If i wanted to watch knobs stuff around with cars i could go out to braddon and see it live. I quite happen to like cars so all providing they are testing cars i find it intresting. I view things like destroying caravans a waste of time and lowers the tone of the show.

I always tried watching other car programs after watching top gear and i find ALL of them boring. I liked top gear's way of dissing each other and the funny comments they made. Yupe, destroying caravans and aqua mobiles are boring stuff. I'd rather they do car reviews in their silly ways.

My problem with the C class is that the 6.2 or 3 liter engine makes me lame.

I partly agree with you. You cant see top gear as a car program, it is a funny program in wich sometimes they happen to test cars.

if top gear were strictly a car program, the ratings wouldn't be that great, it would be boring and the common car illterate person wouldn't watch it. since ratings are so important, they have it this way

Considering other modenr BMWs (including mine) they actually did quite a good job with it.

Interestingly, I find the E92 very very ugly, and M3 very very good looking. The differences is vast, it felt like another car, unlike the C-class, which i can always remind myself it looks like a tarted up C200 Kompressor.

My Mercedes has a little over 18,000 miles and its been in the shop three times over the last three months, so there's NO WAY I'm saying anything nice about the C63. Which is fine because I don't like that car anyway.

The Audi is certainly the better looking one, but the M3 probably drives a little better. End of the day however I'd take the RS4.

To me it's the other way round, I think the regular Coupe is the best looking BMW currently on sale and that the M3 looks a bit OTT.

Love or hate BMW's styling, it seems that it is the popular style as of now. Just take a look at Audi's new A4. It has a crease running the length of the sides that looks very, very BMWish.

I would take the M3 out of these because I like how BMW's look and it is a better driver's car. Plus it has that nice screaming V-8.

i agree that the M3 is probably the best choice, but those AMG engines are like a riot, the problem is, as was pointed out, the tyres will not last.
