I do notice that proper-named model designations are a dying practice among luxury car makers. The exception is porsche with models like the cayenne, panamera, boxster, and cayman. Lamborghini can get away with any kind of name they slap on cars. The use of animals as names is interesting. To reflect power and agility, members of the cat family are usually called in for duty. So I guess, the 3-series can be called the BMW Cougar, but oops, cougar is taken, and worse, has a different connotation these days -- might as well call it the BMW MILF. Totally made up names like Corolla, or Tuareg don't sound too enticing. LaCrosse is a funny word in Canada, according to my Canadian friends -- I don't know why :dunno:

I think the animal that best describes the 3- series is the monkey: agile, sophisticated, yet mildly annoying at times. So there you have it, if I was on the BMW board I'd rename the 328 as the BMW monkey, 335 - BMW Monkey Turbo, Vert - BMW Shirtless Monkey. ///M3 should be called the BMW Goat in honor of ///M-rated.

The five series is large, comforting, powerful, albeit a bit less agile but domesticated. So the 528 can be called the BMW Turkey, 535 - BMW Turbo Turkey, 550 - Deep Fried Turkey.

The Audis we can call the Audi Rabbit, wait, that's been taken by VW, oh wait, they're the same. Nevermind.

Any other suggestions? :dunno:

In Vega$ for me 3 Series just like Table Game...they last long and better odds.

328-Black Jack ( 50/50 chance, no brainer as long as you can count 21)
335-Holly Craps ( Due to HPFP)
Vert- Stud Poker (Arn't they all think they're such a stud in that Vert?)
///M3-Roulette ( Spin that ball baby...You like to go Fasttttttttt!!!!!!!)

I also like "table game," since for me shopping for, buying and owning one seems like a gamble with thrills and dejection, and I'm uncertain if, at the end I'm going to be kicking back, smiling and remembering the great times or wandering the street in a stupor wondering where it all went wrong. I've never been to Las Vegas, by the way.

Or we could call it "First Girlfriend," because expectations are so absurdly high it can't hope to live up to all of them and, in many ways, will make you completely redefine them and either wind up much more humble or more of an arse.

Or maybe "Tube Amplifier" because it's higher maintenance but awesome and more involving, although no one can really explain exactly why, no matter how many try.

Or "Wildebeest," only because it sounds cool.

Not only that, I also drunk-dialled. You have one awesome car, the would-be "monkey-on-steroids" 335is. Being that it's sunny outside, it may be a good idea to go out there and beat your monkey.

Wait, that didn't sound right... :tsk:

For the record, I do not have hpowders on ignore. I find his posts entertaining, despite he has a porsche 911 and no longer flogs his monkey.

That new gal can be quite the instigator. I will have to watch her more closely.

I don't have you on ignore either-that makes three of you!
