Test Drive: Dropping Off my 3 Series For a Week in a Loaner BMW 430i: the Setup for the Soon Coming i4 Electric

Sometime next year BMW will be introducing their first real non-compliant full production all electric car. It won’t look as funky as i3 does. It’ll actually look like a real normal car. And it’ll be based off the 4 series. So with my BMW in the shop AGAIN, and the dealer giving me a 430 coupe as a loaner, I decided to take this opportunity to give you a dynamic of what to expect from a 4 series electric by looking at the gas one and my car, a 3 Series, first.

Ford Mustang GT Review: A Hellcat Owner's Perspective

I recently spent a week driving a 2018 Ford Mustang GT fastback with the optional Performance Pack 1 and I thoroughly enjoyed my time in the track-focused pony car, but rather than just another review talking about the features of America’s bestselling sporty car, I will talk about the key aspects from the perspective of someone who daily drives a Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat.

Driving Distracted While AutoPilot, and the Dangerous Brinksmanship that Goes With It

ANALYSIS AND OPINION: I wonder if the people who are caught red handed being “distracted while AutoPilot” realize how lucky they are they got away with their crime. Unlike the people who I last wrote about who face the wrath of the NTSB and the courts for their tort who proclaim “my Tesla did it, not me,” “driving distracted while AutoPilot” is a crime of reckless endangerment, and most are getting away with it without realizing it.
