Pardon my delayed response. I am just a transient who infrequently visits various forums.
Regarding the 09 7 series if looks could kill this one wont even kill an ameoba.
If your driving desire in life is blandness then the 09 7 series looks perfect.
It ceases to amaze me how Lexus is looking more Bangle-like and how future BMWs are looking more Camry-like. An ominious trend for BMW in my opionion but certainly not for Lexus.

I have no idea why you replied to my post from so long ago with shouts. No idea what you're talking about.

Just "upgraded" from an 02' 525 to a CPO 03' 530 with a manual transmission. Finally took your posted advice from years ago. Can't believe I missed out all those years! Incredible car with the manual tranny. Agree wholeheartedly on your thoughts on the e39 vs e60. Like the discussions on the touchscreens as well. Hopefully BMW will see the (my) light. Also think the e60 looks a little fat compared to previous models.

Finally I'm not the lone voice proclaiming the substantial differences that the 3.0 liter I6 coupled with a manual transmission make in the E39. A year or two back an E39 525iA owner told me that there was virtually no difference between his car and mine (and now yours) as far as acceleration was concerned and that I had wasted thousands of dollars paying for that "30" on the back of my car (and as such, I was a poseur). It was all I could do the keep myself from reaching through my computer and throttling him.
Congratulations on your new ride.

Interesting post. I was "shocked" at the acceleration difference between the 525iA and the 530i manual. Not even close. I did drive my brother-in-laws 530iA a few years back and could not tell a big difference between the two (525 vs 530) auto trannys. Your right, the manual really makes the difference and is very fun to drive. Clutch is perfect with regards to stiffness and response. Nice engineering by Munich.
Later, A-10 Driver

has been taking since 2002 for their styling direction their sales have been up so they must be doing something right. I see plenty of 06 3 Series in NJ.

is the bmw 7 series going to be redesigned anytime soon?
