Yea, you think getting an Entry-Luxury model is a good idea at the time until you actually spend some time with it. They are not well-equipped or carry the stature of more expensive Luxury models. The manufactures make these models with the hopes of moving customers up to more expensive models as they age.

If anything, they portray the owner as someone who cares about brands and "prestige" but cannot afford to buy a real luxury car...which in my opinion is significantly more tragic than someone who does not care about the car they drive.

I could have gotten another Near-Luxury model or even a Mid-Luxury model but decided against it as they no longer appealed to me. Still holding out for a Porsche 911 though...

I rented a BMW 3 series for a weekend. I thought it drove ok but couldn't get past the fact that in order to plug anything into the cigarette lighter jack, you had to open the center console/armrest. So I plug in my Garmin and then have nowhere to put my elbows. Who would design a car like that? I know it's a small matter but drove me crazy.

I went from a Honda S2000 to an E46 330i ZHP back to an S2000. The longer I had it the more I freaking hated that BMW. Mushy suspension, loose steering, crappy shifter (compared to S2000) with an arm rest that interfered with shifting, seats designed for fatasses, and shit brakes. Not to mention getting assraped on service.

I will probably not be buying another BMW anytime soon. The E30 is still awesome, though.

Excellent!

Finally picked up my A3 in meteor gray Monday night. Ordered it back in mid-August. Haven't been able to drive it yet except back to town.

I looked long and hard for a ZHP as a daily driver / back-up track car. Eventually I bought another e30, LOL. Due to BMW's free (NO) maintenance program I will not buy a modern used BMW (you will have major money down the road at about 100k). Due to the bloated weight of the new cars and residual Bangle design I will not buy a new BMW. I am left with e30s, e28s, or e34s (the start of the plastic bits aka delaminating door cards, but still great motor and chassis).

^ Mine was CPO. Should have probably paid to extend the maintenance as well. Around 60k miles they charged me ~$500 to tell me nothing was wrong with it. A few weeks later the CEL came on; turns out one of the hoses had cracked. Real thorough inspection that $500 bought me.

Smacked up my 2008 LR3 to the tune of $6,200. I guess that is why you have insurance.

This winter she gets a new M3T spec motor, rebuilt close ratio transmission, race spec 4 clutch, asymmetric ramp angles, 3.91 racing differential, and a JRZ suspension. I am debating about the cage and racing seats but after that there is almost no chance she will ever be a street car again. I am not 100% committed to club racing maybe HPDE will be enough for me for the rest of my life, but I doubt it.

I just put in new strut tubes and adjustable Koni's (frt and back) on the iX, what an improvement over the Blilly HDs. Next step will be centered M3 control arm bushings. Tighten the old girl up a bit.
My '89 325ix was just totaled two months ago. A girl made a left into my driver's side rear quarter while I was going through an intersection on a green. It was a Japanese import with only 107K on it and had been all the rubber, electrics and mechanicals had been replaced by the previous owner. I miss my e30...

Really? They look great, sound great, but the $50K jackup from the 550 to this really not that worth it IMO.

2001 Nissan Maxima SE now. Replaced my E30.

3.0L Automatic with 17 inch rims. Nice car but the resale values on these suck.
