Look at the other side of that picture... the last year they made a car it theoretically the most refined that model ever was!

I spent more in the last year on the Beemer about 2000 times what I spent on the Landy (even thought you guys think of them as lemons)
In fact, I have had 3 Honda Civics and apart from the odd wheel bearing never had a problem with any of them. I had a brake disc explode on my Integra (was a scary moment) and The Evo.... well OK the Evo was a money pit, but a more fun money pit than the BMW.

Jabber...I must say again, I told you so.

It woulda worked out great with an E39 and you wouldn't even be thinking of Jap right now. :whip:
Breaking News: Lewis Hamilton has officially overtaken The Fonz in race wins. With 88 races less. Lol (Without a specially built blown diffuser, illegal front wing, preferential treatment)

I've had a car from most of the North American car manufacturers,
and I have to agree, my Honda Fit has been the best of them all!

(i.e., Dodge Dart, Mercury Topaz, Pontiac Sunfire, Chrysler Vogageur,
and for good measure a Toyota Corolla)

I did say North American, didn't I? :P
(p.s. in all fairness to you, I've owned/driven a vehicle since 1980,
long before other manufacturers joined forces with N.A. companies...)

the 5 Series is a big car and the consumables of it (tires etc) are silly prices in the UK. Plus in the UK we get ripped of on fuel prices it is over 9USD for a Gallon US of fuel
