    Is that a Carlton? Looks like one of those aussie Holden commodores or whatever.

    Do like the Carlton especially the Lotus one, but that does look tacky!

    I take it you're not a fan of BMW then?

    I like most of their older cars and a few of the new one's, what I don't like is all their pointless niche vehicles like the X6 which is neither 4x4 or coupe and is down right ugly.

    They have become extreamly greedy as a corporation and are making some horrible looking cars because they know idiots will by them because of the badge on the bonnet.

    If they cared about reputation, engineering and driving dynamics then yes they wouldn't make as much money but BMW was supposed to be about rear wheel drive, straight 6's and 50/50 weight distribution.

    Yep they used to make nice cars before, sports saloons complimented with coupes. Now they make horrible, bland 4 pot front wheel drive family boxes, yet a lot of people led by the motoring press still insist on calling them some sort upmarket premium brand, when infact they are more mainstream than Ford these days.
