C&D: The 10 cars that dominated the past ten 10Best lists - incl. 3-series

3 series 10 best appearances for this decade for Yahoo. check it out.
oh and they show some e39 love in there as well.

From Homepage: No car has had as much consistent appearances on Car and Driver's Top 10 Best list as the BMW 3-series, but did you know that this means that the 3-series is currently carrying a 19 year consecutive title on C&D's annual Top 10 Best List? So, naturally the 3-series makes C&D's latest 10Best of the decade list.

Decade in Review: 10Best of the Aughties
The 10 cars that dominated the past 10 10Best lists.


Nineteen eighty-three was the first year of our annual 10Best competition, in which we test the coming year’s newest metal to find the top 10 cars in the U.S. Every year, we drive thousands of miles, slurp gallons of coffee, munch hundreds of doughnuts, and get tangled in some raging arguments, all in the name of crafting another 10Best list.

Like any competition, there are rules. A changing price cap based on vehicle transaction price is the only variation each year. If a car wins the previous year, it is invited back, but all other competitors must be new or significantly altered for the coming model year. Our three main questions are: How well does a car perform its intended purpose? Is it a highly engaging, fun-to-drive vehicle within its category? And what kind of value does it represent?

We’ve compiled another 10Best list to mark the end of the decade, this time running down the cars that dominated our competition over the past 10 years. For all you Car and Driver historians out there, note that we had a five-way tie for the ninth and tenth spots, and a recount—hanging chads were detected—determined what made the cut and what didn’t among our 10Best Cars of the Decade.

BMW 3-series: 10 10Best Appearances

Ten, count ’em, ten consecutive titles from 2000 through 2009 (with another nine in a row before that). Simply slide behind the wheel of one, and you’ll understand why the 3-series is considered the benchmark entry-luxury sports coupe, sedan, wagon, and convertible.

What We Said:

“The 3-series' effortless competence also manifests itself in responsive handling, consistent and powerful brakes, and notably linear and progressive controls.” —January 2000

“For a car enthusiast, everyday drivers don’t come any better.” —January 2007

BMW has lost multiple comparos in recent times so I don't consider C&D that biased anymore.
