Bmw 330i 2006 Car Review
I have to reveal up front that I own an older 3-series BMW, so I am quite aware of its abilities and drawbacks. And as many different types of cars that I drive, I am always happy to return to my baby. But when I got behind the wheel of the new 330i (Edmunds pricing at $39,184) I could tell that this machine was a sharp step up in performance within a quarter mile.
At my first ride in the driver?s seat, I couldn?t get over the ergonomics of the steering wheel. Every car has one, and I?ve handled a few unusual ones, but my grip has never felt more at home than with this 330i. (Unfortunately, it wasn?t a heated steering while like the 7-series, and it was quite cold outside.) Then BMW mates this steering wheel with very precise steering for a sedan-level car.
The German automobiles avoid the low-end torque that American makers? design, instead they offer a slower launch, but smoother, linear acceleration. And the silky 6-cylinder engine is particularly noticeable with a manual transmission in this car. BMW finally added a 6th gear for the stick shift, and I say …
The Best of the British British Cars to Be Seen In
When you think of the world’s greatest car brands there are quite a few manufacturers that spring to mind. Amongst which you could imagine the Italian Ferrari and the German BMW but whilst a lot of these may originate from foreign countries there are still a lot of great UK car brands that are extremely popular and have been for many years.
Unfortunately in recent years a lot of UK car manufacturers have either been bought or have folded due to the turbulence of the motor industry. Despite the sale of many brands to foreign companies there still remains a British heritage which enthusiasts won’t quickly forget.
Aston Martin is as British as James Bond himself, proved by the Aston being 007’s car of choice in the James Bond films (notwithstanding a brief switch to BMW and Ford in a few of the more recent films). Aston Martin is well known for making incredibly stylish supercars including the DB9 and the Vanquish. Aston Martin is one brand that has stood the test of time and part of this can be put down to its thoroughly British image.…

Rolls Royce Takes on Bentley in New Car Clash
Prepare for the car world’s Clash of the Titans!
All-new models from top British marques Rolls Royce and Bentley are going head to head to achieve the ultimate blend of power and refinement and take the title of best car in the world.Some may think that it’s overstating the case to suggest that the launch of Bentley’s imposing new Mulsanne is a strong contender for car event of 2010.
But a combination of the company’s reputation for exceptional engineering with the fact that the Mulsanne will be the first ‘grand Bentley’ the firm has developed for 80 years makes it hard to doubt that it will be a landmark motoring moment.
Set to be an even longer car than the Arnage it replaces, Bentley clearly intends its new four-door flagship to have ultimate road presence.Harking back to graceful Bentleys of old, but giving the look a modern, sleeker spin, the Mulsanne has a much more upright face than the firm’s smaller Continental and is dominated by a pair of huge round headlights together with a traditionally imposing broad, mesh grille.
But with a name that highlights the company’s ‘second home’ in …
Can The Road Disappear While Riding Your Motorcycle At Night
Have you ever been out on the road at night on your motorcycle and had the road just disappear? I have. It was the spookiest thing in the world, not to mention scary.
I was up in the mountains inColorado, having gone out for that year’s International Women & Motorcycling Conference, put on by the AMA, and was headed back toDenverlate at night. The conference was in Keystone and I had the option of going west on U.S. 6 to Dillon and then heading east on I-70 or heading east on 6 overLovelandPassand then catching I-70 on east. Let’s see: Mountain pass versus interstate, on my Suzuki Boulevard M90. Easy choice, I took the pass.
I knew I wasn’t going to be going very fast on this ride. There are too many deer out there to do anything but take it easy. And for the most part I had the road all to myself. When the occasional car came up behind me I would just flash my brakes once briefly to make sure they saw me and stayed close to the shoulder-although on a mountain road like this there really …

Used Mercedes Benz – Getting on the Car Efficiency Bandwagon
As we all know, the ozone layer and its associated keywords are fast becoming an obsession in the world of motoring, and indeed in all other industries as well. And with good reason too – we are fast running out of gas and oil, and are contributing to global warming at a rate that we are having real trouble reversing. Perhaps more relevantly, being inefficient with our fuel costs us ever increasing amounts of money – money that we would very much like to keep in our bank accounts rather than spending.
Becoming more efficient is therefore the big challenge for the car industry, and Mercedes Benz are one of the latest car companies to get on the bandwagon and introduce a system to do most of the hard carbon footprint reducing work for you. If you are planning on buying a used Mercedes Benz, but want a more economical car, it may be worth waiting until these babies hit the used Mercedes Benz dealerships in order to scoop yourself that massive depreciation saving.
Mercedes Benz call their package of energy saving and fuel reducing features BlueEFFICIENCY, citing “special responsibility” …
