The 1991 Subaru Legacy SS because AWD, distributor-less ignition, turbo and sexiness.

Also because I own one of the 58 imported to the U.S. with a 5mt

Original lexus rx and nissan murano. They started the trend that every automaker now follows with the almost SUV for women.

E46 because of steering feel, exterior (on some models) and interior styling. All three are still better than majority of cars today. I hate electric steering.

The E46 was in no way revolutionary. Sorry to ruin your life.

Rain sensors, DSC, and adaptive xenons were all very new at the time and still are considered "Whoa, that's cool!" technology today. You still don't see those in many cars now, except DSC.

^ They were all found on cars made much earlier than the E46. Ahead of it's time means that it has something no other car has/had at the time.

So then the only car you can name for anything technology would be either the 7 series or a class. They ALWAYS get tech first.

If the e46 is revolutionary than my Audi is the one of the most revolutionary cars ever.
