Of course, this is an artificial and temporary situation, definitely not sustainable in the long term.

Yeah it remains a patch, like a pretext is to an uncalled-for situation.

White is NO CHARGE (except mineral white). Silver (as other metallized colors) is 550$ or so.

I love my 7-yo Alpine White. It resisted better than our 2-yo 2012 Civic.

I did not insult you or anyone, but just expressed my honest opinion on the two 328Xd I had on rental in the last month. But as they say, if you can't stand the heat of the kitchen, just get out.

I am sure that their business model wasn't meant that way. This carbon credit thing is a patch, a pretext to hide that they are not going to make money soon and completely insufficient at that.

You should take your money and RUN.

This company smells Nortel.

26B$ valuation.

The >200HP criteria is misleading. The result of this would be a car that move to 60mph is less than 7s which is usually well enough. So I would venture to say that a 184HP 320i (also a turbo BTW)...

I don't think so. Overall cost without rebates of the 320i is lower, which IS the purpose.

So the 2008 N53 has +10% more fuel consumption for +10-15% more power. Nice trade-off to me.
