    The BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe has been showcased at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show. There is not much much difference between that of the 3 Series and the 4 Series, simply put it’s just slightly more high-end version of the 3 Series. The car is quite similar to the 3 Series GT with it being quite practical in it’s design. The 4 Series Coupe has a more attractive design with frameless windows to help emphasise it’s ‘coupe’ badge.   Engines include a 3.5 – capable of 306 BHP The engines available with the car are less limited than the BMW 3 Series.

    Since its arrival on the scene over 10 years ago, the BMW 1 Series has managed to firmly establish itself as one of the leading luxury hatchbacks in the market. The latest 2015 edition clearly illustrates just why almost 2 million models have been sold and why this year will be another rewarding one. The car  has kept with its successful traditions and has also been enhanced, keeping up with new consumer demands and setting itself apart from rivals. New engines have been fitted, with BMW’s latest collection being utilized. EfficientDynamics, the company’s family of environmental…

    AutomotiveNews recently sat down at a press conference with GM’s current CEO, Mary Barra, where she said GM doesn’t miss any of the brands it recently discontinued during the bankruptcy period of 2008. Many GM fans have been mourning over the death of particular stablemates like Pontiac because that brand gave us one of the most iconic cars of the 1960s–the GTO. And while many out there could argue that GM’s time with Saab led to the demise of the Swedish automaker, it isn’t just quite over yet with Saab as the brand is still seeking ways to secure a future.

Speaking to AutoBlog, a company spokesperson mentioned a new concept to “reimagine” Kia’s approach to one of their most popular vehicles. This implies a volume seller, like the Soul or the Optima. But then that spokesperson decided to add, it was “built for city dwellers seeking an adventurous escape, proves that practical urban wheels can also be rugged and capable.” That right there is a dead…

    Fans of British Top Gear, like yours truly, will be happy to hear that the BBC will be signing the trio on for an additional three years by contract. So that there pretty much guarantees there will be the world’s most admired motoring show for that duration. Top Gear unfortunately has been the bearer of bad attention, from Jeremy Clarkson’s false report of dropping the n-bomb to the controversy over the Patagonia special, where Jezza’s registration plate on his Porsche 928 was “H982 FKL,” which was interpreted as a reference to the 1982 Falklands War.

    McLaren’s stirring up the news by teasing a new car for Geneva. The new model is apparently called the 675LT and its purpose is to pay homage to the original McLaren F1 GTR “Long Tail,” a famous LeMans racer of the 1990s. Power is said to be rated at an evil 666hp, 25hp more than the 650S, presuming the same 3.8L twin-turbocharged V8 is being used, which is very likely.

    One thing that sets TTAC apart is our appreciation for the kind of cars that most people would write off as “boring”. Part of it is born from our commitment to serving our readers – more often than not, there is a strong desire to read about cars one would actually purchase, rather than just automotive pornography featuring the latest supercars. The other half of it is a bit more selfish.

    Per a report by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, driver fatalities in the United States have fallen by a third over the past three years. Automotive News says the report’s findings come after the seemingly endless recall parade of 2014, which saw 60.5 million vehicles in the U.S. brought in for repair work, an all-time industry record. The IIHS added that nine vehicles made in 2011 or earlier had no fatalities recorded between 2009 and 2012: Audi A4 4WD, Honda Odyssey, Kia Sorento 2WD, Lexus RX 350 4WD, Mercedes-Benz GL-class 4WD, Subaru Legacy 4WD, Toyota Highlander hybrid…

  • Junkyard Find: 1972 Plymouth Valiant Sedan

    30 Jan 2015 | 6:00 am
    There was a time when the late-60s/early-70s Dodge Dart/Plymouth Valiant sedan was the generic automobile in the United States, possibly the most invisible car on American roads. Swimming-pool blue and this queasy shade of green were the most common colors, and the cars were so cheap to maintain that they survived in everyday use much longer than most of their peers. You don’t see the old A-bodies so much these days, but enough remain that they continue to show up in big self-service wrecking yards. Here’s one that I saw in Northern California last week. So far in this series,…

  • 2015 BMW X6 M First Drive: Defying Logic—and Physics—Yet Again

    Joe Lorio
    30 Jan 2015 | 3:27 pm
    When the M versions of the BMW X5 and X6 first appeared in 2009, they represented multiple heresies for the M brand: They used turbocharged engines, they had all-wheel drive, and they were—oh no!—sport-utility vehicles. Since then, BMW’s M division has pretty much brushed aside notions of what does or doesn’t constitute heresy. The new M3 and M4 use a turbocharged engine (as do the M5 and the M6). All-wheel drive is coming to the M5. And nearly 20,000 M-badged SUVs roam the streets. READ MORE ››

    These days, it’s almost impossible to write about a new car without using “ZF” somewhere in the text. It’s not for our lack of proper noun skills, but for the overwhelming fact that ZF–short for Zahnradfabrik, or literally “gear factory”—has its 8HP eight-speed automatic transmission in nearly every automaker’s portfolio. But ZF Friedrichshafen, on its way to becoming the second biggest parts supplier in the car industry, has more tricks up its transfer case than adding ever more forward ratios, and we explore some of them here. For starters, ZF would…

    2015 Audi A3 TDI As diesels become more popular in the United States (three carmakers, including Audi, currently offer six models each, while the total number of diesel models on the market five years ago was 12), many rules are being broken. Just a decade ago, the idea of a sporty diesel would have been unthinkable, yet the BMW 335d broke that barrier in 2010. With the redesign of its A3 range, Audi introduced the A3 TDI sedan in the United States. The Audi looks like the other sedans in the current Audi lineup, which is not a bad thing at all. It comes only in sedan form, and Audi has…

A focus on the need to speed up the car-buying process and improve customer satisfaction will inevitably lead to the demise of this role in the dealership, or so it’s said.

I never before had the opportunity to rub elbows with Baja off-road legends and drive and co-drive roughly 300 miles of the legendary Baja 1000 off-road course, and most likely I never will again. BFGoodrich was so confident in their new all-terrain radials that they flew me and several other journalists to Baja to put the new tires to the test in the environment they were developed in.

Now, that did happen, but before I even opened it, I was first struck by the uncanny glow of the Daytona Yellow 1969 Douglass-Yenko Super Camaro on the front. The car had a nearly three-dimensional presence that brought its streamlined shape to life in a way you rarely see on the…

The auto industry is back on track, with 16.9 million new vehicles sold in America in 2014, up from a low point of 11.5 million in 2009. This resurgence has created over 400,000 new jobs over that timespan, at automotive manufacturers, suppliers, and dealerships.

While I’ve been to NAIAS a number of times over the years, this was the first time I flew home knowing that I need to start doing things differently, ASAP. Although the price of gasoline may have plummeted, there’s still a mission (make that multiple missions) that must be accomplished. Gas will not stay this cheap forever. Ford kindly flew me in with a crowd of “Digital Influencers” and I lived happily in the big blue snowglobe with my new comrades.

    The recent drop in crude oil prices has driven the cost of gasoline down to remarkably low levels across America. It’s a whole new era, with our country suddenly awash in relatively cheap oil. This couldn’t come at a better time for many families, with all that newly liberated cash finding its way into the holiday gift budget. The piggy bank’s been fracked and we all need new jumbo flat screen TVs, the latest video games and fuzzy blankets. So how low will gas prices go? What’s really driving the price drop?

    If you’ve never had the need to get rid of a junk car, count yourself lucky. Dumping a clunker can be a real hassle. The trick is to minimize your financial loss without spending a huge amount of time, effort and expense. I’ve had to unload more than a few junkers over the years and it’s never been fun. For most consumers, junking a car is a losing proposition. But for entrepreneurs, there’s plenty of money to be made. Think about all of the print, TV, and radio advertisements you’ve endured for WeBuyAnyCar, for example. Their pervasive jingle is a highly-effective earworm. If they…

I could’ve just looked up a truck-heavy picture, but a scene used on an Internet music video that I saw a couple of years ago came back to me: the final chase scene from 1978’s cult classic The Driver. In it, we find two drivers-for-hire and their passengers: one drives a hot-rodded 1976 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am, a great period getaway vehicle. The other? A 1973 Chevrolet C-10 pick-up truck -the type of rig that’s highly thought of and has been written…

That pithy little slogan, coined by architect Louis Henry Sullivan over a century ago, sums up the hard core modernist approach to architecture and industrial design: the shape of a thing should be determined solely by what it is intended to do, with little or no allowance for ornamentation.  Sullivan's buildings were not nearly as austere as the slogan suggests, but other modernists took the concept all the way to its logical extreme. Adolf Loos, one of Sullivan's contemporaries, declared that all ornamentation--any ornamentation--is "immoral" and…

  • Lexus LF-LC GT Vision Gran Turismo is the Holographic Hotness

    30 Jan 2015 | 5:00 pm
    Sub5zero - Celebrating the Fast Life It’s been another eventful week for Gran Turismo 6 players; on Wednesday, Alpine – the iconic French sports car manufacturer that parent company Renault is working on reviving – revealed its retro-inspired open-top Vision Gran Turismo submission, which is due to be added to the game via download in March. And today, Lexus has taken the virtual sheet off its digital concept car for the festival, the Lexus LF-LC GT Vision Gran Turismo. If part of the name seems familiar, that’s because this machine is derived from the brand’s 2012 LF-LC Concept.

    Sub5zero - Celebrating the Fast Life There was a time that Toyota’s involvement in the World Rally Championship was a given. Every year, some of the sport’s best drivers – world champions Carlos Sainz, Didier Auriol and Juha Kankkunen among them – would line up at the starting line in Celica GTs, Celica Twin-Cam Turbos, Celica GT-Fours and, eventually, Corolla WRCs to take on the best of the best, and often come out on top. However, when the 1999 season drew to a close, the Japanese giant announced it was ending its WRC program (as well as the GT-One sports prototype program) in order…

    Sub5zero - Celebrating the Fast Life The Lamborghini Huracan, despite its standing as the Italian brand’s entry-level offering, will never be built and sold in the kinds of numbers that, say, its (distant) corporate cousin the Volkswagen Golf is. Even so, it will be built in numbers great enough that there’s a chance you could come across one that’s pretty much identical to yours. Surely there’s a way to prevent such an embarrassment, isn’t there? Well, yes, courtesy of Vorsteiner. The California-based company has created a body kit for the new baby Lambo called the Verona.

The idea of picking the best car of the year – be it the one that’s just passed or the one about to begin – is hardly an original idea in automotive journalism circles. Perhaps that’s the main reason why when Chris Harris and a handful of colleagues and friends invaded Portugal’s Algarve circuit with seven high-performance cars last month, they decided not to pick an actual “winner.” On the face of it, that reeks of the sort of hand-holdy, kumbaya, participation-trophies-for-all line of thinking that has…

    Sub5zero - Celebrating the Fast Life One of the most egregious shames in the automotive world, in our opinion, is that the French company Alpine (pronounced Al-PEEN, s’il vous plait) doesn’t get more mainstream recognition. Originally started by a Renault dealer 60 years ago, the company built a series of rear- and mid-engine sports cars that had fairly successful careers in circuit racing and rallying. Come 1973, Renault purchased the company and tasked it with creating a turbo-V6-powered sports prototype to win the 24 Hours of Le Mans, which it did in 1978 with drivers Didier Pironi and…

  • Wait a Minute, Could Hummer Come Back?

    tgriffith
    30 Jan 2015 | 1:00 am
    Well, this is embarrassing. Just this week I said that the return of the Ford Bronco is as likely as a Hummer coming back. Lo and behold, what headline greeted me as I awoke yesterday? Why GM could revive a Hummer to battle the Jeep Wrangler How about that. The headline was more of an attention-grabber, but it proved to me that nothing is impossible, and automakers will do some crazy things to remain competitive. The likelihood of a revived Hummer truly is about zero, but that doesn’t mean General Motors can’t use former Hummer plans and build us something new. The Hummer HX…
  • Dodge Wants to Be Pontiac, But Why?

    tgriffith
    29 Jan 2015 | 1:00 am
    I like to live in a world that makes sense, but sometimes that’s just not in the cards. An article over at Automotive News ran with the headline, “Can Dodge Rebuild Pontiac Excitement?” The headline alone leaves me with three questions: Why would Dodge want to rebuild from Pontiac’s ashes? Did Pontiac even have any real “excitement” after the 1969 GTO? Pontiac failed. Shouldn’t Dodge chart a new course? The point of the article is that General Motors left some holes in the market when it shuttered Pontiac and Hummer, and FCA is primed to fill them…
  • New Ford Bronco: Fact or Fiction?

    28 Jan 2015 | 1:00 am
    This is the newest Bronco you’ll find Let’s just get this straight: A new Ford Bronco is about as likely as a new Hummer H2. The Bronco represents an iconic time in the development of the modern-day SUV, and plenty of rumors have floated around that it might be resurrected. It won’t. But the rumor won’t die. Would people even buy a go-anywhere 2-door SUV in this market? Would a new Bronco be anything more than a desperate plea by Ford to harken back to a long-gone era? A simple online search for “new Ford Bronco” brings up many pages of home bloggers…
  • Buy FIAT, or Buy Used?

    27 Jan 2015 | 1:00 am
    “It’s an ugly little thing, isn’t it?” The FIAT 500L was stopped at a light, one car length ahead, in the lane next to us. My wife, an aficionado of sexy car design, thinks the standard 500 is somewhat cute, but finds the 500L to be a disproportioned beast not unlike a freakishly large baby hippopotamus. The 500L is a bit of a misnomer, since it’s supposed to be the “big” version of a tiny car. The result is a car that isn’t big but isn’t tiny and ended up caught somewhere in the middle. It’s really quite an unfortunate sight.

    My wife and I were heading out to an evening of salsa dancing and thought we’d take our two young girls with us to introduce them to something more culturally significant than Netflix TV shows. One child was eager to go and learn some Latin dancing, while the other threw a fit and declared, with a sly grin, that she would indeed be staying home. My keys were on a table near the front door, and when the time came to grab them, they were missing. There was no sign of them. My wife and I searched everywhere—in coat pockets, pants pockets, inside the car… all to no avail. The keys were…

  • My Midlife Crisis, or Adventures in Audi Maintenance

    Dustin Driver
    14 Jan 2015 | 6:25 pm
    Sure, it’s not really that bad as midlife crises go. I mean, yes, when I hit midlife I did switch jobs three times and got divorced, but that’s more the result of a constant and chronic whole-life crisis, not one of the midlife variety. No, my midlife crisis was automotive. My vehicular partners have all been Japanese and reliable and, literally, colorless (silver, beige, white, black, gray). I had owned my 2003 Mazda Protégé 5 for 10 long years. It was a fun, zippy, practical, economical car that could really do anything. But at 37 something snapped and I decided I needed more…

And if you have the cash to spare, you should have one. But it turns out there’s another more tangible reason to buy a classic car, they’re rapidly appreciating. According to a report by Douglas Ellison and Knight Frank, while traditional collectible investments like watches, art, and coins have appreciated some, (with appreciations of 3%, 5% and 10% in the last 12 months,…

  • 10 Far-Out ’50s Concept Cars that Look Like They’re Ready for Take-Off

    Gerri
    29 Nov 2014 | 11:40 am
    Image Source Inspired by the space race and radical rocket designs of the time, 1950s automakers dreamt up a series of boundary-pushing “cars of the future.” Today, these prototypes often look amusingly retro-futuristic, like something out of classic Hanna-Barbera cartoon The Jetsons or original ’60s sci-fi hit Star Trek. At the time, though, they were sleek, cutting-edge and ultra-modern. These concept cars were sometimes presented as atomic energy-powered, engineless prototypes for, despite the now-obvious dangers, this was how designers envisaged the future of motoring.

However, thanks to some truly outside-the-box thinking, the following incredible prototypes debunk that stereotype, switching outdated automotive designs for aerodynamic tractors, cutting-edge technological innovations and eco-friendly hybrid advances.

    Driven by strong sales of the MPC-12C and the P1 McLaren Automotive achieved record sales in the year 2014. The tally of 1648 super cars moves the company closer to its goal of producing 4000 cars per year in the near term.

    We all love our cars – they get us to and from work and from A to B, saving us from using that dreaded public transport that we all hate. But, purchasing a new car can be pretty expensive and we don’t all have that kind of money lying around. As a result a large number of us car lovers opt to purchase a used or pre-owned vehicle. However, there is large debate as to whether purchasing a used car is in fact beneficial at all. Whilst buying a brand new car will ensure you have the latest gizmos and gadgets, the value of the vehicle will drop significantly after the first year and they are…

    Victor OG
    30 Jan 2015 | 4:33 pm
    The Ferrari FF is the car nobody expected Ferrari to make and if I am honest, a bit of an odd ball in the line up. Fundamentally, it is a 2 door wagon-ish looking car, otherwise known as a “shooting brake”, with an extremely complicated all-wheel drive system and a glorious twelve cylinder engine in the front. The 6.3 L naturally aspirated V12 is essentially a de-tuned version of the one found in the Ferrari F12, and in this case makes 651 horsepower and 594 lb-ft of torque. When it debuted in 2011, it took everyone by surprise. Now it looks like Ferrari will be releasing an updated…

    When the term “muscle car” comes to mind, it is only natural to think about the drag strip and quarter mile times. Since the 1960’s, American cars such as the Chevrolet Camaro, Dodge Challenger, and the Ford Mustang have been fighting over the right to be named “king of the drag strip”. Although the quarter mile and 0-60 mph times are still a relevant way of measuring the straight-line speed of a car, it is the racetrack where a car can be tested thoroughly. The race track has usually been the weak point for traditional muscle cars, but recently American automakers want to prove…

    After seventeen years, 41,000 miles, two crashes, and one owner, it looks like Rowan Atkinson is preparing to part ways with his McLaren F1. There isn't an actual online listing of the car yet so we don't know the exact price tag but it's somewhere around 8 million pounds or 12 million dollars. That's a hefty tag for a car that was once wrapped around a tree, but because of the rarity of the F1 -- only 107 were ever produced and just 64 of them were actually street cars -- it's really no surprise. While it's hard to top a McLaren F1, Atkinson is a longtime car enthusiast so we're sure…

    At this point, we are all waiting impatiently to see what the Ford Focus RS will be like in its production uniform. Since the introduction of the 2012 Focus, the US has finally been brought up to global standards with the Focus. Before that we just kept getting the same warmed over junk that came out 10 years earlier. The Focus was comfortable, sporty, and really well screwed together. I had a 2012 sedan for a couple of years and liked almost all of it (the hatch is more practical and the Powershift automatic transmission was completely USELESS).

The Hungarian Police released this video (probably as a speeding deterrent) showing the driver flying past other drivers like he was playing Grand Theft Auto. The driver then lost control, slid off the road, and promptly burnt itself to the ground, in typical Italian fashion. The picture above shows the car before all this, the driver taking it up to over 330 Kilometers an hour (that is closing in on 210MPH), and all that was left when it was said and done.

The big competition was Rolls-Royce, not really doing so hot at the time, and Bentley, same story as Rolls. I am not sure what Daimler saw in that market but they thought there was room for growth. So they pulled out a pre-war luxury mark that had been gathering dust since purchase in the ’60s and made a big ass car. The Maybach 57 and 62 were born. These two models came to market in 2002 and were damn near the most money that you…

In order to somewhat get around that, Mercedes-AMG decided to mock the Porsche 911 and its fans in a "relatively" subtle matter in its latest commercial. Starring the Mercedes-AMG GT, a small boy and the ghostly shape of a Porsche 911, the ad is clearly made to poke fun at the rear-engined sports car and all the fans who grew up wanting one — or have one.Part of a worldwide launch campaign rolling under the message "Handcrafted by Racers," the…

I also thought that was a great opportunity to have the constant "ACC/FCW Limited Functionality"-issue taken care of which virtually pops up every second time I start the car and put it in D. The updates were no issue at all and they thought they might have resolved the ACC-problem with one of the updates as well because according to them, the message did not reappear.

  • Deja vu all over again, here comes the VW Phaeton.

    Just yesterday Automotive News had an article that reported that amidst a cost cutting drive, Volkswagen has decided to re-introduce the uber expensive Phaeton model: “…the “people’s car” maker plans to spend millions of euros upgrading a money-losing luxury sedan.”–Automotive News 1/28/15 The blogosphere has erupted with any number of industry observers pointing out the illogic of re-introducing an Mercedes-Benz S-Class competitor when you have announced that you’re cutting costs and, oh by the way, the Phaeton has been a huge money losing…

I’m always the person expected to answer the automotive related questions and in this case a few people in the room knew that I had worked with folks at Lincoln in the past. “Cameron, WTF is going on with Lincoln?”  Before I even had a chance to answer, the entire table jumped in and started discussing the recent Lincoln advertising featuring Matthew McConaughey:       Lots of different opinions, some loved the ads, some thought they were stupid.  Some folks really love Matthew…
  • Until now, Cadillac has proven the adage: “Nothing hurts a bad product more than good advertising.”

    Cameron
    10 Dec 2013 | 12:39 pm
    This morning Cadillac introduced a new campaign from its new agency (Adweek 12/1013). The good news is that for the first time in a decade and a half, the product is as good or maybe better than the advertising.  The new ATS and CTS are getting rave reviews from the industry pundits and there seems to be broad agreement that finally, the Cadillac product is up to the job of moving the brand into the rarified air of Tier 1 luxury where Mercedes-Benz, BMW, Lexus and Audi compete. The Cadillac brand has been through a lot of marketing fits, starts and shifts over the last decade and a half.

    17 Nov 2013 | 4:07 pm
    Yesterday’s New York Times had an interesting article on North Face, the outdoor clothing company: North Face keeps walking the tightrope between exclusivity and the mass market. The question was: how is it that a brand like North Face maintains its perception as a premium or exclusive brand when it sells to just about everyone from kids and suburban moms to elite mountaineers, hikers, trekkers, runners, and skiers? If you read the article you’ll see that the President of the company actually says that they don’t pay much attention to analyzing who buys their products. They…

    Looking back over the past year I realized I never posted pictures of the OEM 19×9 ET33 S5 wheels I ran for about a month – so this post is long overdue! I found these wheels while surfing Craigslist at a VERY attractive price (~$600) and was looking to change it up from my BBS CH wheels at the time, so I scooped these up along with a lightly used set of Michelin Pilot Super Sports to produce the setup pictured above. Fitting these was pretty simple – despite the wider wheels and more aggressive offset, the wheels bolted on with no fender rolling or modifications needed…

    After owning both an Escort Passport 8500 and Valentine V1 simultaneously, I decided to sell the V1 in favor of the Escort – this is a personal preference that may not work for everyone, but I felt the 8500 was hands down a better detector for my needs. This surprised me quite a bit, because the V1 seems to have far more passionate fans and better reviews than the cheaper Passport models, so I expected to like the V1 one better and be writing this post about why it’s worth the extra money – but to me, it wasn’t, and then some. Here’s why: Valentine 1  The…

    I’ve been a fan of my STaSIS Ohlins SL “Challenge” coilovers for some time – they are a top of the line setup that rides nicely for a daily driver, yet excels at the track or canyon drives, too. The only major downside to these coilovers, besides cost, was that they are intended to be rebuilt every 2 years or 25,000 miles according to the manufacturer (1 year and 12k miles for Motorsports owners) due to certain components being built to race spec and thus needing replaced over time. STaSIS offered these rebuilds at a fairly affordable price of $500 for a full refresh,…

    Around a decade or so ago, Mitsubishi released, in Australia, the Lancer based Outlander. It very quickly morphed into a bigger, more stylish vehicle than the compact and edgy original, leaving Mitsubishi without a smallish SUV styled vehicle.

It started off as a semi harpish angled, petrol engined only machine and in 2015 is a softened slightly, diesel optioned chariot. A Wheel Thing talks to the torquey diesel ASX AWD. Powersource. Oddly, that diesel is a 2.2L, rather than a possibly more logical…

This is the most recent public bidding for such a lofty classic in ages, since most GTOs are traded in private with their selling price kept a secret. The $38-million sale became a world record in the arena of classic cars, despite rumors about another GTO secretly sold last year for $52 million, as its former owner keeps mum about the sale price. Another private sale in 2012 resulted in exchanging ownership of a GTO for $35 million. At any rate, the…

    With the advent of mobile devices and Internet sites devoted to providing information to a car buying public, the secrecy that once shrouded the auto buying process in a cloak of mystery is now an open book. A recent study by J.D. Power and Associates reveals that the traditional car dealership model of negotiation and forceful sales tactics is as dead as the proverbial dinosaur. Chapman BMW on Camelback welcomes the well-informed customer looking for the best deal on new and used BMWs in the Phoenix area.

  • Why Leasing your Next BMW Makes Sense

    Dave Maiden
    26 Jan 2015 | 4:57 pm
    Have you ever paid off a new car? If you have a history of paying off a new car purchase and then, as they say, running it until the wheels fall off, it may make sense for you buy your new BMW. If, on the other hand, you normally trade a vehicle in after two or three years, it probably makes more sense to take advantage of BMW lease specials and not suffer the depreciation factor that goes with a new car purchase. When you lease, you are only paying on the difference between the cost of the car and what it is estimated to be worth at the end of the lease. This usually results in lower monthly…
  • The 2015 BMW 328i rises above the competition in the luxury sedan segment

    28 Oct 2014 | 3:37 pm
    Luxury, power and superior craftsmanship. The 2015 BMW 328i at Chapman BMW on Camelback is a standout in the luxury sedan market, deftly beating the Lexus IS 250, Audi A4 and Mercedes C-300 across the board. The 2015 BMW 328i, powered by a TwinTurbo engine that makes 255 lb-ft of torque at just 1250 rpm is also fuel efficient: It makes an estimated 35mpg on the highway, compared to the less-than-robust 27mpg the Mercedes achieves, or the 32-mpg of the Audi A4. And the Lexus IS 250? Its puny 185hp is no match for the BMW. Standard safety features on the BMW 328i include Xenon Adaptive…

    23 Oct 2014 | 10:57 am
    When the new BMW i3 models were delivered to Chapman BMW on Camelback, the plug-in electric vehicles were missing one thing: AM radio channels. BMW is the first manufacturer to discontinue the AM radio band in its i3 and i8 electric vehicles, which begs the question: Is free radio nearly extinct? The answer, for right now, is no. And to its credit, BMW has explained the loss of AM radio signals in the i3 and i8 as an interference problem with the vehicle’s electric motor. According to Kenn Sparks, BMW Manager of Business Communications, in a letter to the National Association of…
  • 2015 BMW X6 Restyled And Elegant

    4 Aug 2014 | 9:40 am
    When the X6 made its debut, it was the first fastback-styled SUV to the market, redefining the SUV landscape. This gives BMW SUVs the stylistic bite most commonly associated with the automaker’s sports cars. For 2015, the BMW X6 gets a massive upgrade, though it is still undeniably an X6, with its huge—and iconic—twin-kidney grille. The X6 receives a short, stubby and stylish rear end with elegantly creased design lines. You can find the 2015 BMW X6 at Chapman BMW on Camelback. To shave costs, BMW ensured the X6 and X5 share the same hood, grille and headlight assemblies along with…

    Perfect Car Parts for Hassle-Free Driving Your body is a complex combination of a number of parts and organs. Their functions are interdependent and therefore, every part of the body needs to be perfectly maintained.  Similarly, your car, although looks simple and aesthetic externally, it is a complex combination of a number of parts and components that need to be perfectly maintained if you want a ‘hassle-free’ drive.  Engine is the heart of your car that moves by ‘internal combustion’ of gasoline. Car driving is not just putting on the switch and steering to anywhere you want.

  • Tech on Four Wheels: Pros and Cons of Computerized Cars

    Rob
    12 Nov 2014 | 4:53 am
    With the development of driverless car technology, many influential visionaries predict that in twenty years we will not drive our cars anymore – they will drive us. While the technology already exists, albeit in its initial phase, and the prospect of not having to worry about traffic congestion and accidents anymore certainly seems something to look forward to, the fact is – today’s young generation will almost certainly still be a generation of drivers. This is not to say that these drivers will not be immensely helped by technology. On the flip-side, this also means that they…
  • 10 Coolest Police Cars Around The Globe

    Lily Berns
    15 Aug 2014 | 2:25 pm
    For more than 100 years police have used cars to reach the places where the accident occurred, or to catch the criminals. Probably, many people have been accustomed to the fact that these cars are not much different from ordinary street vehicles (of course, except their coloring). So, partly it’s true. But in some countries policemen use vehicles, most of which we can confidently call “the sport cars” – engines in hundreds of horsepower, acceleration to 100 km/h in a few seconds… Check the list of the coolest police cars used in different countries all over the world…!

One of the biggest stories was the Audi A7 Driverless Car traveling from San Francisco to the event in Las Vegas – over 350 miles.

Of course, that’s a good thing when talking about travel. Mercedes-Benz also revealed their…

While technology continues to improve the way we think and judge the effects of marketing, there is still one simple premise that I follow:  K.I.S.S. – “Keep It Simple Stupid.” When I look at new dealers’ marketing plans it’s interesting to see the different areas that they are trying to target. There are always the core competencies of media,…

  • Why buying a diesel car might not be wise

    25 Jan 2015 | 3:36 pm
    Nowadays roughly half of all new cars registered in the UK run on diesel. Fleet and private buyers alike have been enticed by the prospect of better fuel economy, lower carbon dioxide emissions and healthier residual values. However, that popularity could be about to wane. Ironically, a widespread return to petrol engines or the adoption of electric-based technologies will likely be caused by politicians. That’s the exact same group of people who have supported diesel sales for so long by being obsessed solely with CO2 figures. Take London, for instance. Until recently, diesel cars that…

DragTimes has been nice enough to create two videos showcasing the Top 10 Fastest Cars from 2014 in the half-mile drag races for the 500+ Unlimited Class. These cars all pretty much have over 1,000 horsepower, a few turbochargers, and all-wheel drive, and boy can they fly.

In some places, such as where this video was shot, it is illegal to make a U-Turn at certain intersections due to the traffic congestion and danger with oncoming traffic. So when someone tries to make an illegal U-Turn and cause problems for traffic, it’s always great to see them get nailed by the police. A Toyota Celica decided that they would make a U-Turn at an intersection where it was illegal because of the traffic in both directions and lack…

Crossovers are one of the fastest growing segments in Europe right now and it is easy to see why – city folk love them for their ease of driving, especially in our tight cities, the added sense of security accorded by their high seating position, minus the hulk and fuel bills of their larger SUV counterparts. This is a segment that has traditionally been dominated by the Nissan Juke, but the Juke is going to see quite a far bit of competition this year, which is all the better for car buyers.

    In the UK, your car has to have an annual MOT test if it is more than three years old. The exception to that rule is if your car gets used as a taxi, in which case it must have a MOT when it’s a year old. Most people loathe submitting their cars to MOT tests. The actual process of driving your car to the test station isn’t an issue. But what is the problem for most people is waiting for news of whether their vehicle has passed with flying colours or failed miserably!

  • Locating Car Brake Fluid Leaks

    Justin Smith
    26 Jan 2015 | 4:01 am
    Brake fluid is an essential part of your car’s braking system. It is used to transfer the pressure from the footbrake into movement that in turn applies your car’s callipers to the disc brake. The first sign that you might have a leak within your brake fluid system is usually therefore indicated by the responsiveness of the footbrake pedal. If you start to notice that the pedal does not feel quite right, or that it is slightly spongy and taking longer to return to its normal position than usual, this is often the first sign that you have a problem. If the problem is particularly severe…
  • How to Change a Car’s Radiator

    Justin Smith
    23 Jan 2015 | 4:00 am
    Your car’s radiator keeps the engine at the correct working temperature by dissipating heat that is generated by the internal combustion process. The radiator circulates coolant throughout the engine block, where it becomes heated, before returning it to the radiator where it cools down with exposure to the atmosphere. If your radiator stops working properly, then this could lead to some severe problems with your engine over-heating and could even cause a fire under your bonnet. It is therefore imperative that you check out your radiator for problems the moment you think you are…

Before the recent festive break Scottish authorities announced a new blood alcohol limit, allowing drivers a maximum of 50mg of alcohol in every 100ml of blood and bringing the country’s legislation in line with the limits of other EU member states. This means that even a single glass of wine or pint of beer could take a driver over the limit, which could potentially result in a ban or even a custodial sentence if they are caught in such a state by the police.

    Power steering pump is a hydraulically operated device, which reduces the steering effort and makes a turn. It also helps in easy movements of the vehicle. The phenomenon of hydraulics is used to run the power steering pump for pushing the fluid into the steering gear box. This fluid under pressure assists the turning of wheels of the vehicle. On turning the steering wheel, small ports open up in the steering shaft, providing high amount of pressure causing the shaft to turn to further turn the wheels. The vehicle manufacturers always insist to check the fluid levels regularly in the Pump and…

  • Solid Rivet FAQ

    13 Jan 2015 | 6:37 am
    Solid rivets, sometimes called aircraft rivets, are a solid piece of metal with a large head on one side and a straight shaft. They are installed by sliding them in a hole slightly bigger than the shaft, then deforming the protruding shaft to 1 ½ times its size, so it is tight and cannot pull out. They differ from pop rivets in that they are solid, therefor stronger, and use a buck bar and pneumatic gun to install them instead.

    For many, winter mornings begin by letting the car warm up while they finish breakfast. While this time does allow for the cab to get toasty warm, are you aware that there is no actual need for that idling? In fact, unnecessary idling could be hurting your health and wallet. Before the 1980’s, idling was a necessary practice for American drivers. Back then, carburetors needed time to warm up in order to get the right mix of fuel and air to start. However, automakers began swapping carburetors for fuel injector systems in the ’80’s. Modern fuel injector systems regulate the…

    Today we tend to think of Porsche as a company that makes expensive sports cars. But Ferdinand Porsche, the Austrian-Czech engineer who founded the eponymous company, started off with a much different ambition. In the U.S., the Ford Model T was the first car that everyone could afford, and Porsche wanted to create a similarly […]The post Cars We Love: 1934 NSU Porsche Type 32 appeared first on On the road again.

The prototype for the car was crafted from Elektron, a magnesium-aluminum alloy that was strong and lightweight (one-third the weight of aluminum). Unfortunately, Elektron was also highly flammable, so it couldn’t be welded.

It wasn't the first electric or hybrid car available in the U.S; Honda introduced the Insight seven months earlier but in limited supply. But the Toyota Prius was the first mass-produced…

  • From $150 Ford Granada to $1.65 million Pagani Zonda

    David Gikera
    30 Jan 2015 | 3:50 am
    A British car enthusiast, Nick Truman has reportedly turned a Ford Granada into Pagani Zonda. This home project cost him around $23,000, lots of time, effort and the tip of his index finger. Nick bought a 1990 Ford Granada for just $150 and tested it with four different engines, with the last being a twin-turbo Audi V8 that cost him $365. Before this, he inserted a Jaguar V12 worth of $365, which died due to overheating. Nick started the project with an estimated budget of $5,000, but the overheads escalated way beyond it. The real-time Pagani Zonda is equipped with a 7.3 liter V12 engine…

    Where Is This Road Taking Us? As Shakespeare once asked, “What’s in a name?” For truckers working the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach, and by extension others across the country, their continued livelihood depends on the answer. Drivers and trucking companies have been locked in a bitter labor dispute, causing the truckers to strike last November in an effort to obtain more equitable working conditions. At issue is the loss of employee status as companies now list them as independent contractors. The difference is a major financial advantage for companies as it allows…

    No Luck Finding A Detour If your future travels take you through Calgary, better make sure you take your checkbook along.

The intent is to prevent noise and obstacles from disrupting quieter residential areas. The $100 fine that accompanies infractions is apparently not enough to motivate compliance by truck drivers. According to a report submitted to the…

  • How much would you pay? World’s most expensive license plates

Personalised licence plates are possibly one of the most decadent accessories that you can purchase for your car, but each one bears a specific meaning to their owners. Whether it’s a coded version of their name, a registration that contains more history than a public building, or something that holds a real value to their hearts; with a personalised plate comes a story. And often, a high price tag.

Some may say the only vehicle to recently rock the Focus’ throne is the Volkswagen Golf, but for sheer longevity, the Ford Focus is the undisputed champion. Since its introduction in 1998, it took a mere year for the Ford Focus to become the best seller in its class. Not only…

    Nissan, hot on the heels of their 2006 Qashqai success, released the next step of their crossover take over in the form of the Juke in 2009. This smaller, even more affordable car was the Japanese company’s take on the supermini, providing an SUV challenger to a smaller car market.
