Also, no wonder used F80s are cheap.

Yes, I remember the glut of those cars in the fall of 2008. Presumably production scaled way down after that.

All good looking cars. By comparison, the E90 looks a bit soft.

F80s are looking better and better...if there had been a soft convertible version, it might have lured me to upgrade.

The F80 is let down by the location of the cutline for the hood.
