Mein Auto: 2008 E61
Agree with KISS and also making stupid design decisions like a fuel economy gauge with no oil pressure or temp gauge? Forcing everyone to buy run flat tires with no option - when there are dozens of other performance options to choose from? Locating electronics in the lowest part of the trunk where water from clogged roof drains will collect?

However- what were the options in 2008 when I bought my car? Audi A6 or MB350 with underpowered engines and softer suspensions with less road feel? Bland boring GS?

Yeah I wished the past 4 years had been smoother- but would not take them back (too many smiles). Hope the next 4 are better (with extended warranty of course...)
