Jag

Yeah..Stop by Bavarian Motor Village in East Detroit 810-772-8600 and get that Jag thought out of your heads, please. They have two M3's just waiting to be gobbled up. I saw them on Friday...prefer the Red one.

Isn't the Jag really a front-wheel drive until it feels slip, at which point it will send power to the rear? The BMW is 69/32 rear/front at all times. It will drive very differently.

The jag is 40/60 rear front. I test drove an X-type two weeks ago and the steering is wonderful and the cabin w/nav is beautiful. However, unless you get the 3.0 it is a little and I mean little sluggish compared to the BMW. If where you live is anything like where I live then there are more 3 series BMWs on the road that you can count so you might be looking for something a bit different. However the 3 series always wins best in class and most of the time they deserve it.
