There's no such thing as a problem-free car. Heck, I buy BMWs and Volkswagens and haven't run away screaming yet!

I would think you'd have no problem as long as you didn't let the bike rack or other object "hang" too far toward the rear of the car. The crossbars will be spaced correctly above the doors. Just...

You seem apprehensive about the mods, and you mentioned the ride was a bit stiff. You also said you would drive this car daily. If you want my opinion, I'd say pass on this one and look for another...

Sensatec. AKA leatherette. AKA vinyl.

I actually prefer the leatherette seats over the leather for a couple reasons. First, it's durable. You can pretty much ignore it and it will always look...

I doubt it. Not in the US at least. In Europe, you seem to be able to order everything a-la-cart. I want comfort access without leather, but there seems to be no way to get comfort access without the...

I like the back seat of the 3GT best if you want a 4-door lift-back sedan. But I like the styling of the 4GC better, given the sacrifice you must make in rear seat headroom and rearward visibility....

More often than not, my Carbon Black M3 looks black. Only in very bright sunlight does it pop blue. I kind of with it was slightly less dark.

Why not consider the F31 sport wagon? You get the same size car and chassis as the sedan, plus you have a ton of space for kid stuff (toys, bags, strollers, etc.) in the back. IMO, it's a great...

New cars are all coming with active sound, which is some form of amplification of the natural exhaust note. (aka, not artificially simulated noise.)

The 4GC rear seat should be the same size as the 3 sedan and 3 wagon. The difference is in the sleek roof/greenhouse which will affect headroom and rear visibility.

So does that mean a Joe Blow like me can't get those deals, and only employees of the dealership can (if so, thanks for teasing us! :mad:)? Also, all of my other questions still remain.
