/i>just visited the tl forum, searched post over the last ten days, in the hundreds of post i searched, only two complaints about problems. and both are insignificant compared to the problems bmw owners have been complaining about. There is no question that tl is a much more reliable car. just read comsumer report.
E46 is an exellent car, probably the best engineered in its class; we all agree on that. However, for those who dont drive very aggressively/ push their car to the limit, there really is little differece in performace between tl and e46. In fact, the tl is faster and handles better compared to automatic 323i without sports package.
i love E46. the styling, the availability of manual transmission, the great handling with sports. But i have to have the most reliable car available because of my profession and where i live. if you have similar concerns as i do, i urge you to seriously consider other cars.
