Cos they look great, they're fun to drive, sound great, they're not the usual humdrum and they're probably the most sporting cars in their respective categories. They carry an Italian flair that invariably leaves the Germans looking positively dull. Have you actually ever driven one?

Indeed. There's life outside overpirced, dull, overrated german cars.

Go for the T-Spark, not the JTD.

Get it in a real manual too, not a Selespeed.

Taking into account I can't drive, no I haven't..

But I'm looking at it from the thinking person's prospective.. Anyone with common sense wouldn't buy one. Not a new one anyway..

That's why we are petrolheads, we are not sensible, we don't think with the head, but rather with the heart. If you really are bothered by those issues, go on a bus...

Nicely countered. They're future classics, so keep it in good condition and it'll pay dividends!

You still don't understand what I mean do you? Did you know that the BMW 760i is one of the fastest depreciating cars in the world?

I mean which kind of cars do you like?
