To all European car fans...

Why do you love European cars?
Why would you drive one?

I understand that most people on this forum write us from states, and in these years of rebirth of American car industry in all the fields that once was reserved for European cars, why would you Americans buy European car? I admire new Ford cars, especially Mustang’s design, new Pontiacs GTO and many other (truly and completely fulfilling the meaning of the word) remakes, and tradition follows.
So, why?

I don't know, something about foriegn cars is very appealing I guess.

For years I wanted to bring one of these bad boys across the border.




I see lots of potential.

BMW is European, they generally look better, BMW is European, the autobahn has more influence on their design, BMW is European...

Atleast ChrisV is on your side lol.

I love the build quality of German cars, especially BMW's (dont get me started on why I love BMW's manuals gearboxes.....i've been through it on numerous occasions lol). The only gripe I have with BMW is the fact that these days they seem too commonplace if you know what I mean, whereas Mercedes seem to have a more luxurious feel to them and the standard spec is alot better. Even as far as older Beemers are concerned, anybody can drive an older BMW, but you still get a sort of sence of pride if you drive a slightly older Merc. Hope that all makes sense

I never even had a slightest doubt about manuals vs. automatic, because manual is the way of true drivers…

I know....but a BMW manual is a whole new ball game lol....atleast older ones were anyway. It's just the solid, precise feel the selector has. And the way you push it into reverse......really nice lol, am I sad?

Are you saying that I am not real because I drive a Camry with a auto? I am obviously a robot, or I am not driving; I am simply playing one giant video game that is called the game of "Life." Everytime I am running down a hall, I stop for a second (lag) and then fly forward a good distance simply because my connection to the world server isnt good. I do not exist.

I must admit, as soon as I can I am gonna learn how to drive a stick.
