We’re back! After technical difficulties kept us off the air last week, we’ve returned with another excellent episode for your listening enjoyment. Tim was still unavailable due to moving, but we’re joined by a veteran guest of the show. Plenty of good discussion & interesting stories, including the Motor Trend comparison test between the 2011 Mustang GT & the BMW M3 Coupe, the first MINI Countryman, and more! All that plus more news & listener calls, this week on RoundelTable!
Thomas Mikl: Thomas is from St. Petersburg, FL. He is a BMW lover, technofile, and M3 driver for 2.5 years. He’s been hooked since an early age and only solidified on a trip to Munich for euro delivery for his dad’s 2000 528i sport and did 140mph (governed) on the Autobahn. Twitter: @TMikl
