I also have driven the M45 and I love the way it drives, and also the equipment
it comes with. But it is butt ugly, and
that is the reason I would not buy it. But, the 2006 <possibly 2005> M45 is a
beauty. It was shown at the Tokyo auto
show this year and it is the Fuga. That is the model they will be bringing
stateside. If it has the same packages as the
one I test drove, I will buy it, especially if they keep it at approximately the
same price which was around $50,000.

As an Audi <2001 A6 2.7T> I really like my car, but the S4 is too small, plus I
would rather buy the BMW M3 for a
similar amount of cash. But The M45 is a mid-size, I think a little larger than
the A6, and if I were going to plunk
down 85-90 big ones, I would probably get the Merc E55 AMG. Sorry Audi guys <G>

Actually, the M45 isn't selling well, so they are going for literally about
$10,000 UNDER MSRP. You could pick one up for as little as $34K. Good deal
for a near-4000 lbs luxury sedan that does 0-60 in 5.8 seconds. (Motor Trend)
As I have stated in a previous post, I drove the M45 and it is impressive, but
butt ugly. The new M45 <Fuga> shown at
the Geneva auto show hopefully will be here as a 2006 model or maybe even a 2005
model. If you have seen pictures of the
Fuga, I would guess that it is a lot more attractive than the prior one. I will
certainly give it a look once it arrives
because if it has all of the options that were available on the 2003 model I
drove, than I would be very inclined to

The Old Continent is for us an establishment, and has been called so since

The Old Country is how the first immigrants to the US used to call the
country of origin of their much beloved ancestors.
But I have yet to see any serious Atlas that refers to any "new europe"?=?
However, I think we should follow your example on how united you guys stand.
You know it's never been easy for the different countries in Europe to reach
agreement on much. The Euro is probably a strong case of an exception.
TBH, go and take a look. I haven't, but I'd reached the same decision with
the old-model BMW 3-series Compact.
Then I saw one.. and then bought one
It "kinda" helped that it was about GBP 3500 cheaper than a saloon of the
same performance ($6500). Took me a few seconds to even recognise it, in the
flesh, when I first saw it at Brussels airport.
OTOH, a bad case of the uglies can often hit the resale value..
