I drove a Macan S today and thought it was a really fun SUV to drive, as it was more like a sports car. I probably would have purchased it, but since they would barely budge from MSRP, it would cost...

I have been looking at the X5 35d and Cayenne diesel too. I like both of them and consider the Cayenne the better handling of the two and also think it looks a bit more elegant/sporty. The biggest...

I agree - I still listen to AM radio all the time, because most of the sport stations are on AM and other good talk radio shows. The HK radio is really subpar, once you get about 50 plus miles away...

Yes - that happened to my 328d too. Not sure why BMW seems like the only car that RainX affects the sensors. Have used it in other cars for years and never had any issues.

You are right that the X3 is getting crushed this year compared to sales last year. You would think that BMW would put incentives on that model and that with the slight refresh it would do better. ...

My wife agrees, as our Mercedes always seems to be cooler than our BMW when sunny out. I am not sure if it is the tint or the windows that makes the Mercedes stay cooler

I think this is a false statement. It is a know fact that diesels have better resale value. I have had three Mercedes GL350's diesels and they far outpace their gas counterparts in resale value.

I had that happen to my 328d once too. Never had that happen with any other car before, so I just figured it was my mistake.

Sure, the best technology advantage the X5/X3 have over the Cayenne is the HUD. I have that on my 328d and just love that. No such option for the Cayenne yet. I like the implementation of idrive,...
