Side by side: BMW 3 Series VS Honda Accord

I agree. Hideous. Back ends are not so bad but that front end looks way too much like some sort of a cruel math problem, e.g. the two front trim bits look like a greater-than and less-than sign to...

Once upon a time the Camry was a sharp handling little car. I owned an '86 that I bought used and while it wasn't a 3-series, it was nimble and for its day pretty quick. It seemed like Toyota kinda...

Hey - a guy can fantasize, can't he? I want my lime green M3 with a manual. Mmmm. But if it fell off the M3 truck and had a DCT I guess that'd be ok too.

Nordique - I'm a bit on the reedy side so rowing in gridlock tires my weeny butt out. I do respect your viewpoint thought.

It is interesting the takes folks have here. I'm wondering if context is important. If I tracked my car I would probably want a manual, since rowing a manual when paying attention to nothing other...

Namelessman,

Where was that Costco? Just curious. I've used Costco to swap out the RFTs for non-RFTs on two of my last three BMWs and never had them bat an eye. Could be a-sample-size-of-two...

Reuters started reporting about 5 hours ago the suspension of two engineers. Owing to a buggy iPad and sheer laziness (yawn) I have not been able to pull up the article so TIFWIW.

Shadowyman - you've been 163 mph on that stretch of I5? Dang, maybe you were in that AMG that nearly rear ended me while I was going 90 in the fast lane. That is honestly why I hit 135 mph there - I...

Old age is tough. Now I'm thinking that there are only three lanes, not four. Damn.

Makes sense to me. I crossed shopped both before I went 328i. I like the look of the Accord Sport and that V6 is sweet. I did not dig the handling which killed the Accord for me.
