Their cars are shit, Alfa's are nice, but still suffer the reliability image problems. Ferraris' are nice but too expensive. Fiats themselves are poo. Maserati are poo.

Hi VW babe, I'm not sure I quite get your point.

BMW's are rear wheel drive (for the most part! before some pedantic arse tries to explain about ix and X models :-) ) which means in the wet, or slippery conditions they can be 'fun' to handle. The back end is light, they're designed that makes them fun.

Whoever was driving when you broke your wrist either didn't know what they were doing with a RWD car, or just plain made a mistake.

I guess if you want to really see the difference then you need to go to a track and ask very nicely (and pay probably) to be taken out by a 'proper' driver :-) basically under power RWD cars should oversteer, and FWD should understeer.

Thanks for the pic, jedimario.

My guess is that it's because 19vwbabe saw kilted BMW nut's screen name and therefore decided to change the subject. vwhobo might have been sarcastic when he used the word 'geniuses' but I think that eccentric would be a fairly accurate description of 19vwbabe or how about just retarded or how about a retarded eccentric as opposed to an eccentric genius
