I wouldn't either, and I'm not Ferrer.
These new BMWs just seem cold, turbo or not.
I do prefer naturally aspirated engines, but I'm also getting used to the idea of turbos.

Not if you didn't know and didn't want to know about cars, which is the case with most of the buyers in this segment (let alone among A6 buyers).

And for that reason their safe choice, you don't go wrong in quality/look and the likes, and you don't have to wonder if yo are into a sporty drive or a comfy seat (stereotypes).

I'm with the Oz-lander.

It doesn't look bad at all, even if I'd have tried to design a thinner C-pillar, but then it would have been just a modern E39 (and what's wrong with that? we already have...

The tuning world is a different story though. Other than reliability, you have to wonder about the different parameters in a tuned car or a standard Porsche. Reliability, fuel consumption, emissions,...

Turbos just enhance the efficiency, it's up to them to decide to go for more power or mileage.

I saw a few x35i, a very few. Even x35d are rare though.

That said, no one would buy (over here) a 3 series with a 4.0 liter engine, M3 excluded, but 300 bhp are quite...

Also, EU is more about smaller engines than US, and a 3.7 liter over here is damn huge (despite we do get the...

Mine wasn't a comparison though, just another well executed wrong idea.

I honestly like both the finish and the proportions of the Delta, except for the front end (not only the grille).
I don't...
