    Re: If the E46 M3's styling wasn't dated, your point

    Mercedes? Quality?

    Surely you jest. MB and quality are antonyms of late. And they know it. That's why the guy who was head of the Chrysler branch was just named head of the MB fix the mess MB has made for itself with crap quality cars. Go look at the most recent Consmer report survey results. MB and Cadillac are at the very bottom of the heap.

    A shame to, because the E Class diesel is very attractive, otherwise.

    Except for gas mileage - I reconsidered when I

    saw that, I like getting 23mpg from my 3 series doing mostly city driving.
  • 05-05-2006, 07:02 PM

    correct...the graph is not bogus.

  • 05-05-2006, 06:54 PM

    BTW, constant for Nm to kW is ~9549, not 5252

    As the scale of the graph is double for torque compared with power (400Nm on left y-axis aligns with 200kW on right y-axis), then due to the 2x multiplier, the crossing point should be 9549/2 ~4775 RPM, which is the point shown.
  • 05-05-2006, 06:26 PM

    Look again, it is in kW and Nm, not BHP & lb ft

    The US should really get with the logical SI system, not the antiquated imperial system of measurement inherited from the British, then there wouldn't be any confusion :)
  • 05-05-2006, 03:06 PM

    Bogus graph.........

    Torque = HP * RPM/5250

    That means at 5250RPM the formula reduces to:

    Torque = HP * 5250/5250
    Torque = HP * 1
    Torque = HP

    That means the two data lines would intersect at 5250, NOT at 4800 or so as depicted in the graph.

    Therefore I find the graph to be unreliable.

    Re: Sounds like we admire and likely respect the

    You didn't share too much. Seems to me that you were raised in a very good household. Nothing to be ashamed of there. My mother came to New-York in 1967 from Jamaica with 138 dollars in her pocket and two suitcases. Now she's retired and just bought a home after paying off the home that me and my 3 sisters were raised in. She's living goog along with my father and they don't have any financial problems. I just wish I were like them, when they were my age they were 8 years in on a mortgage instead of renting for 9 years like myself.

    "Judging from the salary that your father made (his whole life), owning a BMW when he was young wouldn’t have had any real impact on his current portfolio (correct me if I’m wrong). He would still have a 7 figure portfolio either way"

    Ok, I failed to clarify this in the first response. Dad wasn't born into into riches or management. That's what I meant to alude to when I said he recognizes it took a lot of hard work, such as long hours, cancelled vacations, low-man-on-the-totem-pole type positions to get to where he got. But coming from a family of little means where sometimes it was his duty to go out back and slaughter a pig so they could eat, he learned what hard work and lack of money was first hand. Yea, the last 30 years of his career were financially rewarding, but I didn't mean to imply his path was paved in gold from day one. If I said it that way I worded it poorly.

    Re: Sounds like we admire and likely respect the

    I really wasn't responding to anything you said, honest. In fact, I've read very few of the posts in this thread to tell you the truth. There was just something about what Socom said that hit a nerve and I responded in a knee jerk kind of way, and just about as soon as I hit [send] I was trying to kill the browser in hopes it wouldn't post, because I shared more than I should have shared.

    So consider my post, as many of mine are, completely off-topic. Sometimes I don't follow along especially well. :)

    "Then I look the other way and I see the young guy in the BMW, living in an apartment, living payday to payday, partying at all the right places and eating at the finest restaurants. No need to worry about the bill until the credit card comes in, right? lol"

    - That's who you are comparing to your father? You ever think for one second that the "Young Guy" probably isn't an exec on the board of directors of an oil company (for all his life, like your father)? That doesn't seem like a fair comparison IMO.

    "Oil Executive... all his life."? How can you compare your father's finances with someone who will probably never earn what he has? My original comment was about the average Joe who managed to save over a million and what he had to sacrifice in order to do so, not an "Oil exec" where 7 figure portfolios are the norm. Your father didn’t have to sacrifice anything. If he did can you please tell me? Judging from the salary that your father made (his whole life), owning a BMW when he was young wouldn’t have had any real impact on his current portfolio (correct me if I’m wrong). He would still have a 7 figure portfolio either way.

    Sounds like we admire and likely respect the

    same type of person. The quiet millionaire. I don't want to sound like I'm boasting because that just sounds wrong. I am proud, extremely so, of my father. But I want to emphasize that I've never been given any special treatment and nobody ever mistook me for a rich kid. But the truth is, dad was an exec and on board of directors of oil companies all his life. Suffice to say he retired very comfortably, and yes the folks net worth is definitely into 7 digits. But while he's not stingy with money, he's frugal. They drive their cars almost until the wheels fall off, or 10 years whichever comes first. And oh yea, they're typically Americun cars save for mom's "CPO'd" Lexus. lol They live in an affluent neighborhood, but they don't have all sorts of lawn men and such always scurrying about. He still mows his own yard. He belongs to Colonial Country Club in Ft. Worth, but most of the time he prefers the muni's because that's where most of his friends like to play. He loves to fish, but he's still using the same bass boat he's had for probably the last dozen years. Etc etc. He recognizes he came from meager beginnings. He knows how hard he worked for what he's got and he recognizes that luck played as big a part in everything as effort and hard work. He's seen others squander it all away, so it helps him keep things in perspective.

    Then I look the other way and I see the young guy in the BMW, living in an apartment, living payday to payday, partying at all the right places and eating at the finest restaurants. No need to worry about the bill until the credit card comes in, right? lol

    I'm rambling again, so I'll shut up. But Socom you nailed it. Good work. I so much more admire the quiet millionaire than some idjit just trying to act the part. Superficial just doesn't wear right on me.

    Good question. My plan is to have the ability

    to retire by the time I am 60. Not realistic to do so earlier, as my youngest daughter, now 5, won't be out of college till I'm 58 or so. While I may chose to work, I'd like to have what I not so politely call "F*** You" money, meaning if I ever get too much BS I can say "FU" and walk away. More likely, I'd like to do something in retirement I want to do and not necessarily for the money. Maybe it'll be automotive related as cars are obviously a big interest for me. Ha- maybe I'll sell cars or learn to be a mechanic!

    Like many, I wasted some money when I was a kid, but have always been more responsible than not. Both my wife and I fully fund our 401ks, save/invest elsewhere as well and have a mortgage well under half our home's value. Not "bragging", since I am sure others here are doing even better, but this works for us. We try to strike a balance between saving and living, while being there for our kids. Like I said above, I could easily earn more should I work in the city, but in my profession (lawyer) that comes at a price: 70+ hour weeks and more. Not worth it. My youngest has a T-ball game tonight and I intend to be there. While I value & take pride in my career, my kids come first.

    The question is ????

    How long do you wish to continue working ? Many claim to "love" their jobs only to reply that if they won the lottery they would quit.
    Older folks who are retired love the ability to NOT work but most of the elderly are quite frugal and take more time to evaluate spending . As younger folks pehaps thry ate in fancy resturants and now they opt for an "early bird" special . Is there something to be learned by observing the acquired wisdom ? I think so.
    Perhaps a younger person simply isn't ready to tighten that spending belt . Perhaps ones emotional perceptions towards material possesions evolve with maturity .
    So yes --we can all be a "toys are us kid" for awhile but I do feel at some point we realize that saving can be as rewarding as spending. In fact --for many -- simply NOT hearing an AM wake up alarm clock combined with a larger account value might just be enough to refrain from many car purchases as well as other unnecessary luxuries .

    That's easy..

    For the most part, it's new money that buys such things, and those people usually spend as much as they make. They make lots of money, but have no net worth.

    Re: I'll give u a quick synopsis.

    "It's interesting how people with tremendous net worth don't get caught with owning expensive toys. "

    - So who's buying the Lambo's, Ferraris, Maybachs, and Multimillion dollar homes? If a person likes toys they are going to get them. It doesn't matter if they are rich or poor.
