You mean massive body roll, a steering system that is not connected to the front wheels, and the engine note played through the speaker system?!?!?!?!

Classic antique Jaguar cars, 120s, 140s. The rest were beaters, Chevies, Jap cars.

The BMW is the best by far......

Although I've had the most problems by far with my BMW it is still my favorite vehicle ive ever owned! Sometime I jut regret straying away from ford for the reliability issues I've had with my 135

Im like you always owned Ford's until my e90. Had a few others too.

Europe
85 OPEL GSI (manual)
01 Alfa Romeo 156 (manual) (still own)
Bike
Aprilia 125 rally

U.S.
88 camaro IROC-Z (manual) 1st car
88 mustang gt
95 Grand Cherokee
96 Trans am
96 mustang lx
1997 Mercury sable lasted for ever
1999 Ford Ranger 4x4 (still own)
2002 Mustang Gt (manual)
2003 Ford Focus SVT (manual) One of the most fun and pleasing cars I ever owned.
2004 Mustang Cobra 722hp (manual)
2004 Mazda 3 sport
2007 BMW 328i Sport E90 (manual)
2012 BMW 335i F30 (still own)

Bikes
2002 Honda CBR F4i
2004 Honda RC51 1000R Nicky Hayden edition

Luckily I havent had major issues with my BMW's (fingers corssed). I love how they drive, and as an adult in my early 30's Im not in a quest for horsepower anymore, I just want refined driving pleasure now.

I do have to say the two GM products Ive owned were complete piles of sh*#!!! Ive had nothing but problems with them. They werent around for long...

Whatever my ride was, I was hooked from much too young to own a car to today. My father had a gorgeous 2800 CS in the late 70s, my stepfather started with a 728i of the first (slightly ugly) 7-series but then after a 735i landed a 12 cylinder 750iL, and so on. I had six irrelevant cars before driving the first BMW which was a 520i.

1990 Camaro RS- Tealtastic with a torn up interior.
2006 Chrysler 300C- Awesome torque and great sound! Freeway bomber for sure.
1990 FZR 1000- Old lady decided I was done riding it and turned in front of me when I was going 60mph. Done deal. I loved that bike.
2006 DRZ400SM- Canyon steed. Try me
2008 335i- Not a badge 'ho at all but the tunability of the n54 justified me rolling like a middle manager. 3 series are a dime a dozen here in OC, but that also makes them a little more invisible to the 5-0. Traded the v8 burble and i4 13k rpm scream for turbo woosh. The handling is a welcome change from the mopar sled.

No complaints.
