All y'all hackling over politics, how bad retail is, and job shortage, y'all are seriously boring.

However, I do find BMW's preowned campaign brilliant!! :love:

Buying one of the worst depreciating asset is not wise.

I'd stick with a used Honda or Toyota for reliability

My whole family has always driven Fords, and we've never had any major problems with them (one or two minor recalls over the years maybe).
I'm still driving my grandfathers 99 windstar, my cousin is driving an almost identical model, my dad has always had an f-1or250, my mom had a taurus when we lived in the city, but since they've moved out to the sticks she's had an explorer and escape. From our experiences, they're good vehicles (and to drag in the politics from the other threads, its an american company).

So if I buy a new BMW, will it scream in pain the first time I put the key in the ignition and awkwardly cry for 30 minutes after I'm done with my first drive?

Depends on how used it is. It may have a loose suspension, give you nothing but trouble, and leave you with something you hadn't expected, nor do you appreciate. Get your vehicle history with CARFAX.:smuggrin:

Love the campaign, but I'm personally more into Audi/Porsche.
I like Audi better too.

So true... German cars depreciate like there is no tomorrow.

Hey, she must be southern. Look at her teeth.
I'm going to go with European.

Am I the only one who thinks she looks like she's 15?
QFT but I think that was the point. lol

I suppose it does go with that Southern vibe lol
HEY! Be nice! Most of us have orthodontists just like you guys do! :laugh:

Ugh...Audi over BMW? Come now. And yes, Ford is the best built American car.

...but it doesn't matter, all cars are junk. I can't help it, I was a mechanic for the 6 years right out of high school at the family business. Specialized in Euro-trash, but worked on it all. My dad's wrenched all his life, my brother is a BMW Master Tech; I was bound to work in a shop sooner or later. The only way I would drive a BMW (or worse, Audi) is if I could pay someone else to work on it, because I absolutely abhor it.

But none of that matters. That's one of the most clever ads I've seen in a while.

I'm a Nissan Sentra kind of girl, myself.

My brother and his wife once bought a pre-owned BMW that was about 15 years old. They loved it, and eventually it needed a repair that would cost more than the car was worth so they traded it in.

Lol...top of the line swarovski...I guess thats what happens when you have too much money. Seriously if anyone drove that and parked it anywhere I'm pretty sure they'd be jumped, in daylight. They'd have to do what Obama does when he comes around here, close off all the roads, flanked by like a hundred motorcycles, tank like escalades, a bunch of dogs, lol

No sense causing a big scene and jumping them. Just wait til they leave and scratch at the side a little bit and send it in to Cash 4 Gold.

The only Mercedes I like more than BMWs is the SLR McLaren. Too bad I'll never make enough money to buy one. I'd have to win the lottery to buy one of those.

I'm thinking about buying a BMW when my current car gets old after I get out of pharmacy school. Is the lower price worth the troubles and difficulties of driving a preowned BMW?

Buying most foreign cars makes you an unamerican *******.

There are some exceptions. A few Mazdas are made in the US....a few Hyundais too. BMW SUV are ok for this reason, too.

I'd consider Volvos or Jaguars made from like 2003 or so until 2008 or so. They were owned by Ford at the time, so its legit.

I wouldn't mind one of those Volvo S80s with the V8 that puts out 300+ HP...those can be had for like $11k or so used at the auction...they depreciate like a bitch...nice cars, though...

I iz not an American. :smuggrin:

But, to comment on your "exceptions": Honda, Hyundai, and Mercedes all have plants down here in good ole 'Bama. However, the value is added, not in the US, but abroad.

Nazi, perhaps. Ricer, never. That car is the VW W12 Golf concept. Basically, they took parts from Volkwagen, Audi, Lamborghini, Porsche, and threw them all into this thing. 650 brake horsepower is the result.

Only problem is that it is so overpowered and light that it cannot hold traction in the slightest corner.

I already know what my next car is going to be, and it will be American.





The Cadillac CTS-V. Fastest sedan around the Nurburgring. 556 hp, 6.2 L supercharged V8. Produces 56 more hp than BMW's M5, and costs $30,000 less. Now, unless BMW comes out with something ridiculous that blows away the CTS-V, I have to go with the CTS-V.
