    Couldn't agree more about loud bikes. I don't understand how in 2013 with all of the other stuff you can't do (you can't even supersize your meals any more right?) that you can still have motorcycles that raise the dead. If someone ran for mayor and the only thing they promised to do was eliminate loud motorcycles - I'd vote for him or her in a heartbeat. At least it's one thing that could actually be accomplished, as opposed to all of the other empty promises.

    I don't understand how someone can do that every 2 am in New York and not draw sniper fire

    For a second I actually thought about buying a BB gun to shoot at these assholes before I snapped out of it and realized that no matter how much I hated these douchenozzles, they weren't worth spending time in jail for.

    there's a fairly big condo unit at the end of the block that has lots of families in it. I wonder if they've tried to take action.

    There was a silver one sitting on the floor at my local dealership about 2 weeks ago. At first I didn't know what it was and scratched my head because I thought BMW did away with the "is" nomenclature. As my aging synapses began to fire, I vaguely recalled reading an article about it in Car & Driver.

    Shit was nice

    Shit is really fast (7 second overboost function that pumps out around 370 lb*ft of torque) and sounds amazing with the performance exhaust.

    Have you ever been driving and attempted to change lanes only to jerk back at the last second because a vespa silently glided up next to you? Harley dude will never have that problem

    Fuck Harley Davidson's and their ilk. They are nothing but a nuisance. In DC they descend upon the area during Memorial Day... and like 99% of them are not vets, they just want to smoke meth and pose.

    I still can't believe it. Bought it for $16K, drove it for two years and sold it for $14K. WIN!
    The new i8.

    Lame, though its a good looking car.

    They should bring back the M1. The 8 series was a dog, now they want to "reinvigorate" it?

    I guess the M1 was a dog in its own way, but nostalgia works better with an extra decade or two.
