That hood gap is bugging me more and more. Too bad it wasn't left integrated with the kidney grill.

Blech. Gooseneck hinges. I didn't realize that was the price of auto opening.

The E46 cupholder is glorious. Nice and low for little spillage, dead simple rubber band holding mechanism, and the whole thing pops out for rinsing off.

Wait. Can you get it without any lines then? I'd rather pick and choose options.

I'm apprehensive about driving in Germany. Was it 'harder' so to speak?

Modern. The grainy wood looks nice. I also like lighter leathers. The lower suspension of the sport would only be annoying in the MI winters anyway.

If there's a hybrid version it'll presumably use the GM/BMW CVT. I think it's very likely the 335i will come with the 8-speed ZF. Unless they call the 340i. :rolleyes:

Put a trunk on the end, smooth out the roof-line a bit, and give us a 1-series sedan already. The 3-series is outgrowing what size car I prefer.

Look at the size of that thing! That has to be getting close to 190in in length.

Are they making room for a 1er sedan?

I prefer the leatherette too. If only they offered it in all the colors. I'd even pay $100 extra to get non-beige/black leatherette.

I sure don't. I'm just looking for neutral handling. For example, changing the tire pressure from stock 30f/36r psi to 36 all the way around improved things in my opinion.

If reliability is her number 1 concern, obviously an older Lexus would be...
