BMW’s so Thirsty

By Richard Hammond

IF you buy a copy of the Irish Daily Mirror and a second-hand BMW 7- Series with a big petrol engine, the newspaper will be worth more the next day.

Fuel prices have completely trashed the values of big, petrol- engined luxury cars but they sell in places where fuel is cheap - like the Middle East - so it's still worth making the things.

And BMW has announced the arrival of its new generation 7-Series in November. It's packed full of technology, including a night- vision system for spotting pedestrians. More details and prices to follow later.
