Front fender on newer model E60's

Looking at photos of the newer model E-60's on this board it looks like the M front fender. Is that standard on the recent models?

Must be the weight of the 525 with the 6 banger. Even then it sounds pretty low to me. My old 325 got 22 city / 29 hwy. My current 550i is normally 18 city 28 hwy. It's never been below 17 even...

I really like your EQ settings. In addition
bass/treble: +2
fader: -2

I've found that the car starts in 3rd from a dead stop when in D, DS, or M (if you let it shift on its own).

Stream,

You mentioned that you used DVD+R to burn. Does it matter if you use DVD-R? I never really understood the difference.
