Words of wisdom from Cantona7.

Personally, I also have mixed feelings about the new designs. I don't hate them but I'm not totally in love with them either. And the more I look at them, the more...

Once again, you've totally missed the point. A design does not have to be radical in order to be unique. Brands like BMW (up until 2002), Mercedes and Jaguar have traditionally used understated,...

There may be other options. Mintex (a British company) used to make low-dust pads. Not sure if they still do. Also, there is another company whose name is escaping me at the moment that manufactures...

Say what you like about the new BMW designs, but at least they are unique. You would never confuse a BMW with any other car on the road. Japanese designs, on the other hand, have become incredibly...

GX470 is a luxury version of a much cheaper vehicle (Toyota 4Runner). Clearly, it costs less to modify an existing car than to build one from the ground up, hence the price difference. GX470 is a...

X3 with Aero kit

Saw the Aero kit equipped X3 at the Toronto Autoshow today...it was standing next to the regular X3. Let me tell you, the difference in looks between the two is day and night...there's simply no...

I wasn't trying to imply that at all. However, you have to agree that there is a very strong (and I would argue irrational) anti-SUV sentiment among some members of this board, who seem to hate SUVs...

2) You complained about X3's slow acceleration, which, as you said, did not feel as fast as a manual 330i. This has nothing...

I don't think any 2001+ E46 ever came with a GM transmission. Older E39's and E38's had those, if I'm not mistaken...they were actually pretty good trannies.

Trading the Mustang towards a newer (2001+) 325/330 - sure; straight up trade for a 1998 328 - no way.
