Fucking hell, Jalopnik. At least try to make sense...

The last time I drove the F30 BMW 3-Series, it was the top dog 335i with the sport package. I didn't love it and thought that BMW might have lost some of that sport sedan special sauce. But the baby 320i is a different story*, and it's superb.


*It's the same fucking car with a smaller engine.

On backroads it was plenty quick, and with just 18 inch wheels, it didn't have too much tire. I'm not a scientist, but lower limits on the road equals more fun.


Ugh.

That is a margin bigger than my car, and I often find myself thinking, I could use a bit more tire, so I understand the author's point. Often times in my vroom-vroom-go-fast, I need to use the foot-button to vroom-vroom harder.

No need to show me the way out, I know where it is. *quietly exits*

I used to like that site, but it's currently staffed by idiots that can barely write. I'm usually sad or annoyed when I read it now.

I can't stomach Jalopnik anymore.. In fact, it has been on a steady decline since about 2008/9 when the site was bought out. I haven't found anything I like as much since then. I tried www.hooniverse.com and www.thetruthaboutcars.com. Blah. CarThrottle has been ok, but the comment monkeys all hate Americans..

I always thought those were cool cars. Thought it would be a sweet car to do an engine swap in. The funny thing is that I was just looking at those online last night. Still gonna be quite a while till I can have a project car though.
