    That is why I drive a 550 which is still small. I remember at a stop light in my 308 looking left to see the bumper of a Ford pickup truck right next to my head.

    I have a pic of a 550 between a BMW 5 series and a 3 series I took..I cant find it for some reason. Could be on my other phone..but she was small in comparison, I love the 550.

    I love your car.

    Black yellow B

    In my opinion a 308 can't get more beautiful than that.

    I always find it astounding just how big modern sportscars are. Equally astounding is just how well they perform.

    I have wanted to see a photo of a 308 beside a Charger: big big big difference in size. Thank you.

    Just did a long drive throughout Toronto running some errands in my Mondial 3.2 Cab, lot's of grid lock and construction makes for irate drivers pointlessly dodging around lane to lane by treating the gridlock as a fast and furious opportunity, and it is clear that many cars/SUV's just don't see me, the car is so low. Had to drive very defensively, but reminds me of my old motorcycling days where defensive driving was par for the course.

    The 308/Mustang photo is particularly shocking, in that one does not think of the Mustang as a large car.

    Hard to believe both of those cars are built for the same cargo.

    ... it is hard to believe the 308 is big enough to fit a V8 engine.

    Thanks a lot for posting this... now I either feel fat or like a giant and think how do I fit into my 328???? Lol
    Wow what a perspective. I remember the large cars in the 70 and early 80s then going to small cars and now back to large cars.
    Yes, be careful when driving out ‘pocket’ cars with all those largest vehicles on the road. Worse with all the texting and cell phone use drivers are more distracted and will claim they did not see our cars... next they will come out and say our cars are too small for the road.

    This was today. Why is it that with over 1/2 the parking lot empty, this bufoon MUST park his tank that doesn't fit in the spot next to an exotic????
    And yes, he had a passenger that didn't seem to care how wide her door swung open Image Unavailable, Please Login

    These pictures demonstrate what you need to do to carry 10 airbags around with you everywhere you go.
