The List: The Red BMW - A Retrospective


The List: The Red BMW - A Retrospective

Posted Dec 23rd 2013 3:14PM

We can't help but use this time of year to look back at the days before and reminisce about friends who are no longer in our lives. For The List, Jessi and Patrick were often joined by a little, red BMW 3 Series that, at times, felt like a third host of the show. Having been bought used for just...

    The List #0325: Buy A Used Car Online
    1339527480

    Buying a used car online has become a new rite of passage in the Internet Age. eBay Motors, Craiglist and a myriad of other online auto shopping sites facilitate the ritual, and the need for a new set of wheels is all the motivation that's required. We found ourselves with just such a need, ...

    The List #0051: Build a Car
    1338308880

    Building your own car is another activity that viewers often request we cover on The List. Assembling a kit car or doing a ground-up restoration of a relic barn find seemed like obvious choices, but weren't very practical. So we donned our thinking caps and came up with a cool alternative to the ...

    The List #0187: Escape an Automotive Attack
    1337126220

    It's one thing to protect yourself on the road against bad drivers who might cut you off or ride your bumper on the highway. It's quite another to do that when those drivers have guns and want to kidnap the diplomat in your back seat. While the latter scenario may sound unlikely, many drivers in ...

    The List #0200: Drive 200 MPH
    1335887820

    We keep track of every idea that you submit for The List. Of the hundreds we get after each episode airs, one is without question at the top of everyone's list: drive 200 miles per hour. Despite the first production car eclipsing 200 mph back in the mid-'80s, we thankfully aren't yet jaded by ...

    The List #0041: Attend A Major Car Auction
    1334678220

    When you think of major car auctions, you probably think of Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale. That's the one that came to mind for us, which is why we sent Jessi and Patrick to experience its sights and sounds this past January. Not only did they come away with what it's like to be inside the big ...

    The List #0032: Go Ice Racing
    1333468620

    Despite the unusually warm winter we're having this year, we couldn't pass up the opportunity to have Jessi and Patrick check ice racing off The List. So we sent them to New York to meet our good friend and ice-racing expert, Engadget.com editor-in-chief Tim Stevens, for an inside look at this ...

    The List #0567: Drive The PCH
    1332259020

    In case you hadn't noticed, we're now actively using your suggestions for new episodes of The List. We started the series with a few of our own, but suggestions from viewers like you have been flooding our inbox since the first episode. Race in the 24 Hours of LeMons? That was your idea. Visit an ...

    The List #0060: Visit an Automotive Museum
    1331053080

    Not every item on your list of 1,001 Car Things To Do Before You Die will involve racing through the night across Baja, crushing cars with a tank or surviving the world's silliest test of endurance. This week we slow things down a bit with an oft requested item for The List: Visit an automotive ...

    The List #0777: Attend SEMA
    1329845400

    Every year in November, the Specialty Equipment Market Association hosts a trade show out in the desert. You know it as the SEMA Show in Las Vegas. Held in the sprawling square footage of the Las Vegas Convention Center, the SEMA Show is where just about every automotive aftermarket company and ...

    The List #0024: Race in the 24 Hours of LeMons
    1328635560

    While we've already sent Jessi and Patrick to a professional driving school, there's no way their on-track training could prepare them for the the 24 Hours of LeMons. This relatively recent phenomenon of endurance racing with $500 beater cars has grown into a 20-race season for 2012 that, as the ...
