If you want to see your car in a movie; "Modern Problems" Chevy Chase on Netflix. The Lancia was a chick magnet, unlike my Porsche, which is a truck magnet. ; )

Leaving Panamera S for 750i M Sport

While the Panamera S has been a fun car to drive, it is not fun to go to a Porsche dealer. I am seeking understated looks with ample power in a luxury 4 door. I also have a 650i Coupe, that car is...

At 29,000 miles, when I step on it, the black smoke billows out the tail. Not sure I can ride this train much longer. How do I approach the service advisor, demo while following me?

I think BMW needs a recall on this Drivetrain Malfunction issue. Never seen a car shake so violently in 30 years of driving.

If mine does it again, it's off to the Maserati dealer.

I did the same thing. I noticed all these times missing, so I took them all out of my trade-in, an earlier 650i and put them in my new one.
