    lol good point!

    What I mean is that I won't not buy a car just because there is a perception that it is unreliable. I think the whole reliabliity problem is overexaggerated. I've seen Hondas and Toyotas with their fair share of problems and also domestic cars that have been problem free for 10 years.

    I'm a little late to the party, but I had to chime in here. I don't really agree with your statement about not falling for the N54. I've had my car for four years and it hasn't gone out on me yet. Also, BMW extended the warranty for the HPFP to 10 years. I don't feel that there's much to be afraid of in that regard, and I don't see the HPFP to be a deal breaker.

    Personally, I would pick up 2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe... the top end is the 348 hp 3.8L GT ($36,999).

    The Kia Optima is quite appealing if you ask me.

    Sure, it's a Kia, but they've come a long way and their offerings per $ and warranties are unmatched. Worth a look.

    While the Optima's a great car (even the previous gen was excellent with better fit & finish than the last Camry) it's nowhere near the same level as the 3 series or charger in terms of driving dynamics. It's something they admit they need to work on.

    There's nothing wrong with it being a Hyundai, but it is damn ugly.

    The third time was the charm for me. :rolleyes:

    Once it died in the parking deck at work where it had to sit until there was enough room to tow it out. The second and third time were on the interstate, once during rush hour and once while going 80MPH. Not fond of any of those memories and will never give it a chance again. That was the sole reason I traded that car.

    Also, they may have extended the warranty but AFAIK they made no changes to fix the problem... hence it just kept right on happening time after time.

    What's the point of an extended warranty if it's a known issue and you are constantly in the shops for it? That's like buying an Nvidia BGA issue laptop, and saying hurr durr warranty will fix it.
