The Big Three German Automakers Are Becoming More & More AlikeCar & Driver #HEDRICK_MICHAELNovember 9, 2019
While we don’t like to play favorites, the company’s products used to be the encapsulation of everything we loved about the sports sedan.
In the 2er lineup, the appeal of the M240i and M2 in particular remains compelling.
The similarities between the models get close to confusing; both wear M badges, although the M240i is of the lesser M Performance line rather than a true single-integer M car, and both are powered by turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-six engines turning (at least) their rear wheels.
The 2-series models drive like BMWs should and with enough dynamic distinction between them to justify the difference in price.
By contrast, Audi’s duo of Sportbacks excel at all the nondriving stuff.
Of the two, the basic A5 Sportback is the more resolved car, as it doesn’t feel the need to be so self-consciously sporty all the time.
And the all-wheel-drive system finds abundant traction, even when it starts to rain.
The E43 feels far more keen, though, and it is.
Suddenly you’re channeling the spirit of an E39-generation BMW 5-series.
They feel as relentlessly well engineered as any of their predecessors, if lacking the pulse-raising ability necessary for a world-beating sports sedan.
Adult spanking is a curious thing. I mean, most of us did not like being spanked as children. We dreaded spankings, didn’t we? So, why do so many of us long to be spanked as adults. I think for some of us, it is for sexual pleasure. For others, it is to meet an emotional need. Maybe we feel we deserve it before we enjoy fucking. Some parts of society make women feel we are bad if we enjoy being fucked. So, maybe we feel better about our longing if we are punished first. I will tell you why I want you to spank me.
