I was at a used car dealership today, helping out a very good lady friend of mine choosing her next ride. It’s hard for her to decide what to buy, when the number of cars she has ever got a proper impression of can be counted on two hands, and the ones she drove don’t even fill one. So she’s choosing by color, which is fine by me, as long as it’s a 9yo Mazda 6 wagon, and not a 11yo BMW 3 series Touring.

Also, there was a nice BMW 520i on this lot. E34 late model with AC, air bags, and most likely ABS too. I don’t think I ever sat in an E34, which is strange as I have tried almost all of the other 5 series generations. And you know what? I felt at home instantly. So now I need a nice E34 in my life, and this might even fit in the program i have for 2016....

Anyway, now back to our usual programming of left-field RWD sedans. Here’s a Granada 2-door, for your... misery.
