Good replies, all! (BTW, the '91 is a 735i). I have also found a '91 300SE with 145K on it for $7000. It needs a drive shaft and the timing cover is leaking. Other than that, it's pretty nice. I think I'll give it a closer look.
I appreciate your input as I really love my 300SE. I think deep down I know a Benz is a better car long term. I guess I just really like the way a 7 series looks.
It's very sporty while the 126 has all the sportyness of a bank vault, but it's as tough as one too.
