      The last time you went overseas when you arrived the place was in peace. By the time you left, war was about to break out.

      Don't do it again.

      I don't know about that it's quite good looking from the outside. I couldn't get past the dash design though.

      Yes, it is a bargain, and a pretty good one by the looks.

      Such a shame it's so terribly ugly. First Focus to get it wrong. All the rest have been pretty good I reckon.

      And it's times like this where it becomes clear that oft-criticised evolutionary teutonic design makes perfect sense.

      A lot of speculation, probably 4cylinder multi turbo BUT having the car above with a 6 who far ken knows. Only thing I would put money on is that it will be a M2.

      I luv the guards too...

      Ha!

      Actually, there are a lot of haters out there, but I dont mind the new ST. But I like the Mondeo, too. Just not as much as the new GTI.

      good pricing with 206kw lol. The standard features of the car designated for Australia include: mechanical limited-slip differential, high-performance front struts, Brembo brakes and 19-inch alloy wheels. Comfort and convenience features specified as standard are satellite navigation, Nappa leather seat trim and sports steering wheel/gear knob/headlining.

      There is one ready to go at BMW if you want one Matty. My good buddy decided to buy the M5 they had on the floor instead of picking up his M135i.

      I was more surprised by what he said about the sport auto gearbox, in that he would not have known if he wasn't told that it isn't a DCT. No wonder they charge $1k extra for the sport auto over a standard auto on a 125i.

      VXR review here.



      One question if this is priced close to 30,000 pounds in the UK as is the M135i 3 door, and Opel can flog it here for $42,990 then BMW are ripping us blind at $68k for the five door.
