Looking at some new cars and here is my short list:
BMW 330i Sedan-would like SMG with sport & cold weather package
Saab 9-5 Aero
Jaguar 3.0 X-Type w/sport package
Obviously I'm expecting everyone on this board to be biased but I'm leaning towards the 330-
As I do keep (and maintain) my autos, how has this BMW ranked, especially in terms of reliabilty and the SMG gearbox?
Thank you all!!!
The 330Ci would be more sporty especially in the manual...but the SMG in the 330i is a good choice...they are really reliable, easy to use and fast.
The 330i is very sporty and fun to drive. What would make it even better is making it an AWD....trust me and ask others how they feel about 330xi.....but I'm not sure if it comes in SMG.
BUT....the CTS and the G35 6MT are other good possibilities as well.
It is a toss up...
I wouldn't even bother with the Saab, and the Jaguars ALWAYS are very unrelaible....
