Mein Auto: 320d
Did see the e90 on the high road today

no cam, bad luck. It was a silver one, 320d, driving in Brussels. I had the opportunity to follow it and had a good look at it...

It was driving next to a silver e46 and I could compare. Let me ensure you that the E46 really looks dated like hell in direct confrontation with the e90. It is sleek, looks very wide and solid, looks fast and looks way beter than the e60. The car is contained and even the rear end gives it a nice stature. I'am glad that I did order it. Besides the first tests are confirming again: the e90 is the new reference amongst the sport saloons.

Guys and girls, don't hesitate, buy this car!

Please Please Please...no more Bangle Bashing.

What are the alternatives?

1. VW: Very pure German driving machines....but no bling. (These are Folk Wagons)

2. Audi: VW's that came into a little money and blew it all at Beverly Center on Prada

3. Mercedes: What your cute rich German auntie drives.

4. BMW: ART. FUTURISTIC. NO APOLOGIES REQUIRED.

Bangle isn't necessarily the problem - it's the reliability and user-friendliness. All the art and futurama in the world isn't going to help if the car is capable of crashing without even being driven!

Seems to be a missed opportunity

Wait until you can have a rendez-vous in the flesh. You'll see, it's a real looker

Yeah, judging from photos is not really the best thing, but given the way the car looks, the 'wow' factor is not there....

We'll have to wait and see I guess...
