This year's Cars and Coffee event at Santana Row in San Jose has just kicked off. This past weekend there was a big turnout with a focus on Porsche's. There were some amazing rides with a 918 and 675LT leading the pack.
The BMW M3/M4 is a sports sedan and as such it is lower than a typical sedan from the segment. Compared to a 3 series or any other typical daily driver you see on the roads, it will be a bit lower. However, with that said I don't think it's as low as some make it out to be. For me, I just get used to it and drive differently
This time around at the BMW M car meetup, there weren't that many cars there. Might have just been a bad weekend I suppose? The usual crowd came out and it was nice getting to meet some new people and check out what everyone's been doing to their vehicles. A few Porsche Boxster Spyders decided to join us as well. Check out the rest of the crowd below.
The last review of the BMW M3/M4 from Motor Trend was quite disappointing coming from an M3 owner. Both hosts bashed the M3 for its suspension, lack of steering feedback etc etc.
Anyways, Motor Trend seemed to have quite alot of good to say about the new competition package that seems to put the M3 back to where it should have been from the start. The difference is quite big according to the hosts but is it enough to beat the Alfa Romeo? Watch the video and find out!
Have you ever wondered how so many people drive nice cars like a Mercedes E350? Perhaps they're lawyers or doctors or perhaps they understand which vehicle to buy and when to buy. So let me start off by saying that I realize that living and working in Silicon Valley puts my perspective out of wack a bit. Average salaries and the types of vehicles that people drive around here don't represent what is happening in other parts of the country, whether for better or worse. It's typical to see a bunch of Toyota and Honda vehicles on the highways but it's also quite common to see luxury vehicles such as Audi, Mercedes or BMW. In the luxury market, I personally see alot of Audi A4, BMW 328i, and Mercedes E350 around. It's not uncommon to see a few M3 or Maserati Ghibli on the highways around here either. But I want to touch on why I think that there's so many luxury cars in the Bay Area and whether it's possible for an average person to afford such a car.
