I was wandering around to find some cool video to add in here, nice vette vid btw, and ran across this.
At first I thought this was some ricer addon thing. Then I googled it and its on bmwusa so Im guessing this is an official addon wheel deal. Please tell me Im mistaken and its a ricer thing..... please....
X5 drives off the third-floor of a parking garage, landing on its roof. Driver walks away unharmed, passenger has some "arm pain."
Back when I had my E39, I was at the dealer for something, and struck up a conversation with an attractive young woman who had a beautiful new black 540i. She told me this was her second one, the first was hit head-on by a stolen SUV which was being chased by police at the time. Although the Bimmer was totaled, neither her nor her infant daughter (who was in a baby seat in the back) were injured. She credited the car`s structural integrity with saving her life.
The road goes ever onward....
My car ticked over 80k miles today. To mark the occasion, I have it a pretty thorough cleaning inside and out. To the uninitiated, I'm sure it could pass for a two year old car. Nice to see a timeless design that holds up so well. I'm hoping to keep it until it hits 250k miles. At the rate I'm going, that'll be in 2032. See ya then...
Right, those russians are insane in traffic. And specially with foreign licence plates i would be always guilty to everything. Not planning to drive there ever with my BMW, even when i'm living very close to border.
Tried brand new Honda Civic little while ago, it was some campaign from dealer, just try it and you got chance to win one.
Even when mine is 12yrs old that new Honda couldn't be any better.
Maybe my beemer lose little bit in fuel economy, but otherwise it made clear that i won't need new Honda. BMW actually does good job long before others learn how to do it.
Hey, who was the guy in the dark blue E46 sedan with the angel eyes, roof rack and NY plates that I followed on Rt 78 from PA to Rt 287 ? I just wanted to say, "nice looking car".
BTW...I drove from NJ to Sharpsburg MD and back, and including puttering around on local roads, I averaged 29.9 mpg. Just on the way down, I averaged 30.8mpg at 73 mph. My Dad and his wife, who drove to meet me in their Honda CRV (what a sh!t box) averaged 26, and probably went a lot slower than me. Haha.
