    ELLIPSIS 2 месяца назад @Alec W LOL I don't own a BMW. I have a Kia. But nice try trying to discredit me.

    Cameron Rose 2 месяца назад You should see the new x9 they are almost looking like a Porsche on luxury level
  • Alec W
    Alec W 2 месяца назад cheese head you’re a fucking idiot they’re moving toward luxury, and are going to a quieter car. Before they used to be way more fun car, driving only and no creature comforts on the interior. So you gotta expect it to be louder, itmakes you feel more connected with the road
  • cheese head
    cheese head 2 месяца назад (изменено) @Alec W Great what else is wrong with them they won't fix for 5 years? They probably sound quieter because they were so god awful loud before. Known issue in 2014, they just kept right on making them, noise and all until now, supposedly. Sounds like a company I want to buy from...fucking troll

    Alec W 2 месяца назад ELLIPSIS literally the likes on this comment agree man you probably own one and you’re tight you’re paying out the ass for something that ain’t that special
    ELLIPSIS 2 месяца назад Anyone who says or believes this clearly hasn't been in a late model BMW.

    Alec W 2 месяца назад cheese head you’re a fucking idiot these things are whisper quiet now a days you’re thinking of the last couple generations
  • cheese head
    cheese head 3 месяца назад Mazda LOOKS better, but the engineering is awful. Google wind noise and road noise. Also android auto doesn't allow touchscreen use.

    Alec W 3 месяца назад Mike Lesesne hey pal you just blow in from stupid town like what? How thick is your skull that you can’t comprehend anything this whole argument has been about. Guess you aren’t the sharpest knife in the drawer. Of course if it’s for free people would take the 7 series over the Kia, it’s the whole idea of perceived quality and prestige you get with something like a bmw or other expensive car. The 7 series also has the better materials over the 2 and 3 series and so on, but this whole argument was about the materials in the two and three series. But if you had to fork out the cash for one, there’s way more value in the Kia, for the price difference the BMW just isn’t worth it especially with the headache of problems it will give you. That’s the argument here, value for your money, something no bmw offers and that’s just how it is. For the smaller cars bmw offers the 2 and 3 series, the Mazda can be argued to have better materials, and it isn’t even an argument that it’s the better value, its a fact

  • Mike Lesesne
    Mike Lesesne 3 месяца назад @Jaymate kias engineering and bmws engineering aren't commensurate. So, it's no point to debate...if you asked most people if cost were no object of they could have a k9000 or a 750Li...👌
  • Jaymate
    Jaymate 3 месяца назад @Mike Lesesne Well... German cars are known for durability however with big $ and small 3 year warranty's overall, worse. If you consider with the money I have saved in 10 years I could afford a super, detail, service, wash and replace seats etc. Also, 7 year warranty but my dealer upgraded me to 10 year warranty/unlimited km for the whole car.
  • Mike Lesesne
    Mike Lesesne 3 месяца назад @Jaymate in 10 years, tell me how you're Kia interior holds up. 👌
  • Jaymate
    Jaymate 3 месяца назад (изменено) @Mike Lesesne 2018 X1 is no different from 2007 X5 interior. So bland and outdated. Not innovative or unique at all. My Kia has a nicer interior (costs half and drives better then a X1 btw). Your calling everyone haters but really going off at others and being really protective.
  • youcanrunnaked
    youcanrunnaked 3 месяца назад @John Davis: I think you got everything right except the auto trans. I found the auto in my E90 3-Series to be slow to downshift and shifts were not smooth. I did a ride-and-drive of the F30 BMW when it came out, and did not find much improvement. IMO the autos on our 2016 and 2019 Mazdas are much better.

    Greg White 3 месяца назад @Winter Fox I bought my Mazda 2 in 2012 and have had (count them) zero problems with it. Nada! Zilch!
  • Daniel Park
    Daniel Park 3 месяца назад @Mike Lesesne but this is about Mazda and bmw so that's pointless
  • Mike Lesesne
    Mike Lesesne 3 месяца назад @Daniel Park because bmw has stepped their reliability hand up to be in the top 10,that's why... And people use Honda as an exemplar bug my point is that Honda is not even in the top 10 anymore so the BMW hate can stop. Thank you and have a nice day. 👌
  • Daniel Park
    Daniel Park 3 месяца назад @Mike Lesesne why bring honda up at all? Mazda is ranked 3rd thats five ahead of bmw in case you didn't know

  • John H.
    John H. 4 месяца назад I agree the Mazda has the detail and workmanship levels above any Hyundai, the Mazda is a BMW for much less, the Hyundai not so much.
  • Tyler Beeson
    Tyler Beeson 4 месяца назад John Davis I’m a huge German car fanboy (own an 07 Merc S550. My fam household currently has three Mercedes and many family members have BMWs and VWs.) Even as a fanboy I cannot get over how nice Mazda’s are now. Their interior competes every bit with BMW, Mercedes, and Audi in the 2/3 series, A3, and A class bracket. I’ve driven many cars in that class (loaded F30 335i, my fam’s loaded C300 AMG Line, and a Cadillac ATS, etc) and this Mazda interior wouldn’t look out of place in that class whatsoever. The new 6 in signature trim is just jaw dropping inside. It is definitely as nice as a 3 series if not nicer. Side note, this interior literally annihilates the interior of the current (2014-2019) CLA Merc. Like that interior on the CLA is so bad that my mom’s base model Ford Escape runabout has a much nicer interior.
