    It's cool looking, but I don't know about 'sexiest' - seems like it doesn't have enough wheelbase to really look beautiful. It's 'cute' for now. You need about a foot to a foot and a half between the front tire and the A pillar, or the car needs to be a curvy wedge before you can call a car beautiful.

    I dont think many cars use a real leather dash anymore. Shrink and crack is just too common. You gotta remember that the windshield is acting like an oven in the sun. My 928's leather dash is a disaster, needs to be completely redone....




    It looks nice, but the rear end, looks like some gave it a kick and shortened it a foot. Needs a touch more ass.

    BMW has it an option on the 5 series and up etc.

    You can get heat reflective windows now as tint and as factory option, so it's not an issue on expensive cars.

    I've never been a big fan of the 4 door coupe, but there are a couple that have gotten my attention.

    Damn I would hate that. I think the airbag gas on my 99' A4 is gone anyway so I would not get branded if I had an accident. Nowadays all Audi's look and drive the same anyway. I see people driving in their 3.0L TDI A5 coupe everyday, I don't envy them.

    The 2007 VW GLI I drive allot airbag light is on... But I driven cars for years with no airbags and just lap belts (plastic wrapped metal steering wheels). So it does not bother me as much as it does my mother...

    I reveled in this for a few minutes yesterday. That sound is intoxicating.

    Such a shame that the driver was some heavy set kid in his 20's who wore a t-shirt, jeans, and a backwards baseball cap. And who is, apparently, a fan of littering. Fucking jersey people.

    In US do you have many people who dress nice with cars like that? I get the feeling it's almost singers, players and like that who drive those kind of cars, no?

    :fu: the 430 even in base trim is perfectly lean looking, perfectly matched to it's sound. No need to add Challenge grilles and stuff, the 430 has this perfect proportion if body panel, grille, and lighting.

    With your post I remembered the other reason why I am less interested in the MR V8 cars - lots of the world's douchebags gravitate towards them. :fu:

    Most of the time I see young douche bags, with more money then they know what to do with, driving them.

    That's what I mean you may have in US more young rich people rappers or whatever coming out from a ferrari with adidas clothes. Then a ''business man'' with a nice suit? I think the older classy people in US drive like a fine BMW or something like that?

    Because here in Sweden you often have older people who dress nice and drive nice cars as Ferrari or something like that.
