This Month's Featured Vehicle
From The Knauz Classic Car Museum
1982 Alfa Romeo Spider
This one is often referred to as the "Wedding Car". Back in 1982 when William Madden visited the Knauz Alfa Store in Lake Forest, a bride was not on the shopping list. Kim Knauz was his salesperson and not only sold him this car, but married him about a year later. When the car was traded back in almost 10 years ago, our body shop restored the vehicle, and William and Kim have been know to take it out on date nights

CERTIFIED PRE-OWNED MINI
FEELS LIKE THE FIRST TIME.
Has your automotive relationship lost its spark? Rediscover the thrill of the chase with a Certified Pre-Owned MINI. Every MINI NEXT vehicle is less than 5 years old and has less than 60,000 miles at the time of enrollment, and is reconditioned with only genuine MINI parts. We know this because each certified vehicle is rigorously inspected by trained MINI technicians, and backed by an additional 2-year/50,000-mile warranty on top of the 4-year/50,000-mile New Passenger Car Limited Warranty. So every MINI NEXT vehicle is covered for a total of up to 6 years or 100,000 miles (whichever comes first).* Plus you get our 24/7 Roadside Assistance Plan.**
In fact, MINI NEXT is the only official certification program that guarantees your pre-owned MINI will purr like the first day it rolled off the line. So you can feel good about getting swept off your feet and back onto the road.
**MINI NEXT Roadside Assistance Plan provides coverage for 2 years/unlimited miles starting at the expiration of the 4 year/unlimited mile MINI New Passenger Car Roadside Assistance Plan.

BMW / MINI Tire Centers
Now is the time to switch to winter tires
A winter tire provides the added peace of mind that comes from better grip and vehicle control, which can make all the difference in winter driving conditions.
Winter tires have deeper treads than All-Season tires to enable them to more easily travel through snow, and are composed of softer compounds designed to maintain grip and malleability at lower temperatures.
The addition of silica and other additives to the tire tread decreases wear and provides enhanced traction in wet conditions.
ABS systems are only as good as the traction that is available. In freezing conditions this may mean huge differences in braking distance
What is the Value of Safety? It’s a small price to pay to prevent your family from sliding off the road.
You don’t wear snow boots in the summer…
So why wear flip flops in the winter???
