    A 1980s German sedan, available with all-wheel drive. It features precise handling like any proper German car, as well as absurdly large US-spec bumpers and funky bits of trim and stripping everywhere. It's as comfortable carving up winding back roads as it is taking a beating in a demo derby.

    Your forum editing can do you no good, e-mails tell me everything. Is it a problem that I want to know what will power these cars? It lets me plan for appropriate possible upgrades to them in the future.

    And FYI, most of the previews with my name are compliments. I have only asked for engine options twice, and that's on the cars that intrest me the most.

    Awesome! :D I love the front end, it's really typically German! To be honest, the bumpers don't seem that strange to me, at least it doesn't have those hidious big rubber blocks on it that the old US-spec Porsche 911 Carreras and Lamborghini Countachs had... Rear window seems a bit big and flat to me, but oh well.

    I know you said it's *available* with AWD, so I think you'll do it anyway, but please also add one with just RWD, because this thing needs some proper Cobra 11 sideways (and barrel-roll) action :D

    Nice one! This would look great with a touring/rally skin. If you do another video in the future, you should test this car on the rally course from the video "Rallying a Street Car." It would look really good.

    I'm liking the shape and rear lights but the front lights look too Jap style. As this seems to be based on an old BMW, I think circular shaped lights would be better.
    Edit: I suppose circles could be textured in the lights.

    I retracted that last part after figuring it wasn't worth asking.

    Plenty of Audis from the period have similar simple rectangular headlights

    I want to crash this thing. Everybody wants to crash this thing.
    I especially want to see how it'll hold up in crashes compared to the Bruckel LeGran and Grand Marshal.

    Curious question... I was wondering, since BMW stands for Bayerische Motoren Werke, what does ETK stand for? If it's something German I assume the K stands for "Kraften"...?
    Liking this car more and more, it's looking cooler every time I look at it :)

    That's awesome, it also resembles a bit of a Saab I think.

    Looks really nice, reminds me of a late 70's- early 80's BMW 5 series. :p

    I had some relatively nonsensical German words there (including Kraften) but then I forgot what they were. I think it was Einfluss Technik Kraften which doesn't make any sense. I found out later that ETK is a known German abbreviation for a parts catalog :cool:

    Oh cool. Got lucky with the name. I could see it as being a parts producer that wanted to build a car.

    how on earth did I foresee the word "Kraft" as the word that the K was for?
