Morning Topless Motoring

Quietly driving through the farmland, not too far from Habit HQ, with Gumby’s (the Laguna Green E30 project) top down at a leisurely pace is incredibly relaxing. Maybe every E30 doesn’t need an engine swap, or even a manual transmission. Heresy, I know, but there’s something to be said for […]

Our Cars

Nose Job

When the new BMWs with their monstrous grilles hit the scene a while back, many of the BMW faithful lost their shit over the new design language. A proliferation of memes hinting that soon the grille would be bigger than the car itself hit the internet. Oh the horror. If […]
