Seating position of 3 vs 4

Is there any difference in the seating position of the 328 or 428GC in terms of seat height off the floor (when in a comparable position such as at it's maximum height) and how far back the seat...

6.5 inch LCD

I am not interested in spending $2000 for a nav system. What makes me most ambivalent is that I will only get the 6.5 inch lcd with lower resolution. I presume this is something that I can live with;...

BMW 328i x-drive or volvo v60 RD

I am deciding between two comparably priced cars: BMW 328 M-sport x-drive wagon or the Volvo V60 RD. The major and most obvious plus for the Volvo is price. For a comparable cost, I can get options...

If it were available, I would purchase an F11. In it's absence, I am deciding between and F10 and F15. I recognize that these are very different vehicles, but, I am left with little choice but to...

In evaluating that comparison, consider that there are improvements being made in MY14 for the Volvo, and also that there will be a R-design version which look really exciting. I was initially going...

5 series vs x5

I am curious why a comparably equipped 5 series is so much more expensive than an X5. It is hard to understand why there is such a premium for a sedan over an SUV.

x-drive

There is one problem: I live in northern VT. It is thus quite discouraging that with the x-drive, Msport, DHP, etc, it is getting awfully expensive to get a good handling 5. Maybe it's time to take...

x-drive

So, if I understand correctly, in order to improve upon the base suspension in an x-drive vehicle, the M-sport does nothing, and I would have to spend another $3500 for DHP. I just don't get how BMW...
