Nice! Was hard to find a car for me that'll top the F10, and the Macan is really the only one that passed the test overall. Long wait but can't wait to find out how it does. :D

O/P, glad the car did its most important job.

As for safety, it's true, even 3 years is pretty significant in passive safety advancements, though I'd say that after from 2009/2010 on is when...

Yeah it's hard to find a car that beats the F10 in every which way. Impossible maybe. It's sort of the Jack of all trades in its segment. I'd say it certainly isn't a master of sportiness, but you...

Why I think the i3 will fail (at least for this round) is because for that price, even if you don't do much driving, why would you accept such lousy range. Another reason is, why does it have to look...

Isn't there a ZF8+ out now? I know some cars are using an updated version of the ZF8, unfortunate that BMW didn't put it in the facelift F10. Or if I'm not mistaken any models for that matter.
