Thanks for this insight. I'm curious if there are more supporting or countering opinions to this. I looked at one recently. I've thought about moving on from the 85 to something that fits me better. Hmmm... explore seat options or surrender.

Car is SOLD. I post cars for sale occasionally and am not a dealer...just an enthusiast or more like an addict. I would like to respond to Cevan about the Kinda "****ty" comment. I didn't post the background on the car's engine because it's a complicated story and deserves to be discussed by phone. Most ads don't have 100% of the details about a car (how could they?) and any serious buyer is going to pick up the phone anyway. The background of the car's engine, however, was disclosed in each and every phone call that I took. If I was trying to be "****ty" I could easily have not said anything about the engine at all and just sold the car as a 56K car. In any case, some buyers saw it as a positive and some as a negative. The ultimate purchaser saw the new engine as a positive because of the M97 version and the low mileage. Buyer still conducted an oil analysis and PPI/leakdown. Car passed all with flying colors and is going to another enthusiast fortunately.
