Maybe it depends on how you arrive at the idea of a "good deal" for your transportation. If you were being purely rational in a value-sense, you might come up with a dollar amount that is a...

I agree with most here that adding the 4th engine choice isn't really necessary. I sure would love to see the return of the 330 though. The power gap between the 330 and 335 is consistent with BMW's...

Conjecture only: 335/330 Lineup

So this is pure conjecture, but I am just curious about the forums opinion on this:

Given that the 335i is, at a minimum, 15-25 hp/tq underrated, what do you all think about a potential 3-series...

135i Lease Rates?

Searched and couldn't find this: What are the BMWFS lease rates on the 128/135i convertibles, if any? I know there are 128i verts on the ground (saw two yesterday) and the 135i my wife has ordered is...

One more thing, for what it's worth. If we agree the 1 is only marginally smaller than the 3, and has the same suspension and engine and similar interior bits and pieces. It seems that makes a good...

I have to say, I just don't get the frequent opinion among some that the 1-series coupe is ugly. This is usually opinion given by some who claim some esoteric knowledge of automotive design. True,...

By no means do I think of the 1-series as a lesser model than the 3. It is a bit smaller, but not in a real world sense to me (especially since I'm on the tall side). I'd no more subject a close...

I agree with the OP. Laser beam headlights would be awesome.

Maybe a big spoiler too. You know, for downforce.

Sorry, that's right.

We've only had sedans so I tend to think in sedan-only terms.

The ZCW package also gives you fold-down rear seats, which I happen to like alot and is standard on an awful lot of sedans these days. For me, the stand alone cost of the heated seats and the added...

Sign me up too if BMW brought back the 330i with a ~270hp version of the normally aspirated engine. To increase the 'gap' between the 330 and 335, they could just market the 335 at hp/tq numbers...

When you look at those diagrams, the fact that BMW achieves near 50/50 weight distribution is remarkable.

Also, the front-heavy, dive tendency of the B7 Audi becomes understandable. From all...

Iversonm, when you say "straight v8's" are you referring to the 180 degree cranks that folks like Ferrari use? Just curious.
