HS is 55yrs old. I guess that the guys who have seen it all recognize a good German car when it come onto the market. My first drive of a BMW was in 1968 when my brother-in-law brought home a 2002 from Germany. I would point out that the older crew is more experienced and don't buy anymore based on the heart but on the facts and want the real deal. This car the 335d has all the right stuff, and there really is not anything like it...
