It was Christmas morning and I was running late to see my daughter. Here in Toronto we had just emerged from the ice storm and I still didn't have power so I was crashing on my friends couch, and mega irritable as I hadn't slept well in 4 days. I am driving to the highway and everyone is moving at a snails pace so… » 4/10/14 1:38pm 4/10/14 1:38pm

Mercedes S class, the trunk can fit anything you want, the seats are comfortable enough to sleep in (and trust me, the car becomes a second home as getting a baby to sleep you quickly learn to take them for a drive), its quiet inside and the rear windows have curtains built in to keep the sun off your kids face. Also… » 4/04/14 12:49pm 4/04/14 12:49pm

For a sports car, the Audi TT. I was looking at every little sports car on the market a few years back and never thought of the TT...then I had to help my mechanic drop off a car one day and drove one, and shocked myself at how low I could get the seat. I am 6'4 » 3/27/14 2:05pm 3/27/14 2:05pm

The first CTS/CTS-V. My dad ordered a CTSV from the dealer in 05 (his 5th Caddy since 92) and he showed up to take delivery, got in the car and saw it was a manual and turned to the dealer and said "Cadillacs don't come in manual" and then re-did the order for a CTS with a sport package and an auto. When he told me this… » 3/26/14 12:08pm 3/26/14 12:08pm

Any "waterless" wash spray. I do a lot of marketing work in the automotive world and I refuse every time to work with one of these companies because I don't believe in them. Water is an essential part of a car wash...and with the winter salt, you need to hose down your car 360 to get an effective clean. » 2/21/14 11:41am 2/21/14 11:41am

McLaren is the brand that makes me excited as much as it does make me hate supercars. I had a poster of the F1 on my wall when I was a kid, so when they announced they were making a new one I was foaming at the mouth. It's released, it looks like Ford helped style it based off the F1 and it lost its "cool" touches. It… » 2/21/14 10:51am 2/21/14 10:51am

The Toyota Camry Taxi...I despise these things. Unlike the Ford Crown Vic that was designed for cop use, the Camry back seat was designed to cart around kids...not drunk ass fat people. The Camry lasts forever, I was in one this weekend that had 400,000kms on the odo, and the back seat felt like a bean bag chair. If… » 2/05/14 2:13pm 2/05/14 2:13pm

As a Canadian who has dealt with his fair share of terrible drives your story has one large glaring problem...you prepared wrong. You're in a BMW 335 so you have a little bit of coin most likely, you should have rented a hotel room. That's why I did last winter when Toronto got some freezing rain. I was probably the… » 1/30/14 6:56pm 1/30/14 6:56pm

Everything you need, nothing you don't...this is what I would get. BMW paint is good and the car looks great in white. Inside you need real leather with the red stitching and go with the brushed aluminum as BMW has horrible "all black" interiors. Cold weather package is a must, that heated steering wheel is worth 700 on… » 1/24/14 2:57pm 1/24/14 2:57pm

Everyone loves to crap on Toronto these days because our mayor smoked crack...that Police livery was from the 70's and 80's, and I am sure there was worse picks out there from that era. The Toronto cop cars are pretty badass these days and the livery does double duty as reflective stickers so their cars are super easy… » 1/21/14 11:24am 1/21/14 11:24am

I'm sorry but this is a big "waaaaaaaa I'm a big baby piece" As a guy who has gone to press days at car shows I laugh at the perks journalists get and then complain about! The free lunch wasn't that good, VW's usb key is only 2gb or "they are only serving free booze from 4-6pm, that's bull!" » 1/14/14 10:46am 1/14/14 10:46am
