Subaru kid washing car commercial

So I'm sure many of you have seen this commercial below. If not watch it. What would you do if it's your car and more importantly your BMW.




For my answer. Deport them to military school. In Somalia.

How can you go from a 650i to a 328i with the steptronic. Is she happy?

She wanted a small(er) car that has the ability to drop its top. Cars at the port of New Jersey, waiting for it to head to the dealership. Should be here next week. Sister isn't a performance junkie. As long as it's comfortable, safe, and has heated seats and a heated steering wheel, it's the perfect car. Having the top drop is just a dream for her.

So I stopped by the dealer today, to alert them that my winter tires would be showing up in their afternoon mail sometime next week. Didn't expect to see this....

I can haz M car? Pleez?

The other cars on the showroom floor are either black or white. In comparison, this thing looks like a bomb is in the midst of detonating in the room.

They have an M6 on the way in San Marino Blue. I can't wait to see the effect of the two of them together...assuming this doesn't get snapped up before then. (It can be yours for the low, low price of eighty large plus a few hundred.)

Sis brought her '13 Coral Red on Alpine White e93 home last night. Some differences from my '08 e92 328xi

The suspension has been softened significantly. The runflat tires don't seem to have a huge impact on the ride quality. The seats are nicely padded and bolstered. After about an hour, my butt would start hurting in my e92. The car doesn't crash on harsh pavement anymore. It's more refined. The I6 is of course, a masterpiece and a gem. It's buttery smooth and makes all the right noises.

Just a reminder that you are driving a used car that can be purchased with less than half the Bar Mitzvah money taken in by the average 13 year old. 2012 Hyundai and Kia drivers look down upon you. Think about that. Better park around the block when you visit the relatives for Thanksgiving dinner, wouldn't want them to see you this way.

The F30 is a great car, the upcoming F32 looks fantastic, time to grab ahold of what's left of your self-esteem and visit your local BMW dealer.

Yes, the stripped versions like dealers offer for loaners and like you are used to driving, typically do not hold their values very well. Thanks for pointing out the obvious.

Actually in my neighborhood, one of the neighbors kids was bought an f30 335i as an 18th birthday present. It's not that uncommon for the kids to get 40 to 50k cars anymore. I guess if BJ lived down here he would have to get a 5 or 7 series to keep up as they are very common. The rest of us on planet reality can enjoy what we have and go about our lives.

LOL, Ain't that the truth.

While I've always felt like the "little kid" in the neighborhood among all the 5's and 7's, I've been amused to see the proliferation of E93's I see on a daily basis. So far the e93 contingent doesn't include highschoolers, but I imagine that is only a matter of time. . . . . . .
