It is, but if you live at altitude like I do, the smaller turbo engines definitely feel faster, all else constant. It's a worthwhile compromise.

Confirmed; I had a 2005 E60 and it moved after the first few minutes of driving. If my F10 has anything similar I haven't noticed it.

The BMW CPO warranty is wonderful, no doubt - but it does add $2000 to $3000 on top of what would otherwise be the market value of a used BMW.

Just keeping it real; I'm usually a...

That is a fair point, but to the extent that it's true we are all in trouble. Take a look at what Mercedes and Volvo in particular are doing with power output from 4 cylinder engines.

This still happens. When I traded my E60 on my F10 in August 2013, I had to walk by my parked E60 in order to get to the F10 I'd just bought. I was a little sad looking at the E60 I'd probably...

I've got a 2004 Explorer right now. I've had it since 2008, and for about 50,000 miles. It's given me no more trouble than any car I've owned since the 80s.

I paid $54,200 for my E53 in 2001, which was close to MSRP because they were brand new at the time.

That was a 225hp I6 model, it was simple by current standards and rather underpowered. But I...

Sounds like you had a poor experience. Your assertion is that Ford has not improved overall vehicle reliability since the 1970s?

That is indeed the reason I bought my E53 and my E60; both delivered. My F10 has not. It is, more or less, a Lexus.

Anyone Cross-Shop the 2015 Ford Edge?

Heresy, I realize. But hear me out.

The Edge just got a redesign and the 2015s hit the dealers a few months ago. They are a little larger than the previous model and weigh 3900 pounds, which is...

A lot of creaking is the result of flex around the door panels, and it gets worse when the rubber surrounds get dry. My E60 was a creak monster.

Though empirically in my neck of the woods it seems like Audi sells fewer S4s than BMW sells 335s. I see more Audis than BMWs, frankly, but almost all of the Audis are A4s.

Actually that is Minneapolis. In Denver it snows, then immediately thaws and the resulting muck splatters on all cars, making every car the same poopy shade of brown. :)
