Assume that you're an executive and you fancy a "executive car" what brand would you most lean towards, I'm not wanting specific models (Like BMW 5 series) just in general. Feel free to explain why but try to where possible remove model bias

 

Me personally, either Jag or a executive Volvo

Jag/Volvo aren't executive cars to my mind.

See i like the look of a Telsa, but all electric here in teh UK isn't that good of an idea; hardly any charging points anywhere, plus the time to takes to charge

Audi. BMW drivers tend to be arrogant idiots who just got their first German car and Mercedes drivers tend to think they're too cool to follow the lines on the road.

Can't tell you how many times I've seen someone driving a 3-series that shouldn't be driving one.

Isn't that just the problem with high performance cars in general (People owning them who either shouldn't or should be paying attention), although it does always seems to be old BMW's

Eh true, but yeah, it's a lot more common with those who own an old BMW.

I personally own a X5. It is literally a much nicer version of the Ford Edge Sport that I owned prior. The only difference being the base model of it costs 15k more than the sport. Then again who buys the base model of a BWM. So after getting everything I wanted out of it... I paid a pretty substantial difference in price.. that is after talking the salesmen down about 4500 off MSRP.

Round where i grew up there were three types of people when just started driving after passing their tests

 

- Boy racers who owned things like Vaxuhal Corsa's that they trick out or ones that spent too much on a old BMW

- The "Sensible" type that got a car that will get them from A to B; car is almost always an old banger

- Women that demand to have a cutsey car so they'll go for something like a micra and put fake eyelashes on it

Unless you're a complete twat and forgot to at least plug it into the normal outlet at home after draining it Tesla has enough chargers floating around...

Super chargers do a good job, but yea they are slow... However where I live people complain about how long electrics take, yet are perfectly fine sitting at a gas pump for up to 15 minutes just to fuel up and another 5-10 minutes waiting to pay...

A few months back, I was on the freeway when this idiot in a G-series was just swerving around on the lane for no reason. Guess what? She was on her phone, when that car probably has a damn option for hands-free calling.

no god, why would I want a car made in Europe, common its American or Japanese. 

They have the issue of not enough cubic inches in the engine, try and make it up with a turbo ha.

Well for one thing American cars can't handle well; this is proven (compared to European cars anyway)

but not handling well is part of the fun, and they do if you lower them an inch or 2 and get a  nice aftermarket racing kit.

Lincoln Mark LT/Ford Platnum series

Lexus

 


On the endless quest
So far into the west
Where history and destiny collide


Your luck will last forever and
The truth will never die
The fates shall be eternal on your side
Prepare to roll the dice just one more time


With the stars in the sky our guide
Voyage ever onwards
Set a course to the other side
Of the endless oceans blue

Treasure Island
Oh, the legends told of a land of rum and plunder
Treasure Island
On a quest for gold we'll sail the seven seas
 

Pyo.

Just last week I saw a typical raging high riding pickup (around here 90+% GM) at a brand new Mustang moron wearing shades on his phone :dry: Based on what I heard I would side with the egomaniac trucker... And that's coming from a person who hates them. The police/Gov needs to really start cracking down on people using their phones... Since the early days of cellphones there have been hands free options...

But if you want handling thats why you go Japanese ;) I think the only car associated to crazy people made in Japan (or from a Japanese manufacture) is the Prius lol...
