Much better review than the Joe Achilles review. Informative and fairer than gimmick of having a girl in the boot.

i think a lot of people still like the driving dynamics of BMW and are just not willing to take a chance elsewhere. This happens with all brands. People become brand loyal because change is hard.

The decision to purchase a car involves so many factors: price, performance, previous experience, brand loyalty, novelty effect (while the grass is not always greener on the other side) and countless other elements.

To every buyer, each element carries a different weight. To some, price is everything and Yugo did generates sales in the past.

Having a choice is an under appreciated luxury.

The new 3er's face is one only a mother could love.

And why does it appear that the front tires point inwards, towards the engine? Such a strange looking stance.

I assume the G80 will be much improved, but man, they've got no where to go but up.

I was literally about to type the exact same thing...

Not that I agree that the interior looks phenomenal, but that used to be about the 10th most important thing on the new 3er.

Audi typically rules on that realm anyway...
