Because it’s a dick move. Saturdays are the busiest day of the week, and the day when a salesperson has the best chance of selling a car. Salespeople get paid commission, obviously. If you come in on a Saturday just to get something for free, without even being in the market at all, you’re tying up a salesperson who…
I’ve literally went in and said I had no intention of driving or buying anything, I just wanted the gift card. They gave it to me and I went on my way. Didn’t waste their time or put miles on their cars.
You are supposed to adjust your steering wheel so it’s pointed at your chest. Cars just come ‘pre-loaded’ with the steering wheel pointed higher for taller people.
I’d totally watch a show where you solved auto-related mysteries. Call it Encyclopedia Brown Manual Wagon.
Two minutes later: [Headslap] I coulda had a V-8!

THIS... is my birthday party that no one came to.
Also their entry level interiors are garbage. A X1 or even 3 series is just awful now compared to what the other Germans (including VW!) are doing.
Agreed. They need to go back to basics. Just freaking offer the 3 series in 2 door, 4 door, convertible, and wagon models. The 5 in sedan and wagon. The 6 as a nice midsize coupe based of the 5 mechanicals but no shared body work. The 7 in sedan, with regular and XL wheelbases. Throw in an 8 every now and again as a…
They spent a ton of money building fancy carbon fiber bodies for the i3 and i8 but went with a super bizarre design for the i3 that only has short little suicide doors for the rear (making it much less practical for families). They also didn’t really manage to deliver enough range to make the i3 usable in countries…
I’m glad I don’t live by you.
Me, seeing this headline:
Style was one of the requirements.
The BMW i-brand is all about “sustainable mobility,” and throwing in a bigger, more powerful internal combustion engine with prominent exhaust pipes may not really communicate that.
This was definitely an ordered car, too. Notice the roof scoop and louvered fenders. He surely wasn’t walking in and picking up a car off the lot so a lot of the paperwork would have been handled ahead of time.
People in Philly are such garbage. Lived there three years, never going back.
The cars were very good, yet no one bought them. They were expensive. This is no different than BMW lowering the M-power products, AMG doing the same, and Audi continuing their S cars... they’re branding the mid-tier car (between the true V and the base CT4) with the performance badge and some parts.
We went on a trip together over the past weekend and a new Aventador parked next to us at a gas station.The dude was 6"+ with a bigass beer belly, and it was just beyond ridiculous. took him a solid 2 minutes to get out of it , and he immediatly complained about his back.
I’ve ridden and raced bicycles about 100,000 miles on mostly rural roads, I’ve also raced and enjoyed the hell out of cars. They’re not mutually exclusive, you elitist prick.
Most civilized place in the world. Ok. Go to... say myrtle beach and strike up a conversation with strangers. Compare that to new york in literally any part. One of these places people will treat you decent. It isn’t new york.
