Oh Noes!! 3-cylinder 3-series?



Right now I'm test driving the 528i and the fact it has a 4-banger turbo under the hood is a real head-shaker but now the 3er might be going the way of the Firefly!

Stupid global warming.

Now I know why you are such a bitter, miserable individual. No one should [i]ever, /I] be subjected to driving a firefly.
