Just say no to run-flats

Whatever it is, it WILL NOT have run-flats and it WILL have room for a spare. So that probably rules out BMW.

Anyone planning on moving on to another brand?
I was thinking a 135i vert. But, I think by next June BMW will have the new 2 series, which I don't like at the moment. I'll have to see what the coupe actually looks like. But, I want a vert, and I don't think the new 2 series will have a vert by next summer, or maybe they will.


My list:
Audi TT
Audi A5
BMW 3 series
Focus RS- if they do it right.
New Subaru/Toyota sport coupe- around 2600lbs! - might be too small.
E46 M3 vert - used of course-if I can find one with less than 40k miles.

WOW.
Going from a 1M to an R8. That's a huge jump in car, and money.
My economy hasn't been that great. Revenue isn't going up.
Sounds like the money is flowing down under.

Ugh.
Still don't like it.
The front end looks sooo heavy and disproportionate.
RWD BMW's looked so cool with the short overhangs. Now, they look like FWD's.

Unless they suddeny decide to go back to Form Following Function, which I highly doubt.

Most probably this route. Been a PCA member 17 years and really miss the Porsche brand. BMWCCA 15 years. Probably a 997.2 at this point, but I certainly do like the Cayman S/R too.

Likely an ED on an F31 with the N20 and a manual. If that's not available in the US, I'll probably do a Countryman S AWD with a manual, so I guess BMW wins either way.

this will most likely be my next car too unless they completely screw it up, or the 2 series is just too irresistible (highly unlikely).

Who knows, maybe something else decent will be out in 2-3 years (hah, yeah right)

E90 M3 or M5. I need to experience a proper high-revving M engine before they all turn to F/I (no offense)
