In 2002, I did not care as much for a DD and the compromises those cars made(small back seats, bad gas mileage etc) meant less to me at 22.

At 33, I am in a different place. BMW now makes cars for me at this time in my life.

On the flip side, if I were to replace my toy and not my DD, BMW does not sell a single car I would consider.
I can actually see that. 95% of my driving is spirited. I live in the country and and tailored my commute specifically because I wanted that. If I had to drive in cities and/or sat in traffic, I'd probably want a softer car or DD duties.

But... it would likely be a benz.
