I think lots of brands have something to offer, but in general, for the everyday car, I think BMW is one of the best combinations out there. The captivating aesthetic appeal, the engaging drive, and that orgasmic sound do wonders to make my 1 mile daily commute that much better!

My family doesn't like to be loyal to any car brand, we tend to try more different brands, but mostly import. I particularly like BMW, LEXUS, HONDA, MAZDA, PORSCHE, AND INFINITI. Somehow I don't like ACURA AND NISSAN although they are the same company as HONDA AND INFINITI, respectively.

I am actually a very hard core BMW fan, I still long for an 850Csi…(sighs) (well, German car fan, since I have great respect for the history of MB too), but decided this time around to go with Audi for the simple fact that I just liked the price / value ratio of an A4 2.0T to a comparably equipped 325i. However, for my next car if Audi does not decide to bring back the Audi Advantage program (which I thankfully got before they cut the program), I will get the next gen 3 (or 4, whatever BMW decides to call it) series coupe.

BTW, it’s my first post here, so….hey.

Jon.

I really like BMW and Porsche but I love Aston Martin also. I know they don't perform like Ferrari (which I like also) but I think they look beautiful and sound amazing. If I could afford it I'd buy a Vanquish S in a heartbeat.

I wouldn't turn down either, but like I said, if I had the money I'd get the vanquish. I think it'd be a better driver around town and touring and such. If I wanted a track car I'd be looking elsewhere (Porsche most likely)

Why dont u try explaining why u like all those foreign companies, besides that their cars are fast.

Obviously, YOU don't know anything about those companies aside from their "huge price tag" and that "they are fast."

That's great, so you would switch to an old Cadillac or Chevy if BMW gets stale for you? Apart from the new Z06, what are some of these original and amazing cars they produce?

And that is why the American Domestic companies continue to manufacture garbage. Because they think that they are actually doing a good job.

Again, that's great that older Maximas were compared to their contemporary BMW rivals, but what relevance does that have in this thread?

Ariel - Atom is the ultimate toy/trackday car
Ascari - S62 is used in the KZ1, enough said, it's a pretty Spartan supercar too
Aston Martin - The new AMV8 is amazing, Ulrich Bez did an awesome job
Caterham - I loved the Lotus Seven, and I like their current lineup
Ferrari, Lamborghini, Maserati - Fast, beautiful, heritage (except for Lambo's tractor heritage )
Koenigsegg - Whoops, I forgot Bugatti
Morgan - I've always liked the CLASSIC car look, and the Aero 8 has that look with modern technology
Noble - M400 is another modern supercar
Porsche - everyone knows why.
Pagani - Zonda F FTW!

And that long list was obviously exaggerated anyway, but FYL for being semi-serious.
