i have a friend who drove an old saab for years and now she wants a new car. she had a short list (audi, infiniti, lexus, acura, bmw, etc.) and today went to the bmw dealer for a test drive. she came home totally jazzed about the handling and is in love with it.

what can i tell her (fact/evidence-based) that will convince her to at least try other cars first, if not completely change her mind about it? she found a car and driver article saying the bmw was the best compared to a lexus, an infiniti and an audi and is using that as an excuse to skip the other car tests.

Nothing wrong with a BMW, if she loves it that much, then let her buy it.

When an irrational choice leads to a rational conclusion, then where women are concerned your best to let them be.

there must be some reason not to buy them. otherwise the competition would sell zero cars...

You could say the same thing about an Audi, Infinity, Honda or Lexus.

From a purely technical stand point they all make very, very good cars.

The differences are aesthetic and personal, some people like the styling of one over the other, or how it feels when you drive it, or how the ergonomics work etc.
