paragraphs from Edmunds making fun of the DUD:
While all BMWs possess the aforementioned traits, not all of them are entertaining to drive. Specifically, the four-cylinder Bimmers are real Bummers. Though not exactly slugs, anything with the 138-horsepower 1.9-liter inline four accelerates rather leisurely and gives up a large degree of powertrain refinement in the name of affordability. Buyers of such entry-level BMWs want one thing, and that's the badge on the hood.
Similarly, automatic transmissions should be avoided. Why? Those who understand the marque will instantly brand you a "wannabe," maybe even to your face if they're drunk. Wannabe the biggest wannabe of the bunch? Buy a BMW 318ti equipped with an automatic. Hell, you might as well get a Chevette!
