I don't want to beat the dead horse more but there may be more volume but is the extra space usable? For my purposes, if it doesn't fit as may golf bags as the E90, then it's a fail. Others will...

yes, miles is a factor is leasing vs. buying. I drive 12000 miles a year at most. I don't drive my car to work. As for repairs, I guess at least in my experiences, a new car has a much lower...

I said I found it laughable that one thinks of equity in a car like it's investment property. Point taken about loans - I'm a big fan of arbitrage and leverage if you know where to invest your money.

I hope no one really views buying a car as building equity - not a great rationale for buying. Cars depreciate so fast that the concept of equity in a car is laughable. I always find it funny when...

That's the part I'm not sure about yet. The new 3 has such a long hood and culminates into a sloping pointy nose. I've always liked BMWs for the flatter hoods. You tend to find more sloped hoods...
