    They junked iDrive, removed the turn signal stalk since it never gets used anyway, added a free case of hair gel with every purchase, and cut $20,000 from the price. Not really. Hey, another BMW with Munich plates photographed in Arizona, this one on the road to Mt. Lemmon outside Tucson. Seismic shift?

  • Eric I would like one of each, please. But make that a '641/2 Mustang and a 1970 240Z
