Mini-E and 370Z

October 31, 2009

Adam and Dan take a look at two very different cars. First is the Mini-E, an all electric car that you can lease from BMW, good performance in the nice Mini packaging but at a bit of a price. The next car they look at is the splendid 370Z. The car boasts larger engine, more HP, and some slick electronics to make the ‘Z’ car a top performer as well as a good value.
