    I wonder what got under your skin to cause HGM to include policy statements throughout the system. When I worked at the General Motors Technical Center, and later at Consumer Reports (CR), I was aware that cars borrowed from the Big Three were NOT representative. First, as we joked, the cars were “dipped in silicone” so that nothing squeaked. Tires were super-round and balanced. Everything that was adjustable was brought up to “spec” or better.
    At CR, people were sent out far afield to dealerships to find the specific car to be tested. When it was located, our buyer paid for it and put the car on our trailer to be brought in for examination and testing.
    I am glad to see the following at HGM. I hope you are aware of my concerns above.

We are also committed to transparency, and to that end we have created this policy describing our practices around accepting loaned cars, expense reimbursement or other things of value from the companies’ whose products we review.

    OMG, 2011? Will we have to endure this awful generation of 3 series for that long? Mercedes and Audi have an amazing oportunity to take BMW's mindshare.

    Nice post...I think that BMW will be able to hold their own for a long, long time.

    you were willing to spend no less than 50 grand to get yourself a 3-series that doesn’t look like the neighbor’s, or worse, the free-loaner.http://www.rodban.in.th/
