Your vehicle, sir
So I got this car. Consumer Reports says the BMW 3 series sucks now, so after 13 years I have to get a different kind.
It's a good car, it's fine. But it is somewhat...dull? Some driver's notes from Road and Track when they drove it back in 2014:
- David Gluckman: This car was good when it came out in 2009, and it's still very good now. Usually, when something's on the Grim Reaper's doorstep, you can find a fault or two that need to be addressed with the next generation. I really can't here.
- John Krewson: If it lacks some of the bells, whistles, open-grain wood, and staggering power of bigger Audis, that's okay. You don't notice. You're too busy not being bothered while the car just plain works.
- Alex Kierstein: It's fast, it's comfortable. It has a highly competent automatic and a great interior design. The seats are fantastic. It looks pretty sharp. Why can't I get all that excited about it?
A hat. I was thinking of a hat. What hat? I asked my semiconscious self, as I tossed and turned. What hat?!
Then it dawned on me.

I had purchased the Joubert-mobile. If he were real and here today, this is exactly the car Joubert would drive, although he might think the S-Line badging a little too distinctive.
I wonder where I can get a plaid jacket and hat like that.
And then I just need a Mauser C96 for the trunk...
