I'm glad I got my M, and will likely keep it for longer than other cars. This car has the best of all worlds IMO
This was exactly my experiences at all of the BMW dealers I test drove cars from. And this is what I'm saying. BMW was trying to convince me that bigger, lighter turbo charging was the way of the future and I need to accept it. Thank GOD I did not listen either.
