Too good? I can help you by swapping a civic for your F10

I think a lot of people in A/B can afford some of the F10s, but those will opt for cars with more of a fun factor than comfort, and not really target audience for our F10s. Like back when i was < group A, I will opt for a CLK AMG rather than a E or S And for true enthusiasts who knows their history, they SHOULD be buying up 2011 F10 528i right now, before they become the 4 banger......

Civic may be too good too.

I sometimes have to drive off road. Sort of un-paved roads, even salt water wetted roads.....

That's right. Bros switched to 5ers for their babies. The real ones.

Toyota Prado. Those are not exactly cheap. Probably more expensive than your F10

Alternatively, the MB G-Wagon

Yup. If not because we are having a baby, I would've gone for a 3er vert or a 1M...

I checked with BMW HK, you need to wait a year to get one now and that's not even guaranteed.

I can probably get it sooner, if I wanted

But I will probably just get a JB4 or Chiptech

You need a SECOND (or third or fourth, or tenth) car

Enjoy your car in NYC! I missed the days when I lived in the US and cars are only 50% of the Hong Kong price And gas is outrageously cheap

Just realized this was the Asian subforum and I'm from the other side of the world

In any case, I really do like the F10, has an awesome balance of luxory, sportiness, and fun that I was sold on. First BMW too

On the note of gas, it cost me $53 to fill up today about 10 miles after the reminder came on! Not only is she pretty, but she's good on gas!
