    General Motoring Discussion
    Dinner the other night suddenly got a lot more interesting when a pal joining us revealed that the event occupying his time earlier in the day, was the purchase of a BMW M5 e34. As he was talking, I started to mentally dust off that generation of M5, and remembered that there’s a lot to like...

  19. BMW 3 G20 - BMW's attempt to dethrone Giulia in driving dynamics

    Alfa Giulia
    I hope it is allowed to discuss Giulia's competitors in this lounge.
