Limits vary according to state laws. In my case, I saw value in it because the dealer saved me multiple trips to the DMV and drove me to the airport.

The Four Points is a nice little piece of Ami-Land - being that there is ample parking and it's not overly German past the bed sheets. You can see the Hochhaus if you are on the right side. Its a...

It reminded me of my mom's mid 90's volvo wagon (sound and throttle).

Then I went home to my last month of production E90 M-Sport 328i.

It reminded me of a...

My vegan roommate did $1,400 of damage to my bumper because he can't control a trash bin. People suck everywhere, just be happy you don't live in France where simple parking is a contact sport.
