I was very surprised to see 41 i3's for sale across the states, according to cars.com. And they are not all loaded! From $55,025 Rex's to a $42.250 BEV. And many not priced.

I had the opportunity to drive one at the Nashville BMW event. I hadn't realized that I would get to drive for all of about 4 miles! About 2 miles of interstate and 2 miles of local roads. The folks...

A twin in the neighborhood?

Had a pleasant surprise the other day - driving down I-65 south of Nashville near 100 Oaks. See a silver 3-series pulling up in the lane next to me. Had to be doing about 10 miles per hour faster...

You do know your Porsches! The tire/wheel package was about $6,000! But they are great looking, and they really do complement the blacked out look. It was very surprising how big a difference the...

I am a Touareg fan, and have driven the current one (and I do like it, too). But I think the Porsche interior is much nicer, especially the driver's cockpit. And because I can be so superficial, the...

Oh yeah - I did drive it, too. Didn't make that clear from the original post.

Drove a 2013 Cayenne Diesel

Was out test-driving with a friend of mine today - he's actively in the market for some sort of an SUV-ish vehicle to replace his Lexus LX470.

He hadn't been actively considering the Cayenne - had...

To be clear, the $470 price was quoted by Bridgestone's retail store, NOT the BMW dealership. The BMW actual price was $407.

So, here's what we've seen:

The Bridgestone retail is the most...

Looks like TireRack has them for $378 each, so the dealer isn't marking them up too bad.

And I already have the insurance, so... $50 it is!
