhaust, and horrible jarring suspension. The build quality was fantastic! Its nowhere near the fastest or best handling car out there but thats what made it perfect for little old irresponsible 19-23 year old me. So much respect for that car and Toyota, that thing owes me nothing and it could easily take 500k miles of abuse.

Sorry for the long post, that car will just always have a special place in my heart
Sorry for the LATE reply! : )

Thats exactly what Ive heard before about this vehicle. I always wanted one and searched for one before getting my f80, but they just aged a bit too much for what I was looking for. Great vehicle though. When Toyota goes all in they make some pretty special vehicles.

Side note...theres a guy I see in my county ALL THE TIME that is running a black G430 that I believe has a turbo on it as its got an inter cooler poking out from the front bumper, and that dude runs the shit out of that car. I mean every time I see him hes flooring it and his exhaust sounds amazing. This has been going on for like 4-5 years now. Were always going the opposite direction of each other otherwise Id flag him down to give him props for such a unique ride.

Man I love Toyota : )
