A couple of test drives I've been on have convinced me I'll never buy a demo vehicle. Went to test drive an E92 M3 before I ordered mine. Sales dude wanted to drive first to get it out of the lot, so...

When you say the power band is more linear, do you mean smoother tip in at lower throttle positions? Stock, it seems to be very hard to throttle up smoothly from a stop, or any other low rpm...

Since you asked... get the X5. The X6's are hideous looking. Not that the X5's look great. They don't. They are SUV's afterall.

Whichever you have. I happen to use Redline, which comes in quarts. Most people would use BMW branded Castrol, which comes in liters.

This is why you should always keep an extra liter of oil in your vehicle, so when the time comes, wherever you are, you can take care of it. If you take it to the dealer because you want them to add...

No, it's not backwards. Think of it in terms of 1st gear - 2nd gear on a manual. Downshift is forward. Upshift is back. Same in my DCT. It is universal.

Might be the "same" engine but it is in a different vehicle model (E70 vs. E15). Just too many differerences. Even though it's the same engine, I'm sure a lot of the software, like transmission...

BMW's have a brake drying function. When the vehicle senses the brakes are wet, it applies just enough pressure to keep the rotor dry. I have no idea where or how it senses the water, and this is...

Push "SYNCH" and all four (left and right, front and back) will be the same. You can adjust the temp setting on one and they will all follow.

Or, if you were asking about reselling the tune as a standalone product? I don't know about that.

That's what I would like... clear reflective for the front. I'm good with the red in the back. Against AW, it looks fine, but the yellow fronts are just ugly, no matter what color you've got.
