I know, I know. The Boxster in the background is much cooler. But I cannot afford to rent that, so it DOES NOT COUNT.

After giving up my A5 after three pretty happy years I wanted to see what the competition is like. And first impressions are (after only 7 miles: Avis - to office - to home) the competition is pretty flipping good.

Will be driving in the city and on British country roads (hella bumpy) and motorways (hella crowded) during a mini holiday, so hopefully I'll really get to see what the 4 series is like to live with. Will post more as we go along (including better pics than the iPhone snap above...).
