BMWs R US

In our TX office this week...one of the managing directors has the brand-new M5. He did not ask me if I'd like to take it for a spin.

Another managing director asked me if I wanted to take his new F30 out for a spin. I politely declined, I'm just not into the EPS and steel subframe thing.

He asked again before dinner, so I politely accepted. I guess I could say that when you redline that thing (8-spd aut) it can be fun to drive.

I have a loaner F30 and i'm hating how it drives. Electronic steering is the worst thing ever to be put in a BMW.

Granted the engine is actually pretty peppy, but the steering sucks, the car drives like a slob and it's just so cheaply made! So sad! I've loved BMW's for so long...

The EPS definitely b****. I can't see BMW not doing something next year about it. But in TX, you can go fast, and in a straight line!

M's are sacred. The new M5 was spared the EPS. That's why I'm disappointed that SOB didn't let me drive his new car.....
