Stolen British Supercars Shipped To Thailand In Tax Scam

More than 120 supercars were seized as authorities dismantled an elaborate tax avoidance scam in Britain and Thailand.

BMW Recalls 7-series Cars Because Doors Can Fly Open

BMW is recalling more than 45,000 older 7-Series cars in the U.S. because the doors can open unexpectedly while they're being driven.

The documents didn't say if the problem had caused any crashes or injuries. The recall came after the National Highway Traffic Safety Adminis...
