Bentley Continental Flying Spur--Chicago Cars Direct
Detailed walkaround and test drive of a 2006 Bentley Flying Spur with Chris at Chicago Cars Direct. For roughly 40 nights a year, a small patch of blacktop in Downtown Los Angeles becomes the most sought after real estate in Southern California. It's a parking lot across the street from the Staples Center, home of the L.A. Lakers NBA team, and unless you're a season ticket holder or Kobe Bryant's mother you're not getting in. Or so we thought. We drive by to get a look before the game. There's a half million dollars' worth of cars in the front row alone, and a stone-faced attendant at the gate. Under normal circumstances we would have kept right on going, but we're driving a 2006 Bentley Continental Flying Spur sedan so we try our luck and turn in. The attendant takes one look at the car, smiles and waves us through the gate like he was expecting us. We try not to look surprised when he directs us into a space between a Ferrari F430 and an Aston Martin DB9. Another security guard standing watch assures us the Spur will be safe. Neither one asks to see our tickets. Just a few years ago this glimpse into how the other half lives would have never happened. Back then, Bentleys looked old and were driven by people who looked even older. Other than the Bentley name, the cars didn't have much going for them. The Bentley Continental Flying Spur is a different story. It looks modern and powerful and has the performance to match. Its $165,000 base price makes it less expensive than the older Arnage flagship, but it's the Flying Spur that gets people's attention. New blood Bentley owes all of its newfound popularity to Volkswagen. The General Motors of Germany took over Bentley in 1999, giving the British marque access to a new engines, chassis, and suspensions. Not to mention plenty of cash. And Bentley wasn't shy about using its new resources. According to its window sticker, 55 percent of the Flying Spur's parts come from Germany, many of them borrowed from Volkswagen's own Phaeton luxury sedan. At over 208 inches, the Flying Spur is 5 inches longer than the Phaeton and 3 inches longer than the 2007 Mercedes-Benz S550. The Bentley shares the same height and width as the new S-Class, but the Mercedes rides on a 4-inch-longer wheelbase. Compared to Bentley's Continental GT coupe, the Flying Spur has identical styling up front. Other than the obvious addition of its rear doors, the Flying Spur differs from the coupe mostly through its softer, straighter lines down the sides and in back. It's not as instantly recognizable as the GT, but it looks right for a sedan in this class. Determining which class isn't easy. Top-of-the-line Audi and BMW sedans barely crack $125,000 and Maserati's Quattroporte doesn't even top $100,000. Ultraluxury models like the Maybach 57 and Rolls-Royce Phantom cost more than twice as much. The Mercedes-Benz S65 AMG will be similar in price and performance when it goes on sale this summer, but until then the Flying Spur sits somewhere in the middle when it comes to high-dollar luxury sedans. Don't call it a Volkswagen The extra $65 grand the Flying Spur commands over the top-of-the-line Phaeton gets you more than a reskinned Volkswagen. Both cars use Volkswagen's 6.0-liter W12 engine, but the Bentley version has twin turbochargers, specially developed pistons and reworked cylinder heads. The result is 552 horsepower at 6,100 rpm compared to the Phaeton's 444 horses. Bentley's engineers also tuned the Flying Spur's engine to deliver its 479 pound-feet of torque at just 1,600 rpm. Continuously variable valve timing helps smooth out the power delivery and earn the engine Low Emissions Vehicle (LEV) certification. All that low-end torque makes the Flying Spur perform like it weighs only 2 tons instead of nearly 3. Our test car took just 4.8 seconds to reach 60 mph from a stop and 13.1 seconds to cover the quarter-mile. The Ferrari we parked next to is only two-tenths of a second quicker to 60. Bentley's kind of power The Flying Spur doesn't jump off the line, though. The throttle reacts softly, as if the engineers were worried that 552 hp might be too much to handle all at once. It could be if the Spur was as ferocious off the line as most other 500-plus-hp cars, but it's not. Permanent all-wheel drive is one reason. You could mat the pedal in a downpour and still not slip a tire. Its six-speed automatic transmission has a short 1st-gear ratio and even that's not enough to make the Spur feel anything but perfectly civilized under full acceleration. There are steering-wheel paddle shifters if you're up to changing gears yourself. They're not easy to reach, not quick to shift and they don't match engine speed when you downshift. In other words, they're useless for anything but showing off.

BMW M3 Competition SMG Coupe--Chicago Cars Direct
Detailed walkaround and test drive of a 2006 BMW M3 Competition Coupe with SMG Transmission presented by Chris Moran of Chicago Cars Direct. With colors like Laguna Seca Blue and Imola Red, there's no question as to where the BMW M3's aspirations lie. These famous racetracks would be fitting playgrounds for any car that promises such stratospheric levels of power and handling. Whether blasting up Tamburello at Imola or diving into the corkscrew at Laguna Seca, few cars in the world could attack a road course with the tenacity of those wearing the "M" badge of BMW's Motorsport division. Until the 2001 model year, we had to deal with the fact that as much as we loved those Motorsport machines, our European counterparts were getting versions far more powerful than ours. Their M3s boasted 317 horsepower, while ours made do with just 240. Not that we were complaining. Even with its detuned engine, the previous-generation M3 was still one of the best performance coupes available anywhere. But the grass is always greener on the other side, and U.S. enthusiasts couldn't help but wonder just how much better the M3 was in its Euro-spec trim. With the introduction of the current-generation BMW M3 for the 2001 model year, drivers had to wonder no more. The M3 is now the same whether you buy it in Stuttgart or San Francisco. Better yet, it's been blessed with an even more powerful 333-hp engine, a sturdier, more responsive suspension and slinkier bodywork that, we think, makes it one of the most stunning cars on the market. Like so many ultrahigh-performance cars of today, finding the limit of the M3's abilities takes more than just an empty road and the guts to hold the pedal down longer than usual. Fortunately, the 2006 BMW M3 gets along just fine in suburban environments, though be forewarned that the ride walks a very fine line between all-out performance and day-to-day drivability. Enthusiasts will find it pleasantly firm, but poseurs had better hold on to their cappuccinos. Body Styles, Trim Levels, and Options The 2006 BMW M3 in offered in both coupe and convertible form. Standard features on the coupe include 18-inch wheels with Z-rated rubber, automatic climate control, 10-way adjustable sport seats, leather and cloth upholstery, one-touch power windows, heated power mirrors, a CD player, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, automatic headlights, rain-sensing wipers and keyless entry. The convertible adds power seat adjustments and full leather upholstery; these items are optional on the coupe. Additionally, the drop top comes with a fully automatic soft top (with heated rear glass); a removable hardtop is available. There are a number of option packages available, the most interesting of these being the Competition Package, which outfits the coupe with some of the performance upgrades from the coveted European-market M3 CSL, including 19-inch forged alloy wheels, larger Michelin tires, stiffer shocks and springs, a quicker steering ratio, upgraded brake pads and rotors, a less intrusive M Track mode for the stability control system, and unique Alcantara and aluminum interior trim. Choosing this package deletes cruise control and steering wheel audio controls. Among the other extras are a sunroof, seat heaters, HID headlights, a navigation system, a premium sound system, parking sensors, BMW Assist and an alarm system. Powertrains and Performance The BMW M3 is propelled by a potent 3.2-liter, six-cylinder engine rated at 333 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque. A six-speed manual transmission is standard, while a six-speed sequential manual gearbox (SMG) is offered as an option. The SMG offers both manual and automatic driving modes, and although it is by definition a manual transmission, its clutch is electronically controlled, such that there's no clutch pedal. Drivers can use either steering column-mounted paddles or the shift lever to change gears in manual mode. Unlike other systems, SMG allows you to alter the quickness of the shifts, and in its most aggressive shift program, it's said to be faster than Ferrari's Formula One setup. Safety Safety features include four-wheel antilock disc brakes, stability control, front side-impact airbags, head curtain airbags for the front (coupe only) and a rollover protection system (convertible only); rear side-impact bags are optional. The BMW 3 Series earned a "Good" rating from the IIHS in 40-mph frontal-offset crash testing.

2008 BMW 650i Convertible Deep Sea Blue Metallic A2639
http://www.autosofpalmbeach.com/ Deep Sea Blue Metallic 2008 BMW 650i Convertible with Navigation, Sport Package, Head Up Display, Comfort Access System, Active Steering, Satellite Radio, and Logic 7 Stereo is one of the most eye-catching cars on the road. The 650i is a beautiful car that will draw many stares wherever you go. From its great sport package with stylish wheels to its awesome sound system with satellite radio, this car has everything you'll need for a beautiful, luxurious, and classy convertible that can be driven all year. Further, as a one-owner Carfax certified automobile, you can rest assured that this car was taken excellent care of with all its services handled on time. Plus, coming right out of sunny south Florida, it has no rust or other damage from the harsh winter elements. Let's see what this great car has to offer you. EXTERIOR: The body of your new 650i looks great covered in a luscious coat of DEEP SEA BLUE METALLIC paint. The color is absolutely beautiful and the perfect color to complement the outstanding design. The paint is in great shape with no scrapes, scratches or serious blemishes to mention. This great car has a fantastic engine to go with its great looks: a six speed automatic 4.8L DOHC V8 engine with 360 horsepower and 360 lb-ft of torque. This means that the car doesn't hesitate when your foot hits the gas pedal! The car's sport package (that retailed new at around $2,200) adds great wheels and tires and unique features on the inside! You'll love the way the car feels as you drive. The black soft top is in great shape with no rips or tears. It works perfectly and goes up and down with just an easy push of a button. Xenon adaptive automatic headlights outfit the front of the car for outstanding visibility in all driving situations. Rain-sensing windshield wipers are another great addition because they will turn on automatically when the heavens let loose. The power heated auto-dimming mirrors tilt down as you reverse so that you can see the ground as you back up. This car is also equipped with active steering which automatically adjusts the steering ratio depending on your speed. At low speeds it adjusts for easy navigation, and at higher speeds it adapts for stability. This is a great safety feature which also added $1,400 to the original price tag. This 2008 model has the remainder of its factory 50,000 mile basic and powertrain warranties good until 12/28/2011! INTERIOR: The interior is outfitted in very plush BLACK PEARL LEATHER upholstery complemented by wood trim. It's very likely your friends have never seen such a nice color combination before! The car smells clean and fresh with no foul odors, whether from smoke or anything else. The 14-way power front sport bucket seats feel comfortable and thanks to the sport package they also have thigh and lateral support! To help keep you comfortable there is dual-zone automatic climate control with auto air circulation and other great functions. If you take a look at the lower left of the windshield, you will see a very convenient read out of your speed and other car announcements provided courtesy of the Head Up Display. This great feature was a $1,200 addition and provides convenience and safety. One of the nicest features of the vehicle is the iDrive system with BMW navigation system. For navigation, you'll have turn by turn directions and maps so you can always get to your destinations easily and you'll know exactly where you are. Also housed in the same unit are on-screen visual controls for the climate, car options, and entertainment. The Logic 7 AM/FM with CD player and MP3 capabilities sounds absolutely superb for a top-notch listening experience. Our goal is to make sure the overall condition of the car is as close to new as possible. This means a full detail that includes polishing any light scratches and professionally touching up chips. All dings are professionally removed. While our cars are close-to-new, keep in mind that they are pre-owned and may show some signs of wear. We will be more than happy to go over the car panel-by-panel with you on the phone for extra details. Also, think of the great savings you will have with this purchase. The MSRP for this car new was $95,170 with all the great options! You can avoid paying too much money while still driving an awesome car. See the evidence of what many years of world class engineering can produce with your new 2008 BMW 650i Convertible!
