Audi took a jab at MBENZ. Sad that BMW didn't. Then again, when you are the king, you don't need to reduce yourself to the level of a jester ~

Look! Up in the sky! It's a bird! It's a plane! No, it's the Mercedes Benz logo smack dab in the middle of all those lights which aren't working. How do you say publicity catastrophe in German?

Good one^^

Trades in the wife's camry for a '14 Mazda CX-5. Only 40 miles and I'm pushing 26 mpg, wait till this gets broken in!

Wife had 5 vertebrae fused, and the camry is just too low for her. This thing has much of what my e90 has. Basically most of the 2009 tech has proliferated, mazda even has active xenons.

Thanks. Took care of her. Now that she has her vehicle, I'm cleared to get a sports sedan again, likely summer 2014. I Love my E90, it was ny first made to order vehicle. But I made some compromises. Not next time.

Stop calling it Nemo. Stupid TWC marketing ploy...

In New England, we just call it "winter".

Mein Auto: 2009 335i xDrive coupe
Day One, Ante Sequestria, in what was once the capital city of a mighty empire. The Provisional Authority has set up Sequestervilles along the Mall, a labyrinth of clapboard and cardboard and canvas that will swallow you up if you aren't careful.

The smells.

At night, the sounds.

Some of us from the hinterlands were assigned to a cluster of hovels and lean-tos that has come to be called Ezra's Alley. Others of us are acres away, on a strip they call Boehner's Run. Still others are unaccounted for.

I saw men fighting to the death over an EBT card. Unemployed firemen loitered in front of their now shuttered fire house. A limousine rolled past, with Romney stickers on it. It stopped. A man got out and put his cigar out on a puppy.

But then the sun started to set, and the temperature dropped. A group of newly unemployed teachers came down from Arne's Acre, and took the stall for firewood. They were able to build a fire, providing a modicum of heat in the chilly night. A few rats and a scraggly squirrel, cooked on the fire, was all the food they had. The heat and food attracted attention from the refugees from Blair House. They swarmed down in the middle of the night. The encounter was violent, and for the teachers, fortunately brief. The next morning, a few Washington Post reporters stumbled upon the site. The sight of the carnage drove them mad.

Word has come that several Federal employees have barricaded themselves into the Executive Office Building and are vowing to fight to the death before they see the doors closed and locked forever. Cannibalism will be sure to follow. They can't live long on bottled spring water, coffee, and creamer.

Rumors spread of potable water and even some fuel on the other side of the river. But all of the crossings are controlled by the warlords of Alexandria and their confederates. From the tales told of their depravity, you'd rather drown than be taken alive.

We may yet have to chance it. Another engineer - was I an engineer? Am I one now? - another engineer, he was hit in the leg during the disturbances in Foggy Bottom and the wound will not close.

I will not allow myself the luxury of hope. This is all that is real now. They tore a piece of the world off and we survivors are forsaken to wander the 98.5 percent of it that's left.

I pray you are safe and will send word when next I can.

If you've watched "Revolution" on NBC, I think we can do better. MUCH better.

Watching Top Gear (US) "150 MPH Challenge" and "Taxis". The Bugati and McClaren MP4-12c are f'ing amazing. Both have fins that come up to slow them down. Yes, the spoiler tilts up when you hit the brakes to give you air stopping power. That is freaking awesome. Add to that, the McLaren gets 18MPG and avoids the gas guzzler tax. How does a super car like that manage to avoid that tax, but the M3 can't manage to do it. COme on BMW, get your **** straight!
