If we're merely going by "real world experiences"...

If we're merely going by "real world experiences" than Audi/VW still lose out in my book. I've yet to meet a repeat Audi/VW owner and many BMW repeat customers. As I stated before, I've known five...

I've driven the 135(auto) a few times and the only thing I didn't like was the price. I even thought it was just as much fun as my E46 M3. This is why I will be waiting for an excellent deal on a...

I live in North County but I'm up in Orange County at least twice a month and I've yet to see any 1ers on the road. I saw my first new M3 today going south on the 5 near the Carlsbad Outlet Mall.

I think the rising gas prices will switch a lot of U.S. buyers to 4 cylinder BMWs- whenever they decide to ship them out here.
