Driver Assistance Package Plus worth it?

I absolutely love it. Once I saw it on a friends car, I immediately called the dealer and had it added to the build. Really cool. Has saved me more than $700 in repairs for sure.

Front plate

In Texas, it's a moving violation. They recently stepped up their game on pulling people over for it, and it's a BS reason to get pulled over.

I ran for 7 months in my current car without it,...

550i Dinan Exhaust install first impressions

I think the flapper just doesn't open when in park. When moving it makes a much better sound, I assume that is because the flap opens like on the stock exhaust.

I meant it as a good thing! Those AMG's make badass noise. You definitely know when one is around.

I'll see what the audio sounds like. I tried it earlier at idle and the audio wasn't representative of the actual note. It's much deeper, think SL63 AMG.

Retrofit '14 LED headlights to a '13?

Could the '14 F10 LED option headlights be retrofitted to a '13? Are the housings the same? I would have paid for the LED's in no time, but they weren't offered. My car is an M-Sport 550i if that...

Warning: Frontal Collision camera is blocked

I have experienced this with the sun.

I have also had it happen because a rather large bug met his demise directly over the camera.

I don't think they do. I simply ordered the "black" option. No specification of detail on the color.
