However, I can tell you when things start going south on your car, more often than not, it's time to cut it loose. My last 7 was great until a seat sensor went out, which created a replacement program of just about every component in my car--it was a nightmare. And yes, I got rid of it as soon as it came back from the shop, after six weeks total. It was a "Franken-bimmer".

The 6 is absolutely a smaller car, much smaller than my 7. That said, you need to sit in the car. I could never drive that car--way small for me. I do like it though.

Hi Adam,

I agree; I can never go smaller unless I go convertible. I need headroom for my big head.
Once you go big, you can never go back.

On another note, BMW just released NAV maps for Turkey this year. So no BMW has nav and most f10 don't even have the CIC. I had to have the nav retrofitted. Merc and Audi still don't offer maps here.
