BMW look like Honda Civic??

I just got my 08 335xi last year. My wife told me my car looks like a Honda Civic (WTF). I know most cars come off the same line GMC Envoy and Trailblazer or Nissan and Infiniti. Even though you cannot compare a BMW to a Honda they do looks alike. I also noticed a comparison between a Mercedes 300 or 350 to a Honda. Is there something there??

Yeah most women are extremely ignorant when it comes to automobiles. You might as well be asking a chimp what they think. Most will see a 370z and think it's vastly superior vs. X because it "looks" faster, etc, etc.

i'd say that 1 out of 10 women can even tell one type of car from another at a glance.

mine is 1 of those 9 that points at other blue cars in the parking lot like "is this one ours?" and i'm like "are you retarded?"

You need to smoke something strong to think a 335i looks like a Honda Civic.

It's not limited to women. One of my male colleague at work (who owns an E36 328i) thought the 335i had a 3.5L engine as opposed to the 3.0L engine in the 330i.

wtf

my dad once said in the late 70s his girlfriend got into his 3 series and asked what it was.

he ended up breaking up with her. his explanation was, "son, if a girl doesn't know what a BMW is, shes got serious problems, so i dumped her. she wasn't too smart"

But still, your wife should really know better.
