The focus replacement(heres a hint, BIMMER)

well as some of you may know, our car was set on fire for more details go here:
Fire Fire Fire!

well this is the car we got to replace it: A BMW 320i you cant get these cars in the usa, only europe and canda .
heres what makes the deal sweeter. 25k flat for cost
2003

warrenty wasn't activated till late 04 meaning the 160 000 km warrenty doesn't end until 2010 .
also the car was bought as a gift for a guys wife, its a MTX she likes to talk on the cell ect. so get ready for it she only pit 8000 km on the car! 8000 km in the years! the Car is brand new.

here are the pictures, tell me what you think.



Its Basicaly a BMW on the E46 Cassis. It has a 2.2L engine not bad.



THE Z4M

Ok when I went to the dealship a saw an amazing 2002 M5 they wanted 62k for, but someone bought it.

Anyways seeing that the manager was so nice and promised me a ride in it then it got sold. the dealer guy named patrick said here look at what we got last night a Z4 M (motorsports) hard top.(not those fugly soft tops)
this car was gorgious the lines the hood the roof, everthing visualy was crazy. Then the ride, this thing is a dream it handle so perfectly going a 110 MPH patrick being the excellent salesman he is deicdes to show me how it handles at high speed. so he swings left the right the car stay level and doesn't roll much at all. then the big progressive turn, so he down shifts and slams the gas and we power through the turn. it was intense.

so basicaly if you have the cash for a Z4 M series, I highly recomend picking one up.

Can anyone help me with photoshop?

You can use stock stuts on the BM's but i wouldn't recommend it, those cars are notorius for sagging in the back end.
not replacing the struts is going to make this situation worse
