  3. John Strom gave an update on the Cabot Cove Coastal Cruise. The first day down to Marin was uneventful but on Saturday we had to endure rain, fog and cyclists. All in all, the group had a great time.
  4. BMW is trying to convince the US to use cameras instead of mirrors on cars. Currently, the US requires a rear view mirror as a minimum where BMW wants to put mirrors on the exterior as well as replace the rear view mirror with a camera. By using cameras, you would no longer have blind spots.
  5. BMW has just presented the Hommage concept car to celebrate the original 2002.
  6. The BMW 2 series for 2017 will have two new engines. The new four cylinder turbo charged version and the 3 liter 330 hp version
