I would like to say one thing to all the people, except the former Honda PR guy, and that one thing would be "get a life". Everyone loves a car for their own reasons. I have owned both BMWs and Hondas. One make with "heritage" and one without. Both were great cars. In my opinion, the Italians make works of art. The Germans make works of engineering. The Japanese make copies of both. There are more important things to think about than whether one car is better than the other. Those chatting about "heritage" probably mean that Japanese cars are not "European". This seems to be a form of subtle racism. Maybe the people harping on "heritage" are not racists. But if a car is great, its great. No matter who makes it. The only cars I dislike are the redneck cars (i.e. Corvettes, Vipers, Camaro, TransAm, Mustang, etc.).
