No worries. Just very impolite when talking about something someone else obviously takes a lot of pride in.

Thank you for your polite words. Figured someone would understand the gem. It's another turbo 6.

I remember my dad was very excited when those first came out, he had a friend who had a Grand National and a GNX.

If memory serves these were the quickest 0-60 production cars available when they came out (at least in the states, around that time our cars and imports had their nuts cut off at the factory).

when i was growing up in Detroit.....the Grand National/GNX was a big deal on the streets!! there are still quite a lot of them floating around Detroit for Woodward cruises, etc. Definitely a car going up in value.....and will be a future collectable for sure.

You drive an X1. I would make fun of you, but you have it bad enough since it was probably your partner who forced you to get it. At least you can convince people it's your beater car.

GNs are definitely among the most badass cars ever made.

Because everyone who bought a 135i bought it because it was spacious and versatile. Not sure where you got the "faster" notion but that just shows how much you know...

The guy driving the minivan just called me an American sheep. Got it. Same guy who told the OP that his classic American muscle car belongs in a junkyard. You know very little about cars and why people buy them.

Memory serves you pretty well. Yes they were the fastest American production car 0-60 as well as the 1/4 mile. It was faster than a Ferrari testarossa in its year, 1987 mind you. The only that was somewhat attainable (price-wise) was the Porsche that could beat it.

With some modern upgrades to the suspension (tubed control arms (upper and lower), coilovers, and some frame stiffening) can make it keep up with even a C5 zo6 on a road coarse.

Let me get you the name of a member of the GN forums and he's beaten one as proof.

Do you work for a shovel manufacturer? You seem to be gifted at digging holes. As someone who's owned a 135i and an X1 35i, I can say quite factually that the 1er is faster, handles better and is more fun. The X1 is more practical, and with the lack of a 335i F31, the better choice for my wife. But bashing a Grand National and a 135is in the same thread is getting a bit pathetic.
