How loud is the knock? Where is it coming from?

BMW takes care of their customers really well. Don't worry about it. Don't get frustrated.

BMW takes care of their customers really well. I would not worry one bit, just enjoy the car. If the car has an issue, it will be fixed. If it stays in service too long, they will make it right by...

I went 22,000 miles with the older PS2s. I know people who have gone beyond 30,000 miles with new PSSs. It all depends on how you drive the car. As a daily driver, with no tracking, launch controls,...

Ah come on. This is really disappointing:(

How come this is not an issue in M5/M6? Is it a design issue on the cars or the bumpers?

Does swiping foot mechanism work with this? Original M diffuser has a design flaw and that functionality does not work unfortunately.

I ran into this link in another forum. The amount of stuff you can do in Corvette's PDR and what it shows you is just mind boggling. I then looked at other offerings from european car manufacturers,...

M5 makes a lot more than advertised 560. It's around 620 or so. Engines are heavily underrated because of the EU regulations (the way boost works, temperature, atmospheric pressure, etc, they give...

Much bigger car, much more luxury oriented, not so great sound. If you have a E60 that works, I'd say hold on to it for as long as you can. The only downside of the E60 is the old SMG transmission....

He is stirring sh!t up. There is no way anyone is going to get this car at invoice without any previous deals (trade ins, positive equity, etc.), absolutely no way.

Heard about this the other day, the M diffuser (and possibly other aftermarket ones) do not work with the foot sliding mechanism under the trunk. So if you install them, you won't be able to use that...

No. It has a drive assist mode. If you do a full stop and take your foot off brake, car doesn't move. But if you gently tap throttle a bit and let it go, it will keep creeping. It's great.

I agree with a lot of what you said except that M3 is not better looking. M3 looks so much better than the M5, a lot more aggressive. First of all, it has a very distinct look from its regular 3...
