Green Go Kart: 2019 MINI Cooper S E Countryman ALL4 Test Drive Review

We’re living in the age of MINI 2.0. It started on April 26, 2001. That’s when the first new MINI made under BMW’s corporate ownership rolled off of the assembly line in Oxford, England. The Chili Red Cooper two-door with white roof and mirror caps bore an undeniable resemblance to the original Mini launched in 1959, but it was meant to lead the brand into the future.

If it weren’t that I’d have to come up with over $50k and get a divorce, I…

Absolute Riot to Drive: 2019 BMW M2 Competition Review

Predator, performance car, bulldog. That’s what I came away with after a week with the 2019 BMW M2 Competition. Now, popular wisdom says, that over the last 15 years or so, BMW has lost its way when it came to building exciting cars. While it’s obvious they can still build a fast, sexy car, what they’ve seemingly forgotten is that it’s the passion that ignites those who purchase them. That’s why this little M2 is so important, as not only was it an absolute riot to drive, but it gets…
