    Those god-darn 335i / 535i. 300+, twin-turbo charged, inline sixes are friggin' rockets on the road.

    If you don't believe me, test drive one. I was never a fan of the standard BMW line (always loved the M3, M5), but this new engine is really solid.

    If I can get ahold of the funds, I would be in a 535i twin-turbo anyday.

    Nope. Just a plain ole step-side pickup; probably a GMC or Chevy. But if the Ford looks better at the time, then a damn F150. I love driving trucks. :gurl:

    In terms of drive, BMW 5-series. In terms of style, nothing.

    When did BMW announce that it was going to put in the 335's turbo into a 535? Did I miss that? It would make no sense to me since it would compete with the 550 in terms of performance.

    To answer your question, probably the 300 C hemi is what I would get, staying in the same price range of course.

    Re: If you like the CTS, you'll love ______?

    I wouldn't judge all CTSs based on your 03 experience. As the first year of the car, it was buggy. My 04 had almost no problems for the 47K I owned it. I wouldn't buy an 08, but an 07 sports edition would be a great car.

    Also, check out the STS, it's a nice step up from the CTS and everything is still familiar.

    Other worthy candidates:

    - Buick LaCrosse CXS: very comfortable car with the 3.6 engine. The only drawback is that it's FWD, but it doesn't exhibit a lot of torque steer.

    - Lincoln MKZ: This is what I leased this winter when looking for an AWD lux sedan. Same size as the CTS, but more trunk and rear seat legroom. Available with cooled seats and all the options are ala carte - you don't have to buy expensive trim levels that Cadillac is so fond of.
