How does an E93 not "have the gusto"? It's the same car as what you drive!
Not to sound like an old-timer, but this whole sexual insecurity thing is pretty recent. No one thought of the Austin-Healey 3000, MGA roadster, or even the Sprite/Midget as "girly cars." If you kids would hit the gym and lay off the mousse or whatever, you wouldn't live in terror of being mistaken for girls all the time. At least you could do something about it when you are.
