MUNICH -- Japan's Honda Motor Co. yesterday distanced itself from a long-term commitment to Britain's Rover Group PLC, now controlled by Germany's BMW, and indicated that it might take a go-it-alone stance in Europe.Honda's cautious new approach became clear as Bayerische Motorenwerke AG, or BMW, agreed to take over full ownership of Rover Group by acquiring the 20 percent stake held by Honda. But that accord did not resolve the question of Honda's continued cooperation with Rover."The vital question is not yet answered," said Andreas Wahl, German equities analyst at Hoare Govett Securities Ltd. Analysts said that Rover's current model lines depend on technology and parts supplied by Honda.

To hear the owner of the city's major in-town automobile agency describe his family's experience, the past 50-odd years have been as steady as one of their big Oldsmobiles set on cruise control. In a city where department stores, schools and libraries have shut their doors in the past decade - and residents sought new housing in the suburbs - the Mortimers, father and son, have believed and invested in an old-fashioned city neighborhood. The ribbon-cutting tomorrow for a new $2 million Anderson Honda showroom at Howard and 25th streets culminates an expansion shaped by a philosophy that this location - not far from downtown Baltimore - is a good place to do business.

Scott Dixon had been in this position before - out front in the Honda Indy 200 at the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course. It was a very familiar place to be. But it wasn't comfortable. At one point, he was so far ahead, he thought he'd done something wrong. But it was just Dixon's dominance. Still, he said, he never thought he had the race won until he took the checkered flag. "Until it's over you never know," said Dixon, who won Sunday at the track for the fourth time in six years.

I was really starting to understand what the car needs. " But then, when Conway came out of the pits the two eventually collided and the steering wheel's knob spun around and hit Castroneves' hand hard.
