We're discussing this over on the BMW forums. As you may well imagine, there is some Kool-Aid induced narcosis that results in butt-hurt.

I made the point that BMW is in well-deserved last place, as Can-Am does not make a motorcycle...

My popularity is reaching an all-time low among the True Believers.

Funny how low automotive techs rate BMW.

I was visiting a friend's auto repair shop a while ago when a "German engineering" car ad was on the radio. My friend observed, "It's good that they put that message on the ads. It's sort of like the warning label on a cigarette package." :-)

I laughed when I saw the 40% failure rate on the Spyders. I was actually thinking of getting one once until I read a bunch of owner review's... Dunno if I'd take one as a gift, lol!
