The mouse interface drove me so nuts the first time I drove one, that I couldn't figure out how to change the radio station and just frustratedly turned it all off. I'm usually very quick to adapt to...

Cars that try too desperately to be "WOW" indeed age very negatively. The F10 still looks gorgeous, the E Class, just desperate to be replaced, and admittedly failed aesthetically as it needed the...

BMW 2014 sales breakdown

Also, even if paltry, the 5 GT sales count toward the F10 gen sales while the E60 only had itself and the Wagon version.

704 will definitely feel stiffer and sportier. If the 650 was too stiff, and the base 5 Series suspension too soft, then 704 might be your perfect middle ground.

To me, 704 is still more of a...

This is actually partially very true, but BMW does have a ton more models now than they did in 2009, so it's not really fair or realistic to expect the 5 to retain the same market share within the...

That's totally true. Sharing a platform really doesn't mean much if in some cases anything these days, aside from some basic architectural cost mitigating. Not really like the GM days of yore with a...

Of course the new gimmicky IS sells more at launch than the outgoing IS. Selling more than the previous body did 7 years ago is also par for the course for any replacement that isn't a sales dud....

This is why "aggressive" is somewhat the wrong word. What I mean is "cunning", or "defined", etc. which are all virtues that have less to do with power and more with chassis, drivetrain and actual...

Agreed. Soulless and boring, no matter how hard they try, it seems. Though the FRS looks fun. :D

NEW G11 2016 7 Series fully exposed

The LS 460 is probably the weakest car in segment I think. It was dull in '06 when it came out and still is after at least 2 major facelifts now. That's the car literally isn't near "all new", not...

Agreed. They could've sharpened up the M Sport look a tad. The side rockers are perfect, the rear I find really good, but a tweaking to make it every so slightly more aggressive without sacrificing...

I actually think it's fairly plenty powerful. Just needs to be sharper, more precise and translate it into something emotive.

The F10 is too nearly impossible a design to top. Funnily enough I think it's the front that could've used a smidge of improvement. If they made another F10 but leaned it out and subtly refined it,...
