So this is Christmas! With all due respect to the various readers of as well as to the truer meaning of togetherness and community on this December 25th day, this holiday can be regarded as the most valuable event commercially. Many of us have been honored with a much-wanted gift item under the Christmas tree. However, some of us tear open our gifts realizing we’re beholding products destined to be returned to stores. While a fair share of item returns will result in store credit, some automotive enthusiasts may become the lucky ones to obtain cashback.

Also relevant for those who have acquired their present in the form of money, motorheads can set their sights to a wide-ranging assortment of official automotive-branded merchandise bringing post-holiday cheer.

BMW Snow Racer

Made from weather resistant plastics, the 6 kilogram (13.22 pound) BMW Snow Racer provides excitement for children 4-10 years old as they storm down white, powdery hills in this stylish sled. Sorry to more mature readers, there is not an adult version of the BMW Snow Racer.
