Not that i am an owner anymore but:

11) Easy to work on
12) Fun car to drive
13) Reliable
14)The sound of the Six
15) Assuming a car in good order, looks good parked anywhere
16) Practical as a family car

Could possibly go on, this is based on my Touring which was our family sled for over 10 years and over 100,000 miles driven.

X5 V8 for thrills, CRV for chills, Range Rover P38 V8 for sooooo much aggravation...

21) the fact that they are steadily increasing in price (the good ones)
22) well built and well throughout for working on -i.e i don't have a specialist toolkit to to change a lightbulb.
23) the way it makes me feel- the roof down on a summers afternoon is hard to beat

8. like, no cat, no lamba sensor, no egr. Some do have Cats, my 1992 K 320i Cabriolet does!
Agree with the 6 cyl engines, love the auto gearboxes too.
Plug and play a great point too, added a few extras to mine.
Glovebox is shite though!
