I just upgraded from a '96 Camaro to an '04 BMW 325i. I had planned on
doing this about 10 months from now, but the move was hastened with
the help of a drunk driver plowing head-on to a tow truck, which then
plowed head-on into my parked car, which then plowed head-on into the
car parked in front of me. Totaled! At least I wasn't in it, I guess.


I think there are a few more than 415 in the US, but I'm still happy.
