Goodbye E90...indeed you served me well.

I took the dive, suffered a big loss for trading in my 2010 E90 328i/Navi with 31k miles for the little ride comfort of the 2015 EX-L, V6/Navi accord has to offer to my wife with bad back. She claimed her brand new C250 Sporty ride is even worse.

So what convinced me to get rid of my E90?
1. I hate the stock Halogen headlights and reading from this forum, it would prolly cost me an arm and leg to replace them with xenon type, plus coding.
2. I have been wanting to mod the exhaust to dual or perhaps quad tips to make the look symmetrical. But then again, I could not justify the cost.
3. No spare tire, bummer!
4. Another member posted on here somewhere that the Accord V6, 278hp will smoke the 328i...WRONG, you got me
The pulls and acceleration of the V6 Accord does not even come close to 328i, at least in my experience.

I am still grieving while wife is celebrating and enjoying her new ride with all the bells and whistles on it. But I have no regrets, as long as wife is happy.

BMW will still be on the list for my next purchase.

I myself was in the same situation this weekend. The wife hated my BMW. I loved my BMW. It is now on the used car lot and I have an Infiniti Q50 in the garage. A lifeless car compared to my 335.

Ya'll need better wives/girlfriends. Even though mine isn't really "into" cars, she still a) respects the engineering/performance of the BMW, b) respects the fact that I bust ass to afford a decent car, and c) doesn't drag me around by my balls telling me what I can and cannot do with my own money.

Never rode in a 328 but I'm surprised an accord has a smoother ride, I've been in all accords, every generation and they all ride pretty harsh and its loud in the cabin.

My FIL has a 2009, maybe the brand new ones are better though its the same gen.

Mine doesn't either but like another one said.. They are happy for that moment and that's it.. Lol I would rather be with someone who is like that than someone who is completely passive about everything..

There is absolutely no chance my wife would ever want to drive my car, which is exactly the same as the chance that I'd ever want to drive her car. So it works out just fine.

(We both own stock in Honda, thanks for the business!)

Listen guys, if you find women so unhappy, tiresome, and a pain to live with, do what your instincts suggest, and go gay.

Trust me, you'll be happier once you come to terms with your homosexuality, as will the women you have tormented for not being good enough for you during your repressed years.

So what you're saying is you're OK with not calling your wife out on things and she has you by the balls?
