You do have to notice, however 2 things: the reviews and comparison tests are conducted by bona fide automotive enthusiasts, just like us, and BMW keeps winning these tests, time after time. All matchups, all model levels. Is there a favorable bias toward BMW? Perhaps, but more likely, BMW just builds better cars than anyone else.
Just food for thought

Get over it..
Wow, all that response from my one/two line statement above? What's the matter? Cakenedy was too much for you? Now you’re playing with some real fire, bitch. By the way, I would never become a BMW 330 hater. It’s a real car.. not some ricey, trashy, and economic-luxury car. That’s right, you got a poor’s mans BMW. How does that sit with you? Everybody knows you couldn’t afford a Bimmer. I know it, you know it, and the general public knows it. How does it feel to drive a poor mans Lexus and pretend it’s something special. You supposedly drive a lowly IS300. Wait a minute, don’t they have a 0-60 in 5 seconds? NO? 7 seconds? Oh, it’s over 7 seconds? Must suck, huh? What’s that? The magazines are just being racist? Dude, what ever helps you sleep at night. Also, pretend you some how have more money then me. If it makes you feel good, pretend I got that Hyundai that you drive on a daily basis. I’m going to prove to everyone on this board what an idiot you are. How you assume every IS300 hater is either poor or drives a Bimmer ( real car ).Originally posted by cyclops:
Oh, you totally misunderstood me. My message of course wasn't funny at all, that is more like a social problem now. You know, rich vs. poor, me vs. you in this case. I wish the society can do more to you poor, so everyone can afford to buy a IS. Too bad. I really feel bad for you poor people. In other words, whatever you call yourself is fine to me. I won't get pissed cos' you call yourself "IS hater". Cos' I know for sure you're probably calling yourself "330 hater" or "C320 hater" at other sites. Since this is the channel for you poor people to have fun, I'm not going to stop you. Please feel free to hate whatever you want, or more like hate whatever you can never afford. OK?
I'm driving my daddy's car? Even though that's not the case, at least you poor boy is smart enough to figure out that my dad can buy me a brand new IS anyday. Can your dad do the same to you? I guess that's why you call 'em bitch. [/B]
