    2011 BMW Z4

    head above rest.

    Pros: Power and handling.

    Cons: room

    BMW Z4 is hard to compar, it's just a fine engineered auto light-years ahead of the competion.

    2010 BMW M6

    Great WOW Factor !

    Pros: Handling,power and shifting

    Cons: Gas gauge moves faster than the car.

    I had a 2005 BMW 645 Coupe for 5 years and love the 6 series. Replaced it with the new M6 Competition. This car has a bottomless accelerator. Far too much power for our Canadian highway speeds. Very tempting to fly ! The POWER button can be setup with the desired ride,HP, handling ratios. Then one can always be ready to launch it when needed. Sound system, Navigation system etc are superb.The twin clutch transmission needs getting used to.I use the paddles and the gear shift lever most times.Although it has it's quirks, I still prefer the Automatic to the 7 speed manual. The V10 I hear will disappear next redesign so wanted to have it !!

    2009 BMW 328

    terrific sedan

    Pros: driving it at any speed is enjoyable

    Cons: the run-flat tires

    The 328 is a great sedan. It's quiet, quick, handles great, it's gorgeous, and is comfortable for long drives. No, it's not as fast as the 335 or the S4, but it's faster and quicker than 99% of drivers will ever need. It's also very reliable and a joy to drive. Suspension is firm but not jarring and the steering is very precise. The cockpit is attractive and the car is well-made, but without the sea of buttons and switches that some manufacturers add. I love my 328.

    2007 BMW M6

    The V-10 that sings!

    Pros: The sound and performance.

    Cons: Fuel mileage.

    Wind up this baby and listen to hear her sing! The V-10 makes a higher pitch sound unlike a V-8. Of course, the performance is also incredible. This car can be a comfortable luxury driver or, by pushing the 'Sport' button, becomes a high performance screamer. The SMG transmission takes some getting used to. However, it is quite satisfactory. The I Drive is overly complicated and you'll have to read the owners manual. Quality of the build is typical of BMW and excellent. I have several late model high performance cars including a Cadillac CTS-V and a Nissan GT-R. The BMW M6 is my first choice for driving.

    2005 BMW Z4

    Fun to drive

    Pros: Very responsive handling

    Cons: Comes with run flat tires. Rides like they are made of stone.

    It's my midlife crisis ride. 30mpg. Great sports/commuter car. Very reliable. Have not needed anything but oil changes and gas in the tank. I plan to switch to conventional tires when the runflats wear out..

    2009 BMW X5

    Won't buy again.

    Pros: I like the control panel. everything is at your fingertips

    Cons: It would be nice if the back seats reclined a little.

    This was our first (and last) bmw. After owning a 500 sl, i fell in love with the german cars. I like the fact when you touch the gas pedal the car goes and it goes fast.. smooth and comfortable ride. so when we got the X5 I was hoping for the same perfomance. The problem is when i press on the gas pedal, it stops to think, should I go now or wait a few... One time my husband almost got into an accident thinking he could quickly cross, which he did but the other car had to stop sharp. I have taken it to the dealership and they find nothing wrong with it.. I use the premium gas with no cleaners and still no performance. If I wanted a more efficient car I would have looked at others. I wanted a car with some pick up and go, not with mine. They also have a storage area under the trunk cover. You hold up the cover and their is nothing that holds into to place. Kind of hard packing things in there with one hand holding it up, kind of like you were working on under the hood and had to hold the hood while working on it.. they didn't think that one out.
