And seriously, doesn't anyone go for a test drive before spending $40k+ on a car? I'm not in BJ's tax bracket... I like to know exactly what I'm getting before plunking down my $.
Of course I test drove. But one, it was an auto (wasn't expecting much from it anyway). But how long can one test drive anyway. It was day 3 or 4 of driving my car when I started realizing it was underwhelming....

Next Ride: Boxster, Z4 or SLK?
Current Ride: 2013 328i MT
