It probably is just the lighting and lousy camera, but I didn't know Byzanz could be that ugly. I've always loved it. If that was the only example of it I'd ever seen, I wouldn't care for it at all.

Im trying to convince my mom she needs an M5. She's selling her 2008 Honda Accord and wants another car for under $15,000 but for some reason won't listen to my advice to get a BMW.

Any great selling points to convince her?

It is tough to convince a non-enthusiast to buy a BMW if they are not convinced they need the comfort and/or luxury of a BMW (or similar).

It would be even harder to convince a non-enthusiast to by an M5, especially since they are super hard to come by below 15k. If she really liked the Accord, have her try out an E60 530i. The difference will be night and day, and decent(ish) ones can be had in the 15-18k range.

Well she's looking at Lexus and Mercedes. Specifically a 2004 Lexus ES330. I tried to explain that if she would just give it a chance and sit in/drive it she'd fall in love with it right away.

I'll show her the 530i and see what she thinks..
