These things are actually rather terrible to drive, and let's not talk about built quality. I get it, it's rare in the US, but that alone doesn't make it desirable. » 3/31/15 4:20pm Today 4:20pm

All I know is that Merc used this design to keep them from getting dirty too easily/still get good visibility when dirty. Maybe Pontiac had similar intentions. » 3/31/15 3:38pm Today 3:38pm

I think that people who buy Camrys (or is the correct plural "Camries") in the US don't take bold moves but want to see themselves ... Zzzzzzz ..... zzzzzz .... zzzz » 3/30/15 6:09pm Yesterday 6:09pm

Wow, today really is "express your creativity" day!

After posting about the unusual zebra crossing in Düsseldorf, I went grocery shopping and saw this Forester that a free spirit "left" (the term parking really doesn't apply here) blocking the exit. Nobody inside or somewhere near it. This liberated, outside the box thinking gave me and a lot of other drivers the… » 3/30/15 11:55am Yesterday 11:55am

Interesting take at a zebra crossing

While most people would probably see this as a classic "You had only one job" fail, I see an expression of artistic freedom. Why follow the accepted norm when you can express yourself in so many different ways? Picasso managed to get the front AND the back of his nudes in one two-dimensional picture, and everybody… » 3/30/15 10:42am Yesterday 10:42am

Mercedes to built Pickup - Not for US

According to the reputable news source Der Spiegel, Mercedes wants a slice of the pickup market. Their commercial vehicle division be assigned to this task, but it is unclear which platform they will use. And of course, it won't be for the US market. http://www.spiegel.de/auto/aktuell/d... » 3/27/15 10:34am Friday 10:34am

HW 2015 Caddy v.s. Siku 198x Caddy

Today, I found out to my great delight that the HW Caddies have touched European soil. This is one of the new models I've been really looking forward to. I love it! » 3/26/15 4:33pm Thursday 4:33pm

05 is a bad year for the E60. The center display can die (no sat nav, AC, radio, etc...) and has to be reset at the dealership. In my stepdad's 05 this happened evry 2-3 months. In 07 or so they revised the system and made it bulletproof. » 3/26/15 3:21pm Thursday 3:21pm

Can We Puhleeeze Get Clarkson Out Of Our Collective System?

Look, I get it! Some of us (me included) really like him, TG the way we knew it for over a decade is now dead. Shocking! BUT! It just gets tiresome to scroll through this sea of "opinions" (opinions are like a-holes, everybody has one) and "I know who should replace him/know how to fix TG" posts to sift out the REAL… » 3/25/15 8:03pm Wednesday 8:03pm

08 might be a good year for an E60. My stepdad had an 05?? in which the center screen would go dead every few months. No sat-nav/radio/AC. The whole system had to be rebooted at the dealer only to fail again soon. His newer E61s have been trouble free when it comes to that. » 3/25/15 6:15pm Wednesday 6:15pm

They probably have to carry on on presidential orders. To keep up appearances, Russian pride... and so on. The bosses would probably have an "accident" if they just closed shop. » 3/25/15 3:09pm 3/25/15 3:09pm
