2018 BMW i3s: The little electric luxury car that’s really going places

Battery only. 180-miles total. That’s not bad, but, yeah, well, call me old-fashioned…. That’s not going to take me very far in my gas-guzzling life. I drink a lot and get a lot of gas, and I’m still trying to…

2018 BMW X2: Station wagon meets luxury, and it’s impressive

2017 BMW X4 M40i: The ultimate driving machine and cool af

2017 BMW 230i keeps it simple [video review]

The 230i is my second-favorite BMW. What’s the first, you ask? Well, that would be the i8 plug-in hybrid, which is in an entirely different league of cool altogether. I like the 230i because it is the kind of car…
