Mother's Day is around the corner and, though most of us will be forking over hastily purchased cards, it would be nice to get something extravagant. Assuming money was no object, what car would you buy your mom?
My mother currently drives a Mazda3. It's a great car but it's not something particularly luxurious. She's got to keep up with Ray's mom and her Cadillac, after all. Since I'm not buying a car for myself it's important to get my mom something she'd like, not something I'd like her to want. The BMW Z4 sDrive35is is a ridiculous name, but the hard-top convertible sports car gives her the convertible she wants, the power she'd enjoy and the luxury she deserves. Plus, my mom's first generation American with a mother from Munich so she'll keep it in the family that way.
Get your mother something nice. It's almost Mother's Day.
