in Portugal, of course! Nice car. I have to admit the Italians do make a very nice car, and if they were sold in America and had slightly better reliablilty I might have considered one for myself! The style is nice (It does look Camry like in photos, but it does look better in person)

The V6 model is very nice. We drove a Diesel model, I can't remember the engine it had, it was a 2.4L I think. We then drove a E46 320d and clearly the BMW was the better choice. BMW's diesels are revolutionary, great fuel economy, nice power output and very little "diesel smell".

If they sold this car in America, BMW would hav a very close competitor. It is a very sport-oriented car, and is much more of an E46 competitor than the A4.
