    as someone who used to be a hardcore BMW fan before BMW turned to shit
    i think those guys are having more fun with that BMW than a lot of people with brand new M cars

    That seriously narrows down your options xD
    But since you mention it, look for Golf V's with the 1.4 TSi engine. The 140hp version, not the 170hp (GT trim), those are known to crack heads (or at least I read some cases that that happened). Twin charged, plenty reliable, economical and you can get some decent numbers off of it if you start investing into the engine.
    But don't be fooled, the 1.4 TSi with 125hp IIRC is only turbo and not twin charged, those came in newer cars anyway, 2007 onwards.
     
    EDIT: I was forgetting about the Mercs, the Kompressor ones, but obviously they're Mercs and you know what that means maintenance pricing wise.

    Imagine appreciating something original and non digital. Or just imagine a brand actually keep something they've done for years.

    Kinda sounded like it, though ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
    And even if anybody would hate these exhausts, they're quite rare anyway.

    i mean if you are a fan of Car as a subscription then any new bmw is great for you 🙂
    Looks like they are pushing that idea a bit too much by making their cars cost a shit ton and not be that good 
    I miss the days where BMW was legitimately good ...

    I've owned a bunch of these Taurus SHOs over the years, kick ass engines that are basically bulletproof and made by Yamaha to they are finely tuned at 76 HP/Liter from the factory.

    Haha, lol 😄 Yup. Concerning design: Isn't the new BMW cooler inlet disgusting? The "BMW kidney" turned SO large, it looks like the BMW lung by now. The BMW M3/M4 has such a fucking disgusting cooler grill, I can't even.

    Yup, for new generations you have to wait a few years for them to become cheaper/level out around the same price as the predecessor. The Ford Fiesta Mk7 facelift was sold in base trim for 6990€ as well before it got replaced. Now the same base trim (with the adding of a small LED headlamp and a daytime sensor for automatically turning it on/off) can't be had for below 10k. And the new one doesn't even have a radio by default in the base trim.
