An E39 with no rust and a straight body is something worth owning. If it cost 6 or 7 thou to do so, it is still worth it if it brings that car up to snuff. Like others have said, just take your...

This ^.

Proper habits are a part of being a driver, or doing any kind of dangerous work.

At a stop sign, I look left, right, then left, even if going onto a one way street. I can't approach a...

Find a good place for beer. Drive out 3 or 4 hours on the autobahn. Have lunch, drive back, hitting the rev limiter. Then have beers.

And sausage.

Sleep.

Wake up.

Rinse and repeat.

This would make a big difference to me.

As I was spiraling down from 30,000 feet, I would certainly be asking myself, do I blame the engineers? Or the pilot? Or some terrorists?

Put the brake on first, let go of the foot brake, and then put it in park. Make that your regular routine, and you will do it on a hill, where it really matters most.

I don't consider cars to be assets. To me, they are consumables/personal possessions, and luxury cars are experiences. A river cruise can easily cost a couple 15K door to door when everything is...

The concept is this: a BMW is a toy, or, if you will, a luxury item. You can certainly get transportation, which is a need, for 10K rather than a toy for 50K. So, when it comes to buying toys, you...

Punching a coworker in the mouth because you are unhappy with him will usually get you fired when you have a history of being somewhat abusive.

Buy, or lease?

If buy, do you keep it for many years, or do you trade them in after 3,4, or 5?

If you buy and trade, wait. If you lease or keep, get it now.

Drag can also be detrimental. So, going against the wind, or having it hit you crosswise, will hurt your mpg.
