Reality took a vacation with you obviously.
BMWs are on the pinnacle of the automotive universe for a reason. Yipper wanna-bees have been swirling for years attempting to knock the champ out -- but they're nothing more than a pimple on the ass of near perfection...an annoyance.
I'll be the first to admit competition has made BMW make a better product - competition tends to force that hand. If you're after bells & whistles my friend...perhaps you should join the circus.
If you want a solid car with resale value and your pocketbook disallows the purchase of the best new or used manufactured car in the world today -- my advice to you is to stay out of the face of those of us who know better.
I'll put my STOCK M3 (ok I have a few goodies) up against any yipper mobile any day, any time, any where. When I'm through kicking your ass back over the pond and take your pink slip...perhaps the best we can do for you is affix a muffler to your voice. Thanks for the space....
