Default Some machines I look at everyday

The good thing about working in a car dealership for a team-bhpian is that he gets to look/ogle at awesome machines and of course also gets to drive some great cars. (sometimes you have to drive some idiotic cars too but it's all worth it when you get your hands on a exotic machine.)
Take a look at some cars that I look at everyday!.

This one is RARE. The VolksWagen Corrado. (This baby stands right next to my desk!)


The thumping V6 from VW. Remember this is a 1995 model we are talking about.



Interior comes equipped with proper Recaro racing seats that are oh so sporty to sit in.



This one is a 1997 BMW Z3!. A customer traded in this car and a 1992 Honda Accord for a brand new VW Jetta TDi with DSG. Since I sold him the car it was only natural that i got to drive his trade-in. (sorry for the red eye!)



I wasn't too excited to drive this car when the guy told me it was a 4 cylinder! The car didnt give me that "BMW feel" especially after I had sampled the In-line six from BMW. Yes, I have driven a BMW 3. Check out some more pics of the Z3.



This is a 1999 BMW 3. Awesome piece of machine! All along I had heard of how a In-line 6 is more smooth then a V6 but I didn't expect the difference to be so HUGE! I could barely hear the engine running at idle. But yea, tap the accelarator and this beast lunged ahead like a cheetah. Unfortunately, I couldn't unleash the BMW power as I was driving right in rush hour Toronto traffic. Check this one out.

Isn't that a Z3? One of my favourite BMWs.
