Brand Flame War or not, different people have different tastes. I used to own BMWs(520i, 535i, 740i, 750il, 850i), and I tell you, the most enjoyable I ever had is the 740i. It's fast, coners great, and not too big. 850i, despites its sporty sppearance, drives almost the same as the 750iL(1990). But when I got my '92 400SE, I realized that I have been such a fool getting a 850i. 400SE rides alot smooth, and corners just about the same(850i still coners better though) with Pirelli tires/18" wheel combo.
The 3-point star on the hood really show the "class". And I am totally agree with it.
As Lee stated, don't let it became another flame war. Shouldn't we be glad that we have these chances to own such nice automobiles??
