That sucks.

My experience says that European cars are a hit-or-miss when it comes to reliability. About 10 percent are lemons... I've had my share. :mad:

That sucks. Ouch.

Even the best tires out there can't handle standing water at speed - they all become water skis, sadly.

V6? ;)

The M3/M4 are lighter than the M5, so I wouldn't be surprised to see some of their acceleration numbers (between certain speeds) quicker than the M5.

She's a trooper and completely gets it (but she still doesn't understand how much guys can like cars). That said, the bed was still warm last night.
