The N54 is no less reliable than other BMW engines, the HPFP problem has been resolved a long time ago.

It's orange, hard not to give it attention. Great looking jeep.

Get the newest A6 you can for $40K. Include the B&O sound system, and you're all set.

I disagree with the A6 comments, the front "A" pillar is a pain to navigate around getting in and out. . It can't be bigger than the car you already have space issues in.

That's odd. I'm just over six foot, about 210 pounds, and have never had an issue getting in or out of an A6- of any generation. Are you trying to drive a wheelchair into the drivers' seat?

I'm only like 5'6" , so moving the seat forward puts it more into the rakish path of the A pillar. Atleast that was my guess after I cracked my head on it several times.

You're 5'6" and the A6 was tough to get in and out of cause the A pillar? Wow.

Suvs are for stupid consumers, and an M car is a maintenance/reliability nightmare. Have you looked at the Lexus IS/F?

My Ride: 2012 BMW F10
Thanks for the suggestions. Im going to end up with a 2011 BMW 535i with M package. Its a little higher then what I wanted to initially spend but its worth it IMO. Ive been doing some research on it and I believe the F10 doesnt have the hose pipe problems the earlier models had. I would love the 550i but I do alot of highway driving and the 535i is well balanced between power,luxury and better gas mileage.

http://f10.5post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=736447

That car just made me love the newer body styles!
