In reality, Honda is a better engineered car with low cost maintenance, while BMW is a high end car that requires costly maintenance. Another fact is that Civic holds its value better than 540 or even 740.
We can go on and on, but working on both cars, it is more fun to work on a BMW :-)
I agree with you. Do realise the argument wasnt about comparing these 2 cars. It was a comparison of a very specific tangent. If you know about cars which im sure you do. Coming back to the subject in hand... a civic will keep up to a 540 maybe...till the 1st 100kmh after that.............cmon lol
