I didn't think it was worth it. But it depends on what you do. I don't listen to music much, and when my radio is on I've usually got morning or afternoon talk/traffic. I do have my iPod attached...

Get what you like, but here are my thoughts.

Sixteen months ago I was mulling the same question as you, and went with a 328i coupe in manual transmission. To me, "the ultimate driving machine" refers first and foremost to handling, not power,...

The W124 is a great automobile. I drive an '08 E92 328i, but my family has owned two W124 sedans. For four years I drove a '95 E300D which was totaled when a SOB rear-ended me at 70 MPH. It had...

I can't speak to the finance side of this deal, but I went from 10 years in Mercedes E-types (a '95 E300D and an '01 320i) because they were sturdy four door sedans that ran well. But in the back of...
