I test drove both a 2006 330i (E90) and a 2006 M-B C350 Sport. I bought the Mercedes, and miss it daily. It was an eminently capable...

I like how that little splash of red picks up on the interior color when the top is down. Name the car "Red Stripe!"

Hooray, verts!

Hooray, beer!

Maybe add red brake calipers, too?

I was going to wait until my car's warranty is up (50k miles - have @ 16k presently) to supercharge. Slapping on an FI system at that point is inadvisable?

Truly stunning without going over the top - very distinctive! I generally don't like much in the way of embellishment at all - you've done it just right! It screams "expensive"! Well played!
