The moral of the story is simple, Love the life you live and live the life you love. So when the delayed voicemail came in that I hadnt signed up to join my auto comrades in Lisbon, Portugal to play around with the nucleus of the BMW family -- the 5 Series -- I immediately switched gears faster than their new “Sport Automatic” 8-speed transmission, cleared my schedule and commenced working on my Portuguese. Obrigado (thank you) BMW was my initial thought, for the Bimmer 5 definitely makes its case to start at shooting guard on Automotive Rhythms’ all-time starting five (no pun intended). The enlightenment of experimenting with the 5 Series on the glorious Oceanside roads of Cascais and Estoril racetrack in Portugal is what I deem a profound moment of exposure!
