To clarify we're talking best for you and not following some top ten cars of all time table. We all define best differently so if you were driving a souped up Thunderbird, Alcamino or, BMW ZHP then say whatever it was... and why.

So it's about best in your opinion/best for you. Someone might say it's their Hellcat... another might say it's their Chevy LS4 they transplanted into their Acura... anything goes.

My all time favorite was hands down my '10 X6 50i. It was a freakin beast. The exhaust note was a growling gurgle that turned everyone's head. I did performance center delivery and was amazed at the handling on the mini road course. And those seats

09’ 1er with mt is truly the best car I’ve ever had. I’ll get to my destination and step out and as I lock up I can be heard saying “fucking awesome”.

That's a tough question. I really liked my Volvo V70 AWD wagon. It was a very comfortable tank, got reasonable fuel mileage and could haul a ton of shit. Then there's my first car a 69 Firebird, I had some serious fun in that car.....I was 16, if you know what I mean.

I do love my 993, and the Z4MC was pretty sweet too.....

Two completely different ends of the spectrum, but it's probably a toss-up between my 67 Camaro and 59 VW Baja Bug.

They were both a blast, but in completely different ways!

Not to be pedantic, but my answer would depend on how "best" car is defined.

There is the fastest one. The best handling. The most expensive. The one most coveted by others. The most collectible. The favorite. The most sentimental attachment. The one that I would buy back. Etc., etc.

Each one was the best at something, except for a Ford Pinto that somebody once gave me as a joke.

E60 M5 - wasn't the best handling car but when you took it to 8250 rpms it sounded like a racecar, and the way it pulled above 100mph was addicting to say the least.

The S85 engine was developed after BMW's involvement in F1 was it not?
