I've always thought that after Mercedes found success 'inventing' a new segment ("four-door coupes") in 2005 with the CLS, the other Germans have been scrambling to replicate that success by being first-to-market with weird, genre-busting variations. So 5-Series Gran Turismo, A5 Sportbacks, you name it — they are… » 11/14/14 10:04am 11/14/14 10:04am

Kind of a scummy move, IMO. » 10/30/14 12:05pm 10/30/14 12:05pm

Haha, I was going to do a similar list, and mine would be very different. Because of my own stupid 'personal code', it would be iPhone shots only, original art only. So all of these would be out. These are all great pics, but again, my own weird philosophy is that Instagram is a different medium than your photo… » 10/21/14 11:08am 10/21/14 11:08am
