One of the main reasons I buy Saab, is the widespread functionality, compared to other brands. I KNOW that although a button may seem "cheap", Saab's will outlast the body of the car. Speaking of interior, have you seen an Audi A6 inside, small wabely (spelling!) buttons all over. And that at a price 20% above Saabs. > That's why I eventually decided to order a 2002 325xi.

What I have talking against BMW is: RWD (not yin your case - FWD), which isn't fun in our winters (Scandinavia), Quality - well maybe the interior, but I'd NEVER buy a car, where the manufacturer allows the engine to consume up to 1 liter oil every 600 miles, and still be within fac.-spec. Also, I often see bimmers smoking oil after 50,000 miles! Speaking of practicality, the interior space inside the BMW 3-series is a joke. Cheers!
