I had a 2007 Civic EX new and then went to BMW 2009 335i X-Drive. Loved the Civic, but there is simply no comparison. The Civic had good response, but the 335i is like a rocket. I drove an Accord too. The Accord was a rocket over the Civic, and also felt sturdier especially during turns. The cornering is way better in the BMW over the Civic. In the Civic, I could do up to 10MPH over the speed limit on sign posting its turn speed. Anything more, and I could be off the road. In the BMW, you can turn over 100MPH over the signs turn speed limit without issue.
In the Civic though, stopping at gas stations was like a teenager going to grandmas house. (Rarely happened.)
Is it me, or is it the Bimmer?
