I agree, the whole article is laced with catches aimed at preventling letters like the one I was about to write (that the 330 should have been used instead). I think they just got tired of having the BMW win and receiving all the complaints, it's been giving them a bad rep. Anyone that's experienced in those cars can read between the lines.Originally posted by RichReg@Feb 3 2004, 01:56 PM
These mag tests just take the cake.
Comparos like those are fine if you are in the market for a coffee-maker. But with a car there are so many other fine details like fun factor, everyday driveability, etc. which never gets put into the mix.
I bought my yr 2000 5-Speed 323Ci brand new for about $27,500 and I know you couldn't get the G cars for that cheap. Its just that now, the Euro's strength is killing BMW in the price department, so of course that can be used to the Japanese manufacturers' advantage in comparing the G against the 325 instead of the 330. The 330 is really the car it should go up against and C&D knows it.
