Love it every day! Biggest downside is every other automaker has knocked it off. But it's BMW's signature color.

I'm inferring C&D's 10 Best editors don't have the integrity, gravitas (or seriousness!) of say Nobel, Pulitzer, or the Gates Foundation. Not implying C&D doesn't take its job seriously, I'm saying...

I'm being misinterpreted here. My point is 10 Best lists should be taken with a grain of salt. They're published to sell magazines and are far from definitive. The F30 was released three ago years...

Pretty obvious C&D went out of its way to change up its list by including "fresh" models and new lines. A copycat of last year's list won't sell new mags, which in turn challenges the integrity of...

Coral works with Alpine White, blacks, silvers and grays, IMO. With other exteriors it''s a faux pas. Dakota leather is durable but its quality is questionable. Best not to draw attention to it.

My biggest objection to coupes are larger, heavier, unwieldy passenger doors, more cumbersome to open and easier to knick. Not to mention limited access to rear seats. Sure, I'd consider a GC next...

I think the driver in the Q50 commercial is a crackhead. So is the spokesman for Trivago. Perhaps they're related? :dunno:

My philosophy is I'd never want to own a car someone else farted and/or picked their nose in. I agree with @michaelschott. A new Cayman vs a new 435 is something I'd consider.

Nice wheels! If you're getting 18 MPG city in Cali I'd call that great mileage! I average 11 MPG in L.A. at an average speed of around 9 MPH in constant stop and go traffic. L.A. traffic sucks!
