ADL TV | BMWs on Block Island

DECISIONS, decisions.

Sometimes life presents the nice kind of hard choices.

Harvard or Yale? Paris or Rome? Oil or gold?

If you had to boil the benefits of both down to experiencing just one long term – and both presented impeccable qualifications to justify your expenditure of time and money… how could you choose?

Would you opt for Yale only to miss Beantown’s nightlife? Would you vie for Paris and do without Villa Borghesi? Or what if you put all your chips down on gold only to watch oil futures rocket beyond the horizon?

The debate between which BMW convertible the 1-Series or 3-Series, presents a similarly luxurious dilemma. To buy both would be a foolhardy expenditure of $100K. And at $100K, there are many more enticing cars that you should be considering- used Aston Martins and Ferraris come to mind.

So sense and sensibility dictate that you should opt for just one BMW drop top for your garage. Trouble is…or was… I just couldn’t. Whether it was color choices or amenities or character – both the 1er and 3er present strong, if endearing cases.

That’s why in this segment, we took the 128i and 328i to Block Island (a scenic spit of hills off Rhode Island’s coast) and asked SoCal native and one-time Infiniti owner Alexandra Harbushka to judge which convertible might entice her to switch to a roundel badged car.

To say the least, we were surprised by her choice. TRT: 09:30.

SOMETIMES you just can’t get enough ADL…

Automobiles De Luxe airs tonight (Sunday, May 3rd) six o’clock on WEDH, WEDN, and WEDW – the three glitzy stations for CPTV, the Constitution State’s PBS member station.

Yes, I know what you’re thinking, that’s the same li’l network that could and did bring the world Barney, the purple dinosaur along with Thomas & Friends.

From our P.O.V., the giddy T. Rex and self confident choo-choo should be so honored.

Tune in!

ADL Videos Online

By Gunnar Heinrich

AUTOMOBILES DE LUXE videos are back online following a brief hiatus for our pilot series launch on CPTV, the PBS affiliate for Connecticut.

For more than a year, Team ADL has braved the elements, mapped the northeastern corridor, and clung to our artistic and editorial integrity to bring viewers in TV land and the Internet a new and quite unique perspective on de luxe automobiles.

In the posts that follow, you’ll see direct YouTube links to our original online broadcasts. First time viewers are encouraged to leave feedback either in comments or for those more circumspect  emailing – gunnar [at] automobilesdeluxe [dot] tv.

Enjoy.

ADL & CPTV

By Gunnar Heinrich

A number of people have been emailing me with various degrees of concern that ADL’s videos are offline.

One person’s email even started with, “ALARM!”

There’s no cause, friends.

I should have (but didn’t, sorry) explain before we took them off YouTube that many of the segments will premiere in a pilot series on CPTV, the PBS affiliate for Connecticut.

For the record, CPTV is the same station that brought you Barney, the purple dinosaur.

Unfortunately for our online audience, ADL’s current televised commitment means that many of the segments you’ve seen and ones that you haven’t  (this summer’s romps with the BMW drop tops and the Caddys) will not be viewable online until some time after this season’s broadcast dates.

Our first show, which will contain the BMW enthusiast and NYIAS segments, is scheduled to air October 26th at 6PM. If you’re in the Connecticut market, tune in!

And be not alarmed.

Thanks again for your support and interest.
