BMW 1M: The ultimate…commuter car?

So back then i bought a brand new 2011 Audi A3 quattro 5-door hatchback to celebrate my new job. I used the A3 for about 2 years and the… » 4/22/15 1:19pm Wednesday 1:19pm

Apple Watch vs The Police

With all of the hubbub about the Apple Watch and the massive potential surrounding it, we must speak of a large pitfall. Generally, there’s really no issues with the Apple Watch.

Paul Walker – A True Car Enthusiast

Recently, the movie Furious 7, the 7th installment in the Fast and Furious franchise, hit theaters. I haven’t seen it yet, but I’m told the movie is a fitting goodbye to one of the automotive world’s most beloved actors, Paul Walker. Unfortunately, Walker tragically lost his life on November 30th, 2013 in a car crash… » 4/07/15 1:51pm 4/07/15 1:51pm

Top 10 best looking cars for under $35,000

Yesterday I wrote a little article about the ten best looking cars on the market right now. There were some commenters who seemed unhappy about how expensive all the choices were. When I set out to pick the absolutely best looking cars, at least which are in my opinion, I wasn't looking at price, just exteriors. » 3/13/15 4:39pm 3/13/15 4:39pm

Leather vs Leatherette vs Cloth – Which one should I get?

If you've ever sunk yourself into one of the leather thrones of a BMW 7 Series or X5, you'll know just how comfortable and supportive seats of any kind can be. BMW is one of the better makers of bum supporters in the industry. Somehow, the Bavarians are able to make seats that both comfort and support, allow for both… » 3/05/15 4:58pm 3/05/15 4:58pm

Most Important 6 Cars I’ve Ever Driven

I've been fortunate to have driven a large number of cars over the years (without doing serious harm to myself or others in the process). There are a number of favorites and a handful of dogs, some of which were terrible drivers, others terribly styled, and some afflicted with both bad traits. But there are six I… » 2/17/15 4:57pm 2/17/15 4:57pm

An Old Guy's Take On Driverless Cars

I've been seeing a lot of 'Save the manuals' missives float past on blog pages and social media recently. Having never owned anything but sticks in 40 some odd years, I'm wondering if one will be available on the next new car I purchase. But it also reminds me of cars I've owned or driven that have had such fun… » 2/04/15 4:14pm 2/04/15 4:14pm

Does BMW need a 1 Series Sedan?

We all know more front-wheel drive BMWs are coming so everyone, stop complaining. BMW has made its bones by making cars that drive the rear wheels.

The Internet was scary, but electric vehicles shouldn’t be

Change is always scary. New technologies that change the way we live will always make the masses nervous. It's understandable, really. We get very used to the way things are, and as soon as we get comfortable, things change again. It happened with computers first, then with the internet and now it seems to be… » 1/28/15 4:07pm 1/28/15 4:07pm
