The review is admittedly nothing special. I was hoping that the other girl on the show, Verena Mai could have done the review. She's actually a professional drifter so she would have been able to push the car a bit.

I stopped watching after she said something like "major overhaul in 2006 and no changes for 2008". What a BS!

Thanks for posting the link heezy545i

That's the way I like it! Tamara knows her cars.

Only $63K for a fully loaded 550iA Sport, that's 47,000 Euros

Oh I know they are dirt cheap in the US as opposed to the rest of the world. I was just responding to the post that said "she knows her cars, $63K for fully loaded"

In the UK we don't pay ours.

Maybe that's where we're going wrong - job opportunities!
