Also, care to explain why Italian cars are seen a piles of unreliable shit and that's bad while the same doesn't apply to german ones?

They literally swapped the fastest shifting transmission for a shitty dct. I wouldn't call that based. They also use cvts and have transmission side timing now, lack oil dipsticks, etc.

BMW literally prides itself solely on the 80's cars which were pretty good ngl, mercedes has been blowing them out of the water before and after the 80s.
Can't even buy a turbocharged 6 cyllinder without it blowing up after 50k km LMAO

if by blowing them out of the water means driving automatic transmissions barges, then sure, you got that right

On this I got the joke but in his defense>>19561288 it took me two times on reading it to get the joke. Sarcasm is sometimes hard to understand without the voice tone of spoken language. I just quote sarcasm and people call me retarded but if I dont put them it would go over 90% of the readers heads as you have seen. Remember people are heavily invested in what they have or want and will only act on emotion and just spurt out illogical and false comments to make themselves feel better, and miss the whole point you are trying to make.

It's not that hard, autistic people hate certain brands for the stupidest reasons. Either out of plain old butthurt, like "only my car manufacturer/cars made in my country are worthy and everything else is shit", or for entirely non-car reasons, like "this group of people i don't like usually drive cars from this brand and i don't want to be associated with them, no matter how good their cars are". You know, simply being a car enthusiast is hard for some people, they have to treat it like a football game where you pick a team and die with it or they are posers who care about what others will think about their car taste instead of actually having an opinion of his own.

Aside from Ford, Subaru/Toyota, Chevy, Infiniti, Dodge. Mazda, Kia, Alfa Romeo... etc.
Hell Lexus, Mercedes-Benz and Cadillac are getting sportier while BMW continues to soften up.

The difference is the majority of BMW cars are fun/driving pleasure oriented while the rest of brands offer only a few (or one) “””sporty””” car in their entire lineup.

There isn't a single M car under 60k. The M240i is about 55k. Even the little 230i costs over 40k which is solidly in Mustang GT territory. You pay a lot for not much car, and BMW has one of the highest costs of ownership.
>>
>>19566968
M2 costs $55k
$48k gets you the M240i
Plus dont need an M car to have fun, even a base model 2 or 3 series is a fun ride.

>>
>>19566990
actually I just looked it up the M240i costs $10k less than the M2
>>
>>19566990
Why spend that kind of money when you can get a GT with a big V8? Or a Challenger/Camaro? Hell, you can get a Corvette stingray for $55k which is a much better car than an M2.
>>
>>19567007
What if you want a quality made German luxury vehicle that is actually better performing than the majority of V8 domestics including your V8 mustangs and even the new GT350?
https://youtube.com/watch?v=2JALQO7rLRw
>>
>>19566990
Guess you're in a different than mine. A base zero-options 230i is about the price of a Mustang GT with a performance pack, or a fully optioned MX-5 Club, and a good 10k over a BRZ. And the BMW is the only one on that list with an open diff. I'm sure it's a fun car, but I just don't see the value proposition.
>>
>>19567063
230i is a different car but in terms of pure performance it’s far from good value.
M2 is a different story though it is the best price/performance import on the market.

no its not, Only the M class are fun. I traded in my shitmaro with pp for a new 2018 330 series since i have a kid now and believed all the idiots at my work that all bmw were fun sport cars to drive. Now realize that the majority of people that own a non m class are just poorfags that are badgewhoring. Now they are decent cars especially if your coming from some under-powered weaboo car or vans/suv's but if you have a decent car like i used to its utter shit. Handling is floaty at best, they are light though, power is meh, car has developed rattles at 300 miles, the instrument panel is one step above the cadilalc ats-v horrible instrument cluster, steering feedback I would describe as the artificial feedback on a steering wheel from a video game, Interior leather feels weirdly fake a little bit plastic i guess. Friends cadillac has softer leather. but the center console plastic does not creak as much as the cadllac when you touch it. Anyways horrible panel gaps on the hood, doors, some weird matte plastic that bends near the rear doors, and the side skirts are wobbly/loose( took it to dealer, said that is how they are). I can keep going but it will never end, suffice it to say im miserable driving this, even my old mustang gt was funner. Will trade this car in for a M3 maybe or a cadillac v.
