Their new add slogan (quoted by Dave) and the "Buick" pose of the car in that add says it all. Makes me sick. Wake up BMW fans its over. What, exactly, is unique about the new 4 series? Based on looks it could be a Ford, Buick, Chrysler, Mercedes, Lincoln, Hyundai, Audi,.....(yawn) A new BMW should shout "buy me" not "I'll grow on you - keep hoping"
Not to mention that the 3-series has been beaten by a LEXUS
in a couple recent comparisons...
Interesting article recently (forget what mag) about the suspension setup of the E90 vs. the F30. It was clear that they're going for a softer, more luxurious ride. Ugh.
