I think the G20 looks a lot like a Lexus IS from the rear, but as an overall package it's a good looking car IMO. I think the G30 is the sweet spot for sedans in the BMW line up right now, but I'm a...

Doesn't do it for me. Tried it.

Wow, in 35 or so years of driving, I've never gotten more than mid 30k miles out of any tire.
