and I'm slowly being seduced by this vehicle. Originally, I didn't like it because of the redesign ( Bangle). But I keep on reading good stuff about it. I guess I'll have to drive one for myself.

It's a sharp looking car. Can't wait to see them show up here in Arizona. Nice design, nice lines. That video made me want to cross the pond, rent an E90 for a week, and motor across Europe. (Oh, and stop for "boozer", every now and again. )

I've seen them here (Germany), in limited numbers. I hear that there is a BMW dealership near here that has all of the series lined up in order. I need to go out there and check it out. I'll see if I can borrow a camera for some up close and personal pics.

You Germans are so lucky....the Autobahn...the first run of all the BMW's...no gigantic soccer mom-driving SUV's in the fast lane, going below the speed limit. (I'll stop now before I go on a rant.) ghead

Once you max out a few time for long trips it gets old (and expesive), especially chipping bugs rocks out of your paint and paying $5 a gallon for gas. Its a rush the first couple of times but as you realize everyone else is doing it , it seems like 65mph until you try and stop.

Everyone should experiance it though.

We may have autobahn, but we also pay more than twice what north america pays for gas.

Forget the diesel. They pollute too much and we just have too many people that drive to drive around cars that spew out that much soot. I was going to buy a tdi until I read how bad they really are. SUVs are for people that have no self worth in general. Duh, I need the utility, they say. My ass. They are empty all the time and most any car can hold a damn soccer ball in the trunk. What a joke. Women drive them because they want to grow balls and for the power trip. SUVs will look so silly in 20 years and people will be saying how dumb people were. This is already happening.

This tells me that the Japenese are the front runners in cars. The e90 looks very Japenese to me. The rear is awful. The front is okay. The sides are very plain and look like any run of the mill car with upgraded wheels. Not impressed with the looks. Sure it gets great reviews. The e46 did and this car is pretty much the same car with a japenese look.

Enjoy,
Curt

I would disagree curt, diesal is the way to go. On the same say 10 liters of diesal i can go 35% + further then a pertol car, which means i am burining less fossil fuels also i am saving money, furthermore the diesal engine is "self lubricting" and there is less friction so it lasts longer. Want some more info on diesal google it or visit this link: http://users.vnet.net/w123d/w123d/ar.../emissions.htm

I would deffintatly trade in my 320i for a new 320d if they came out with it here. Faster and cheaper. Also i was reading somthing about bio diesal, u should check that out to.

Regards,
Sardar
