OP if you're comparing BMW Infiniti, et all...Why not also look at Chrysler 300? I think it's a bit more stately looking than the Dodge. Also, the interior especially in the Luxury model is superb. The idea that most any high end European car is super reliable died a long time ago. That said, I love the look of the new 3 series, even if it's not quite as involving to drive as previous models. The Modern's interior is gorgeous. Not necessarily. Differences in suspension tuning, ride height, etc can transform a car's character even though they're riding on the same platform. Chrysler's made substantial improvements to all their car's suspension and steering tuning and the difference is noticeable.
