BMW probably definately a German company.
But BMW has all the markets covered SUV's, family cars, sports cars, motorbikes, compacts, cars for younger people etc.
Plus they're a German manufactorer an should be reliable, and altho they're quite expensive brand new, they have been around long enough to be able to get hold of cheap older ones

GTR will not dominate the industry .. it might be fast but it will not sell as much because maybe it fkn costs $70k USD base???? end of story. BMW sales will skyrocket because they finally have the 1 series out!! .. 300hp stock for a low $30k USD base .. might be the cheapest BMW for the power out now .. of course toyota and honda has always been on top because they are cheaper and last long but BMW will rise =]]]

also forgot to add . .this BMW gets 25mpg!!! woooot BMW FTW ^^

Skyline GT-R, 70k for that car is cheap, compare it to like models, and you have to look at very high end Porsche, Lamborghini, and Ferrari. People already pay top dollar for the earlier model skylines, so a 2009 for 70k doesn't seem that bad to people already looking at the much older skylines, that were almost impossible to even get in the US. I also think the R will hold it's value pretty strong. The car looks like omg so freaking sweet, it doesn't get much better then that for Nissan freaks like my self!

Hey if you want a Toyota or BMW go for it, just one more person in the rear view....

The Skyline may be marked MSRP 70,000, but it's not going to sell for 70,000. You'll probably see it marked as 100,000+.

Oh of course it will. But it's still a 70k car. Heck see how much Corvette's ZR1 are going for from MSRP? Thats a 100k car right there going for over 500k, crazy rich guys. The 500k number is what the dealer here said they have already got offers on, so take that number with a grain of salt...

Still 100k for a Skyline, still a great deal, if you have the money to spend...

Lets see..we're kinda have to break it down a bit:

Sedans/ Coupes: Toyota and Honda have really been doing their homework. Like it or not we are heading to an age where practically everyone is looking for an alternative to gas or petroleum. Toyota was the even the first to introduce the term 'hybrid vehicle"..No offense to fans of other popular names such as Mercedes Benz (such as myself) but they are way behind in the loop. With their (Toyota and Honda's) innovatively designed hybrids and Electric cars...don't suprised when you'll be driving one of those babies in the future.

SUVs: Like I said earler, its all about Hybrids these days BUT the market wants SUVs that can do EVERYTHING, I think Toyota and Ford have the right idea...Honda's not quite there yet...case in point the new S-RV..the car is a hot mess. (I would still buy though..no questions asked)

Luxury: By luxury I'm talking of the likes of the Rolls Royce and such. As for as high speed luxury cars are concerned I think Lamboghini (spelling?) and Ferrari still have a firm grip on the market and I really doubt that is really going to change anytime soon. As far as the non-high speed luxury cars old favorites like Rolls Royce, Bentley and Maybach are not going anyway anytime soon.

Racing: Well the Ferrari And the F1 Mclaren series have been veterans in this battle but Nissan and Honda are relatively the new kids on the block and with some impressive wins it looks liket they are here to stay.

Heavy Duty vehicles: I'll update you on that.

Yeah, Honda and Toyota have been really innovative with their hybrid vehicles.
But Honda has stopped development with their's.
With the new FCX Clarity, Honda taking steps towards more hydrogen powered vehicle, as with Chevy.
But Chevy also is coming out with the Volt...an electrically powered vehicle. But rumors are that it shall have gasoline motor assist.
I think that as of right now, with Honda's move towards hydrogen...more and more companies will abandon their hybrid plans too.
Good idea or not, I don't know...aha the next couple years in this industry is going to be a crazy one.
