How Much Is My Car Worth after a Car Accident? What's My Car Worth?

  What’s my car worth after a car accident? This isn’t the sort of thing I normally write. But, apart from our usual car reviews and watch news, I thought I’d write something that’s actually useful. When I talk to people about TickTickVroom, there are a couple of questions that crop up in the conversation… What car should I buy? What’s a good watch? I have this watch, what do you think...

Four Cylinder Fast Cars Maximum Performance, Minimum Engine

Maximum Performance, Minimum Engine Honda Civic Type R Concept and the Top 10 Best Four Cylinder Performance Cars   Today (or rather yesterday in France) at the Paris Motor Show, Honda has continued their… um, let’s say… extended unveiling of the next-gen four cylinder Honda Civic Type-R. And, in the tradition of the Acura NSX Type-R and Acura Integra Type-R (both badged as Hondas in Europe), this latest über...

10 Weirdest Production Cars, Ever By Far the Strangest Cars to Ever Roam the Streets

I got to thinking about the 10 weirdest production cars. I spend a lot of time talking about the most beautiful, powerful and incredible examples of automotive design and engineering on this site. From limited edition Bugatti Veyrons to classic Jaguar XKEs to the latest offering from Mercedes-AMG, there are cars that boggle the mind in terms of their sheer brilliance.   But, then there’s the other side of the coin…...

MINI Superleggera Vision Concept: A MINI Coupe We Actually Want

This is the MINI Superleggera Vision.  And, it looks like the MINI Coupe everyone was hoping for when MINI announced they were making a two-door, two-seater a few years back.  Unfortunately, it isn’t headed to production.   The MINI Superleggera Vision concept car is, just that, a concept designed to show off beautiful one-off coachwork craftsmanship for MINI for the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este 2014 on Lake Como in...

Top Seven Cars You Can Buy with the Average Tax Return

Today is April 15th… Tax Day… A day so lamented many people would opt for choice “A” of Benjamin Franklin’s quote: “In this world nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes.”  However, there are those few, those lucky, lucky few who get some of their hard-earned dollars returned to them after filing their income taxes.  According to the IRS, the average tax return is somewhere...

2013 Year in Review… Cliche, Isn’t It…

So, not only did we survive December 21st, 2012, we’ve made it all the way through 2013.  HA!  Take that Mayans!  Now that it’s 2014 (2014, weird, isn’t it?), I thought I’d do the most cliché thing blog-ily possible.  This is a TickTickVroom.com 2013 Year in Review post.   2013 was a banner year for TTV… a new, fancy-schmancy website, a bunch of cool road and track tests (sooooo much fun) and some...

2015 BMW M3 Sedan and BMW M4 Coupe: Twice the M Fun [Video]

New BMW M3 time is like Christmas.  It’s when all of the wishes of sublime speed and surefooted performance dreamt in the minds of little petrol-heads everywhere come true.  It makes me all warm and cozy… like sitting in a bolstered leather seat with the butt-warmers turned up.   Only this time, BMW is gracing the world with not just one new M car, but two.  Yep.  Two.  BMW officially introduced (on paper at least) the 2015 BMW...

BMW M235i Racing: Bimmer’s New Factory Racer

At 322 horses and 332 pound-feet of torque, the 2014 BMW M235i is already a lot of car.  Most people would be more than happy with its 0-60 mph time of 4.8 seconds.  But, the BMW M235i isn’t for most people.  It’s for those who think the best days are track days and the best track car is a BMW.   BMW took the 2 Series and stripped out pretty much everything an amateur or semi-pro racer wouldn’t need.  The BMW...

2014 BMW 2 Series: Bimmer Doubles Down [Video]

The BMW 1 Series is dead.  Long live the BMW 2 Series.  I have mixed feelings about that statement.  Drive-wise, I was fan of the 1 Series, especially the 135i.  It was an incredibly fun car to throw around… tight, nimble and quick as the dickens.  Looks-wise, it wasn’t the loveliest of cars.  As a matter of fact, it looked like it had a potbelly.  So, as long as the 2014 BMW 2 Series drives as well (or better) as the...

MINI Countryman and MINI Paceman in Frozen Black: MINI Goes Matte

Matte paint has been all the rage for a few years now.  Not surprising, since a well-done matte finish looks great and can make an already pulchritudinous (word of the day app) car even better.  Several years ago, BMW was at the vanguard of the matte finish trend and has been offering “Frozen” editions of their cars for some time now, albeit in very limited numbers. As the latest member of the BMW Group to hop on the matte...
