AFAIK, Sport+ changes nothing about the throttle dynamic, steering, or suspension damping compared to the normal sport mode. It only disables the traction control and [maybe, I'll have to test it]...

It's completely plausible that a 24 year old with less than one year in his current job would not qualify for the top tier financing package.

I see those bumper bully guards in NYC and absolutely nowhere else. They look like they probably work but aren't exactly elegant. I would probably carry one in the trunk if I lived there.

I agree, this is much more like Audi's approach - exactly like it, in fact - where the S4 engine is the same as the A6 engine. The S6 has a different engine, which may be the one in the RS4. The...

Interesting. BMW may or may not have changed some of the suspension components with the LCI. The springs on your (and my) 535 are so soft that almost anything else would result in less front end...

If you stay in the lease for the term, the only downside is that the MSD money is totally illiquid.

I'll definitely agree with you there. The E60, and certainly the E39, had an appeal beyond the spec sheet. They loved to be driven and I looked forward to every time I got into mine. My F10 is...

I'm not seeing this in the numbers in the OP. F3X sales are higher than F10 sales, but not that much. What am I missing?

BMW had the 320 in 2014, which no doubt inflated the number of F3X sales...

I figured it would run about $7K as a package, but it's hard to say exactly because of the mysteriously high DHP pricing on F10s. The exhaust probably wouldn't make the cut.

DHP is $3500 and the...

Agreed, many people who rode in my E60 thought it was a little high strung. BMW has clearly developed a car with a broader appeal in the F10. Can't fault them at all.

I do wish, though, that the...

Yes, agreed. Although, believe it or not, not on the 5 series. DHP on that car is limited to the adjustable dampers on the base suspension. I wonder why they did it differently.

I need to see the interior of the C-Class in person before I decide. In pictures it does look a little steampunk.

What I like about the car is the positioning of AWD as a performance component. ...

The C63 AMG is the MB competitor to the M3. This looks like it's more like an "M-Sport" equivalent - although of late, M-Sport has been merely cosmetic compared to the regular Sport package on most...

Coming: 2016 Mercedes-Benz C450 AMG 4Matic

MB announces their "M-Sport" 335 equivalent this week at the Detroit show. Looks nice.

Lexus GS-F shown with 467hp. M5 killer? Nope

Ain't that the truth!

I have a mere 535, and I don't think I wring even it out to its full capability more than once in a long while.

LivinSD is right. BMW wants to make a certain margin on each 5 series and Lexus wants to make a certain margin on each GS. We can assume the market is efficient enough that those margin targets are...

The RC-F is clearly positioned against the M4, so it's not too far a leap to assume Lexus is positioning this car against the M5. But neither the power numbers nor the price back that up.

You guys seem to be saying about the same thing, and I agree. This is a 550/S6 competitor, not an M5 competitor at all.

Having said that, it appears somehow to be a bit lighter than the RC-F and...
