Bel Air is 6 miles off of I-95, exit 77B, and a straight shot up Route 924 that literally puts you on Looneys Pub Norths parking lot. The Harford County Office building is directly across the street. At 6ish in the evening the lot is pretty … CONTINUED

Its no secret BMW has a really great marketing machine, with really invetive ads on the internet, in print, and of course highway billboards. There were the famous BMW v Audi billboard ad wars of last year which many of us remember. This time around, theres not a war, but a very simple billboard ad to highlight a local Connecticut dealers offer of overnight test drives.
Whats happened since is that this story … CONTINUED
