      I just rented a 528i from Sixt in California to drive for a week up the Pacific Coast Highway from LA to SF. I agree the F10 chassis is better than many reviews make it out to be. The steering was...

      Our 16 year old is driving my wife's 2004 BMW X3. When she goes away to college, she'll basically inherit it. She's paying for more than half of her annual insurance by working a summer job. I...

      BMW looks great. Love the M performance parts and the color. :thumbup: Agree with you on the interior of the C Class too. I know many reviewers say it's the best interior in the class, I disagree...

      Thanks for the perspective. I've driven German sports sedans for the past 17 years, and I guess an M3 would fit the mold better than the Macan, but I really love the interior of the Macan. I...

      I am seriously considering a Macan GTS as my next daily driver (to be purchased in Spring 2017). The other car at the top of my list is the F80 M3 / M4.

      How would you compare your M3 to the...

      This.

      Two weeks ago I rented a 528i from Sixt and drove from LA to SF on the PCH. Twenty years ago, I rented a Mustang and drove from SF to LA. Same road. Both were great trips, can't go wrong....

      As for the OP's question, I agree with the consensus. If you want to be "cheap" and get a decent deal, get a three year old car with 30k miles on it.

      My wife has had our 2004 since we bought it CPO in 2006. It now has 105,000 miles on it. I'd echo the above list, exact same problems we've had, plus a bad starter motor at about 95k miles.

      This. The others aren't exactly cheap, the X1 is better (interior, driving, iDrive), and I feel the premium is worth it. That's the way all car purchases are made, if you feel the car is worth the...

      The X1 is top of the list to replace our old X3. It's a little surprising (and encouraging) how almost all reviews of the X1 are positive.

      However, I decided I have to test drive a Macan before...

      My 16 year old just got her license within the past week, and has taken our 2004 X3 to school sports practices every night this week. I can see a new car in our future very soon.

      I wonder how much work it would be for Toyota to move the rear seat back maybe 2" inches to give some semblance of rear legroom.

      The lack of practicality in the FRS would be the obvious thing...

      Have you driven the Fusion yet? Is it even on dealer lots yet? Although the Fusion Sport is interesting, I'm leaning towards an F30 (or derivative) as my next car.

      Test drive them both. The...

      I've always been a Cayman leghumper, but I've been feeling a lot less love towards them recently especially with the switch to 4 cylinders.
