It was an exceptional car, extremely reliable and enjoyable.
I replaced it with a 2006 Z4M. Although much faster, I feel that the Z4M lacks a lot of the BMW spirit which was ever present in the E28.
That's almost the exact same thing with me... My first BMW was an '84 533i.. I loved that car, even with it's worn out steering and suspension, and missing 3rd gear, it was still a blast to drive, and it made the best of the 180HP it had. What a great sound that little engine made. I paid $600 for the car, put about $500 into it, drove it for about 10k miles and sold it for $2,000. I should have kept it, it was black with red interior, and cosmetically it was VERY nice.

I sold that and now have my 07 M Coupe.
