A couple years ago, I noticed an Oldsmobile Alero on the road in Switzerland (with Swiss plates). It's one of those moments when you scratch your head and wonder, 'What's the story behind that one?'

I can't speak for the original poster, but I think that his point was that, in terms of performance, the 228i is pretty close to the 135i. Everyone knows that the M235i is faster than the 135i, so...

Ditto.

I see a fair number of folks doing this in San Francisco. I too don't care for the look. Having an expired German tourist plate behind a CA plate just looks strange. I mean, sure, the...

The back of kief's letter had their formula for the fee... It was based on engine displacement and emissions. I'm guessing that his M4 is 'worse' than your car in terms of their formula.

I'd say that the main issue is you thinking you're going to get away with cruising home along I-80 or I-10 at autobahn speeds. Two words: speed traps. :rofl:

Alpine White is a classic BMW color and always looks good (though you do have to keep it clean). If you're not crazy about any of the other colors, I'd go with that.

Frankly, I'd rather have a better engine than std leather and a sunroof. I don't even like sunroofs.

Hard to say precisely, but my gut impression is that this vehicle is 2"-3" longer than the current 1er coupe, which would indeed bring it within in an inch or two of the e46 coupe. Maybe it just...

The 320i will be more of a boon to sales than the F32.

With a sticker starting at $33K, the 320i is a true bargain and will be flying off the lots.

I agree.

In a nutshell, no option pays for itself on resale. In other words, in 3-5 years, you're not going to get $1,200 more for your car because it has a $1,200 option. If anyone tells you...
