Motor Trend: Chevy Better Than BMW

+1 on there being great cars at every price point these days. For my next car I'm considering everything from a gti, to a fusion sport to a q50 with the ttv6. The Chevy ss is intriguing as well but...

Yep - I went through the same decision and opted for the msport 528 as well. Still, you could lease an msport 528 with a few options in the high 500s.

Since you are thinking of leasing another...

BMW has made a big investment in Mexico and plans to supply the next generation 3 series from there (atleast to the US). Mercedes already produced the C class in Alabama

They seem to be pretty serious about moving upmarket and taking on the...

I have a nice big scratch on my f10s hex trim (same as f30s) so not sure about better durability.

I guess I'm comparing to my old e92's hex which looked and felt substantially better.

+1

The hex trim was nicer on the e90. On the f30 it looks and feels cheaper. I'd go with brushed.

I think so. Even the sport suspension is a bit soft. The nice thing about msport on a 528 is that you get 18" instead of the 19" wheels that constantly get bent. And they're very nice looking.

I actually think the e39 and 38 interiors hold up today. I think they are better in many ways than most current BMWs.

Not a fan at all of the new C class. Too steampunkish and baroque with a thin...

The standard xenons are very good too. It's not like the f30 with standard halogens.

One other thing- the rwd 535 msport comes with the sport suspension. The 528 does not. However you can special order 704 on a 528 if...

Did test drives today

I had a 335 before my 528 as well. I don't really miss it and never feel that the 528 lacks power or underpowered. It's remarkable what they've achieved with a 4 cylinder engine. More power is always...

I'm not necessarily bothered by hard plastics per se. As long as the dash/door plastic is nicely grained and not shiny I don't care how soft it is or what it sounds like when I knock on it.

The Genesis coupe is better looking for sure. The interior is not as good.

So you are talking about actual quality vs design. My point is that the GTi has a much better looking exterior and...

The f30 dhp doesn't have active sway bars (just adaptive dampers) so it's a bit different.

But yes, your description of adaptive dampers sounds spot on.

Kind of a different segment though - wouldn't work as an only car for family that's also fun. Also, how much is a v6 Genesis? If it's around 30, id probably spend a few $ more and get a 228.
