New and Used Chevrolet and JAGUAR in Greensboro, NC Now that Jaguar’s F-type fleet includes six distinct models, picking one that best suits your fancy can be daunting. The coupes excel in aesthetics and practicality, the convertibles are more fun. Venturing beyond that body-style fork, this test of a V-6 S coupe should assist your smart purchase decision.
The $77,925 S coupe lives at the sensible end of the price range; it is $12,000 more than the base hardtop, $22,000 less than the 550-hp R coupe, and $15,000 less than the most powerful convertible. What you get here is the aluminum-intensive body and chassis common to all F-types, a ZF eight-speed paddle-shifted automatic (a manual is coming soon), and a 3.0-liter supercharged V-6 boosted to 380 horsepower. Spending the extra $12,000 over the base coupe means [...]
New and Used Chevrolet and Cadillac in Greensboro, NC
The new Cadillac ATS coupe is the lovely, delightfully adept product of a Hobson’s choice. Luxury-coupe sales are stagnant, yet here comes a new luxury coupe because there are really no alternatives. At least the new ATS coupe is a hottie that’s gratifying to drive.
Here is the backstory: It’s so expensive to engineer a new platform that no company does it for just one mainstream model. After the high-volume sedan is developed, its guts usually get stuffed into another model as quickly and cheaply as possible. That leverages the component set with yet another new product that can reach a different customer, bringing in more sales at relatively little cost.
Thus, the BMW 3-series sedan, at which the four-door ATS is squarely aimed, begets a [...]
Tesla Model S P85D Gets AWD; 0-60 MPH in 3.2 Seconds
The camera does everything from seeing other cars to reading speed limit signs. Normal fare for luxury cars. Except it will also do a lane change for you just by pressing the turn signal stalk.
Last night, Elon Musk took the wraps off the new Tesla Model S. Dual motors and all-wheel drive don’t just make it faster, a new sensor array will make it safer too. Let’s break out each innovation, figure out what it is and how it works.
Dual Motors: Putting the “D” in the Tesla Model S P85D, an electric motor has been added to the front of the car, driving those wheels. Previously, the Model S was rear-wheel drive only.
That motor develops 221 bhp, taking the car’s [...]
Overview: The M3 is a legend in the world of performance cars, giving enthusiasts everywhere reason to speak in gushing superlatives whenever given the chance. It’s even better now that the M3 has had a heart transplant in the guise of a twin-turbo 3.0-liter inline-six that makes 425 hp and 406 lb-ft of torque; it replaces the previous model’s 414-hp 4.0-liter V-8. To help you avoid confusion, the M3 badge is now applied only to sedan models; coupe and convertible models now wear the new M4 designation.
Sublime handling, turbo torque, baby DTM rear fender flares, comfortable all day long.
Bland steering, almost 85 large as seen here.
VEHICLE TYPE: front-engine, rear-wheel-drive, 5-passenger, 4-door sedan
PRICE AS TESTED: $84,650 (base price: $62,925)
ENGINE TYPE: twin-turbocharged and intercooled DOHC 24-valve inline-6, aluminum block and [...]
Overview: Once upon a time, the 5-series was a tactile and agile hot rod for the autobahn; today, it is merely a roomy, luxury conveyance. All engines are turbocharged: the diesel inline-six; gasoline four-cylinder, inline-six, and V-8, and the gas-electric hybrid; each pairs with an eight-speed automatic. The gas six features a rare manual gearbox, and all but the hybrid offer all-wheel drive. We’re not fond of the precise yet numb steering, and options can push the price past that of a 7-series. Pros and Cons of the 2014 BMW are that it shoves hard, even at low rpm; virtually free of turbo lag; hushed mechanicals. Some cons are that is it a Fuel-obsessed transmission, numb steering, doesn’t feel any smaller than a 7-series.
VEHICLE TYPE: front-engine, rear-wheel-drive, 5-passenger, 4-door sedan
Save yourself a pot of gold by taking your BMW to a local independent BMW repair shop.
It can be a wee bit frustrating when your BMW is in need of servicing and you aren’t sure where to take it for quality repairs that won’t cost you a pot of gold.
Taking your BMW to a local independent BMW mechanic, versus the dealer, might just be your lucky charm because it can save you money and enable you to build a relationship with a trained technician working on your vehicle.

No, not because of magic or that 4-leaf clover you picked out back, but because OEM parts are not marked up as much and because indy shops have lower hourly rates since overhead [...]
According to this study, the most aggressive drivers are men, ages 35-50, who drive blue BMWs. The study also found that the most aggressive times on the roads are at 5:45pm on Fridays and the Monday morning commute. Imagine that!
In the study of 2,837 motorists, Land Rovers, Audis, Subarus and Vauxhalls were also on the “most aggressive” list, and the colors of black, silver, green and red followed the angry blue.
Drivers most often expressed road rage by shouting and swearing, followed by erratic driving and obscene gestures. Motorists were asked the pick the make and colour of car from which they have experienced the most incidents of road rage – and blue BMWs came out on top.
George Charles of VoucherCodesPro said: ‘During peak periods of traffic, whether it be the Monday morning school run or the hectic rush hour on a Friday evening, it is all too easy to allow the common [...]

You don’t have to take your BMW to the dealer to maintain your warranty.
Let’s face it, BMW repairs can be expensive and when you buy that new or used BMW from the dealership, you want to make sure your BMW is covered with a vehicle warranty if anything should go wrong and need repairs.
It’s common to hear that once you purchase your BMW with a warranty, scheduled maintenance and repairs need to be completed by the dealership or else it voids the warranty. This is quite the myth and unfortunately, many people believe it to be true.
Your Rights Under the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act
According to the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act of 1975, vehicle manufacturers can’t tell you, the consumer, where to have your scheduled maintenance and repair work done that is under warranty.
