My gf bought a 1 year old X1, M-Sport for just under $30K (RWD). This was after almost buying a new CX-5 Touring. She's really happy with her decision. » 3/17/15 2:36pm 3/17/15 2:36pm

FWIW - the car in that picture.... I own it. I think they're beautiful. Even after living with it for quite a long time, I still think it's good looking. » 3/03/15 2:49pm 3/03/15 2:49pm

If you were doing something illegal and you saw a camera, would you still do the illegal thing? No, you'd move exactly one block away and do the illegal thing. Unless you want to put one on every block in Canoga Park, a speed camera won't help anything. » 2/26/15 8:43pm 2/26/15 8:43pm
