Lol, the uninformed strike again... Ford never got bailed out. By the way, BMW tapped the Federal Reserve for 3.6 billion. So remind me which company got "bailed out".

Hey, I'm 30 and I know quite a bit about BMW's heritage, along with other brands as well.

Joking aside, I agree with you. It seems like teenagers are less eager to get their licenses and start driving these days because they are more interested in social networking and downloading the latest app on their phone.

I'm really starting to see how the front end is supposed to look in real life after looking at the pictures for some time. It seems like the car comes to a point that the headlights point towards in a 3D fashion that doesn't display well in photos.

That being said, I'm starting to realize just how sexy this car really is! I wish it was coming to the states, or at least, the coupe/convertible is similar to the hatchback. I love how it looks.

It's also a GREAT relief that BMW finally mastered the power steering... I sure hope they fit their new-found "formula" into the 5, 6, and 7 series so they get the same experience. That should make some people happy!!

I was coming to terms with the design of F20, now I'm seeing one of the models has white exterior accents. It's looking like a mutant Mini..

The front dash panels look a lot like 2009 imprezas, especially the drivers side...
