Em1 to bagged tacome to bmw 540

Okay I need opinions . I have a 99 civic SI (em1) . I have the chance to trade the civic for a 02 air bagged( ajustable ride height) Toyota Tacoma extended cab . then trade it for a 99 BMW 540 . what would you do? The 99 si, needs nice after market suspension to be complete and ride good, needs nothing else . The bagged truck will need new bags soon . The BMW a/c don't work . what would you do i daily an 08 FA5 on CCWs ?

So let me get this straight, you're going to trade your 99-00 Si for a lowerred Toyota Tacoma, then trade the Tacoma for a BMW 540 that has issues?

Seems like a lot of trading and leg work. And I really cant answer anyway because besides Si, I have no idea of the values of tge other vehicles since they been in production for decades, they could be worth $500, or $50,000.

I'd keep the Si.

The BMW is a dime a dozen, and not worth much.

The slammed mini-truck blows

And thwt is still way too much leg work.

There's a joke about Tennessee in there somewhere, but I probably shouldn't make it.

Oh C,mmon testify, do it.

K, as for the truck, it really depends if you're gonna use it, like use the bed to haul stuff. The bmw, I think it's too old + gas guzzler. I would keep the fa5+em1. Btw, I f-ed my sub by putting my son's bike in the trunk, still works thou.

E39's get decent mileage, so it won't down gas like larger V8 cars, I'd just stay away from it because if someone is willing to trade an E39 for a couple of bagged cars, I'd seriously question the quality and reliability of that BMW.

I can't imagine there would be much left of the bed of the truck if it has bags ??? I'd say keep the civic unless you are needing a truck ! My little brother just got rid of an older BMW 745i thats was in need of some work and wasn't worth the trouble. KEEP THE EM1 !

I could have gone all G rated Jeff Foxworthy with it, or channelled Ron White and hit 'em below the belt.

Whatever I would have said, it would have simply been material lifted from a real comedian.

i rather sell the fa5 to get the truck and keep the em1 , gotta remember they only make the EM1 for 2 years and 70% of them either out of the country, total lost, salvage. turn into drag cars.

my fa5 is paid for . not selling that and the fa5 is so much better of a car than the EM1 . faster rides better . the bagged truck isnt worth getting rid of the FA5 . thats
just stupid !.
