I've driven the 650 and you don't have the same relationship with the road, plus everything is governed for you; oh and my M6 it's good looking to boot unlike the new Banglelized BMWs. The new BMWs are dummied down for the masses.

My DINAN 750iL will not only kick the crap out of the new 7 series, but unlike the new ones is gorgeous to look at.

The only newer BMW that interests me was the Z8 because of its simple use of modern technology, so I bought one. The X3, well it's a daily driver.

No offense intended, just wanting to set the record straight.
I heard the same in the ear;y 1970s from yourng turks just starting up the CCA. I felt I was not welcome. Still feel that way. And your prejudice is quite revealing. On the one hand you can't accept that the Bavaria and the 3.0CS were great cars in their time -- they were -- and yet you have a Z8, which you almost never drive, and your daily driver is an X3. There is something wrong with the picture you paint.
