      We're on the same page (aside from maybe Audi).




      Miss the days of the E46 and E39.

      While not as bad as before and as some others, BMW keeps adding unnecessary complexity to the shape of...

      The latest CUE system is very much improved.


      As for the IS, this will pretty much be a redux of the 2nd F/L for the LS 460.

      Problem isn't so much BMW designers reaching back in history (re-interpreting the tall/narrow kidney grille), but the fact that they bungled the job.

      Could actually be striking if they had gotten...

      Shouldn't really have any issues mechanically (unless get unlucky) as the powertrain components are off the shelf (only thing added to the 3.8L was the atkinson cycle); would be more worried about...

      While the new beaver grille is an homage to the past, the designers could have done a better job w/ the shape and proportions.

      That greenhouse w/ that rear-quarter window doesn't look like a BMW....

      ^ Yeah, that's unfortunate (why do designers like to over-complicate things?).

      A lot of people seem to prefer the new front clip, but not so sure (probably will have to see it in the flesh to make...

      Even if we have seen the last days of a RWD G/Q50/60, really not much will change w/ Infiniti as pretty much everything was already FWD or BoF SUV Nissan-based w/ the demise of the Q70 and the CUVs...

      Kinda off topic, but this track review of the KDM Avante/Elantra w/ the 1.6T and iVT should give an indication of what the next i30/i30N and Veloster/Veloster N can end up being.

      ^ Yeah, what's even more hilarious are those who are having a cow over others stating that the new S Class (up front) looks like a Hyundai or (old) Genesis and a Tesla inside.

      That has always been the case as SK has one of the largest and more profitable markets for larger lux sedans (which is why BMW built their 1st driving center in Asia in SK and not Japan or China).

      What's funny is TRS so desperate to attack Genesis that he thinks having quad DRLs (which extend all around the fender) is akin to Volvo's "hammer" DRL.

      This is actually more akin to Volvo's...

      And the current LS 500 is now way more than that.

      The delta btwn the base G80 and the base Germans is around $6k; take into account feature content/kit, the delta likely increases to around $8k.

      Good news for those who don't care for the looks of the steering wheel in the new G80.

      Honda had RWD+V8 plans for Acura, but dropped it during the Great Recession (as did Ford for Lincoln).
