So many beautiful BMWs on the streets of Nola these days. That means the streets must be getting better, and they are, slowly. But having always purchased used BMWs in cash, I have to wonder what it must be like to drive a leased BMW. I can only imagine that I would drive much differently. Owning a BMW to me as always meant "Bring Money With you" because a car meant to be driven is a car meant to be maintained as well. BMW owners historically are also unafraid to check a dipstick, and that too seems to be going away. Free maintenance sounds nice, but it's also ok to know what's going on and know how to fix things. That's the German way. Anyway, I hope folks are enjoying those new BMW as much as I enjoy my old ones.
