I have a 2022 M50i coming in a couple weeks. I'm curious to hear your assessment of the X6 so far. Likes and dislikes. Mine is Arctic Grey with white/blue interior and I was able to opt for the Bowers/Wilkins upgrade.

I'm coming from a 2020 FPace S. My wife decided to take the FPace so it'll stay in our family. Jag is a fun drive but infotainment is so quirky!

Mazda... i think they do a good job and don't get the recognition. They make probably the most fun to drive middle class cars and actually keep the enthusiast in the back of their mind... Rumors of the next Mazda6 are rwd w a tt engine.

I agree with everything in your second paragraph. M cars give their Porsche counterparts a good run, even though i no longer find them compelling for non-performance metrics-based reasons.

You didn’t mention which Porsches you want, but it sounds like they’re GT’s and Turbos based on the ‘2x or 3x’ comment. If you really want to experience Porsche with a BMW budget, the base Caymans and Boxsters are really, really good - although I’d get a NA flat-6 and not one of the turbo I4’s. I’d also love to recommend an old air cooled 911 but all of those are suddenly out of reach price-wise
Wow, that's one hell of a lineup! Thanks for the answer, I was trying to guess what the 4 Porsches were, as well as what other 3 would be to complete the total 7.

Ultimate dream Porsche would be a Speed Yellow 997.1 GT3, although I've always had thing for a 997.1 Turbo as well. Also a big fan of the 981 Spyder.

I agree with you about the infotainment on the Jag, a little sluggish and my screen actually went blank a couple of times and rebooted after a minute or so. Overall great car and I would still have it but plans changed. I love the X6, its fast, comfortable and the technology is pretty amazing. Mine is pretty loaded except for the Bowers and Wilkins. I bought it off the showroom and overall I cant think of anything I would change on it. Artic Grey and black interior. I'm now a big fan of BMW, again.

Amazing cars that are so fun to drive! Have had 4 9-5s and 1 Ng9-3. The 9-5 is an amazing platform for tuning!

My wife has a 2020 S too. She loves it and we're sharing it on the days that she wfh until my M5 is built. It's not bad at all, the ride is nice and it's a pleasant car to commute in. Decent power but I agree, the infotainment is terrible. It's sooo slow, feels like 2005 or something. I hear the new models are an improvement. It doesn't matter though, she wants an F-Type next.

Cool! My wife didn't like the FPace at first but after feeling the power, she changed her mind. She's really bothered by the infotainment. It is so inconsistent. Seems the software was coded, thrown out to the customers as testbed and we'll fix as we go along. PiviPro has upgraded interface and looks nice but is still buggy. U see alot of complaints on their forum for such an expensive vehicle. Still love how it drives! No issues with engine...just the infotainment. We get to enjoy both...cool by me!

My father had a 2004 9-5 back in the day. It was the first European car in our family. While I was too young to drive then, I really appreciated the Saab brand experience. Unlike the rest of GM's divisions, Saab still functioned with a decent amount of independence. I loved the interior design and little quirks like Saab night panel. The 9-3 was a real looker then and still turns my head now on the rare occasion I see one.

I really feel like Saab had the same potential for a turnaround that Volvo experienced. Under the right ownership anything is possible. GM, being the toxic company they are, would have none of it.

Props on her driving something different from the sea of German and Japanese SUVs.

FLAT 4. How embarrassing, i have no excuse. As penance, here are the pics of my Porsches that were requested :


No hate to 718 owners, I'm sure you enjoy your cars. It just isn't for me, and def wouldn't be the first Porsche I'd recommend to someone looking to experience the brand for the first time.

My dad's Macan S is just like your's but in Miami Blue. I've never seen purple, that is neat.

I pushed him hard to get a Boxster but he's a little out of shape and felt it was too difficult to get into. A Porsche sedan priced in the territory of the Macan is what he wanted, but they don't offer that, so Macan S it was.

Yeah, it would probably eat into some other unnamed brands sales too much...
