Do any of you folks have a preference about which year and model of car is
the flagship style that you think of when you think BMW? Which car is the
right balance of power and style and maintainability... I think that's a
word. Please list street production cars, rather than racing. I have a
personal preference, but I'd like to see what I may have missed.

Yea, the E39 is more powerful(great car), but I think the E34 style is
more of a BMW from my perspective. I also like the 5 series.
My preference is the 530-540(wish they had a 550) E34 style around the
1994-95 years. The E39 is very powerful, but you can't work on it as
easily as the E34's. I like the designs of both, but the E39 starts
looking a bit like an electric razor.
Best looking to me is the E34. Best engine for it the largest of the small
block 6 24 valve - although the older 3.5 six is great, but a little heavy
for handling balance.
E39 6 is really a better car all round, but without the looks.

That's a nice looking car. I would certainly pick that up before any 2006
model. The japanese car look with the new models make me sick. This E24
has a very aggressive overhanging nose- haven't seen it before. Very cool.
Since I acquired my first BMW years, and I do mean YEARS ago, my tastes tend
to run with models of MY era! ehehhehe You can't beat the older models for
style and downright sex-appeal. My alltime favorite is the E9
(2800CS/3.0CS). Sleek, stylish...what more could you ask for?

That is a nice car. Very Sean Connery's James Bond in style.
I'm a tad younger, so I tend to lean towards the middle of the road E34 5
series. But if I had the time/money, that car would be on
