Car and Driver chronicles the death of a car

Bloggers we may be, but we're still fans of good old fashioned long-form journalism – or what passes for it in this day and age. Yes, digital attention deficit disorder and the failing fortunes of print publishing have combined to largely neuter the art form, but there are still some publications willing to think high concept and go out and spend some shoe-leather on stories.

BMW officially announces pricing for 3-Series Coupe

This has been sitting in the queue for a day because we thought we had covered it a couple weeks ago. We were operating under the assumption the pricing of the BMW 3-Series Coupe that "leaked" out was accurate. It wasn't. It was close, but a few clams short of what the actual MSRPs will be.
