Nothing wrong with a road car on steroids - the comfort, toys and (depending on the car) stealth factor make things interesting

@ the BMW 1 series who pulled out to overtake me coming off a roundabout. Literally JUST off a roundabout. Was left behind in a very slight multijet haze.

Think wide ach kits, agressive looking body kits, and big engines squeezed into the original car.

BMW = A man's tough-as-nails hiking boots.
MERC = A pansy ass high heel.

The only BMW i will always want to own is the 8 series, still looks as good as ever today, stuff your M3's and 5's, you will never be as cool as an 8 series driver

I have voted for BM as well, we have just taken delivery of brand new Mercedes trucks at work to replace the volvo fleet. No one is happy so they must be turd, just like the build quality of todays cars
Got to agree here. I love the 8 series. The only BM I have ever liked!

So its about the ///M ones???Cause then , that counts only for the new M3..About the kits , its not like you have to have em(if you're not talking about M)..They belong to the M-looking pack , that's optional.Plus , AUDI's S-line and Merc's AMG look is just a copy of that M style idea...Anyway , don't like em either.

Audis suck mate!My father used to have an A4..You couldn't imagine.He spent about the same amount he used to buy it , in order to keep fixing the continuous trouble that was showing up.
I didn't add Audis firstly cause I wanted this to be the original BMW vs Mercedes-Benz fight and secondly because it's about RWD cars!
TT-S(I've never heard of an RS version), S3 and R8 are the only ones that are worth having.
RS4:Gets smoked by an M3 any day of the week
S5:Looks like a hillbily's car , who has just earned money from the lottery and bought it in order to ''chase'' village-girls'' with big boobs!A 335 kills it.
RS6:Ever heard of E60 M5???
S8:Come'on!!!After this , the next vehicle I should expect to see with the S sign on it is a truck or a tractor!
Q5:Good one , better than the X3 and beautiful too.I'd get a GLK.
Q7:Ugly,boat looking fake-off road for somebody who can't accept that the X5(not to mention the bad Porsche) is way better , or doesn't like the looks of it , or just wants to differ!

E60 M5? Sure i have, but gets beaten by the new RS6 avant.

Wouldnt say smoked, 'beat' is just about right and thats only in a straight line, in the corners the RS4 is well known to take the corners much better than an M3/M5

The X5 isnt way better than the Q7 -They are both as bad as one another, they are both terrible!

X5 isnt as practical as a Q7 for a start as they only make a 5 seater X5 and the Q7 can allow 7, neither offer a 4x4 tyre in the range which means both are obviously out of their depth on a 4x4 course

Thanks for the link mate!That's the most fabulous TT I've ever seen(except for that rear wing).What do you mean at the sentence in bold?
And about the RS6 , it's a 580hp car right?Do you remember what's the engine.I think it's a V10 but can't remember it's capacity and if it has a turbo.It may be faster round the track(with 80 hp more+4 wheel drive my mother would too), but I don't believe that you buy such a car just in order to hit times!It'll never reach the driving pleasure an M5 offers..

The X5 is faster,sportier and handles better than a Q7.About the 7-seats , you're right but what's the boot size then???As for the 4x4 tyres , their both SUVs , not thoroubred off-roads which means that indeed they would fail versus say a Range.But they don't buy em to reach the mountains' peaks , they just do it for the SUV style and the fact that they do go further than a 2-wheel drive car when off-road.So , since the X5 handles better inroad , I take it as a better car.
M3:I used the word "smoke" in order to emphasize.They're both 420hp cars with the R being 4-wheel drive , how could it ever get smoked??But , what about engine technology?Notice that AUDI needs 4.2 litres while BMW takes 4 inorder to produce same power , with the BMW engine being one the best ever built!!And it beats the RS everywhere.A racer with an M3 will get it through the corner faster than the RS.I wouldn't-I'd end up at a field possibly!
