I haven't considered the S3, so I'll will need to visit an Audi dealer before I rule anything out. The C63 lacks AWD, but the upcoming C450 AMG SPORT does have 4MATIC and it appears to have all of...

True enough.

Looks are in the eye of the beholder and I think both cars look good, so I don't think I would be giving up much there. Also, my motorhome manufacturer only makes 50 of my model per...

Thanks. I hadn't read this particular review before. Unfortunately, it reads like most every other review written by an old school BMW driver longing for his E46: AWD - bad, turbo - bad, auto - bad,...

I think the '15 Mustang has a nice overall look in a decently priced package, but I want AWD for my daily driver. That said, for the cost of a Shelby GT350, the relatively modest looking M235xi is my...

I debadged my 550 and then 650. If I get a 235 this winter, then it will loose the trunk tinsel.

Congrats MoldCAD!! I've had my eye on the M235xi. The slogan Ultimate Driving Machine comes to mind whenever I think of the 2er. :thumbup:

Agreed, S7s & S8s - no, but S4-6, and A4-7 - yes. A8s pretty much don't care, but they appear to be driven by former Lincoln owners. :rofl:

That's funny. When I drove a Merc SL, I had Bimmers challenging me all of the time, but in the 650, I only get the occasional Audi that thinks he has something to prove. :rofl:

Maybe you have a stuck open exhaust flap. Some guys will even zip-tie their flaps opens for an more aggressive exhaust note.
