If you're a car enthusiast, chances are, you've seen a /DRIVE video, but you probably also saw that they were one of the first major channels that have moved to a premium model of content, meaning that each month, the subscriber gets charged to watch the high-quality videos the channel puts out.

Alex Roy is a man of many talents. He's a prolific writer, an accomplished presenter, and has a lot of seat time under his belt, as he held the transcontinental record for fastest drive from New York To Los Angeles for six years.

Rob Dahm loves cars - a lot. He also owns a wide range of cars, from his prized Lamborghini to his two insanely modified Mazda FD RX-7s. In this, the fourth episode of Offtrack, he explains how one car company could just be the spiritual successor to the discontinued rotary masterpiece.
BMWs are great cars for the most part. Their performance per pound make them a serious competitor in the market for people that want a thrilling driving experience.
