    I thought about that but the 5 series does not have the AWD option and she wont deviate from wanting AWD or 4x4
    The audi is not appealing to her either
    (she is tough that is for sure)
    She hates Mercedes Benz's ( i love the 500 SL myself)
    I even suggested a jag and she called it a toilet
    I said you ever drive one? She said no and I dont like their lines so I would never drive one
    This is going to be bad i can see it now
    I wanted her in an expedition she said too big
    Explorers she has had 2 in past 6 years and hates them now
    She loved her friends 5 series but it does not have AWD so not an option
    Hates Saab (or Slob as she calls it)
    So instead of squabbling over this I figured a 3 series XI is what she likes, Ill find out more about it
    I think their pricing is a little high but not rediculous
    35-40 is not SO bad in this day and age for a new car.
    I even suggested a used 840-850i and she did not like them either and Rear wheel drive
    so basically i need information on 330 or 328 xi
    Anyone own one?
    How does the AWD go in the white stuff?
    handle well?
    peppy or could use a thump in the ass?

    Well Jay I guess I stand corrected.
    Your TA is not exactly stock. But it you have to go around a curve the M3 will catch up reall fast!

    How about a 911 C4.

    She may even let you drive it!

    Question What???????????????????

    BMW's are great for the most part in the bad weather....we currently own three Beamers right now..... X5 / 740i / 325i
    and have had numerous in the past. NEVER any problems with the weather... (Knocking on wood) Seems foolish to me bro to spend 40g on something that you do not necessarily want, I know that you have to compromise, but come on it is not like you live in Alaska or the mountains or something.
    Buy the rear-wheel drive model of your choice give her a shovel and some traction-salt/sand and be done with it..... My .02 Bro!!!!

    P.S. If your T/A only runs 11's why is it not a daily driver????
    Just bustin' ur balls.... Bring it to the Lou and we will

    Jason -

    I had a 325 IX in the late 80's and an Audi Quattro before I moved to Florida - let me tell you that there was little or no difference in the white stuff with either car..... The AWD makes it corner on rails, but because of the lower profile tires, it didn't do too well in the snow....

    If you get the 3 series, go for the 330. Great car.

    and no.... it never ends....

    if you want speed and all wheel drive then:
    impreza wrx
    i personally think its a better car, performance wise and i believe theres an issue of motor trend that agrees with me

    but then again it has been said that the interior is not up to par, and since your wife/gf/fiance is not likely to race see prolly wants the bmw xi

    Here's a thought: buy the 330 XI and take deliver in Germany. Even after shipping you can save enough to pay for the European vacation. Spend a couple of weeks driving YOUR new car around Europe then have it shipped home. Maybe even cancel the Turks and Caicos trip in favor of a visit to the French Riviera. Just something else to think about.
