The posted residuals don't really make much sense to me, unless it is based on higher miles. I used Manheim to get an idea of true market value when I bought my 760. Auction wholesale is around...

You don't have the luxury rear seating, so you have a standard armrest without storage compartments.

The lack of the rear i-drive and the smaller screens, only in the US market, is baffling. The...

I am interested and looked at your website. You claim on your website that the ICE LCI H8 system has a 100,000 hour life. Since these use Xenon lamps and not LED, and Xenon lamps typically have a...

I have had several Dinan upgrades on prior cars and if there were any MPG savings, they were often negated because one tends to drive more aggressively once the Dinan kit is applied.

That car looks awesome. But, I think there is a certain amount of poseur value to putting on parts designed to identify a higher-end model. Much like adding M logos or Alpina bodywork to a non-M or...

LOL... My 1996 750il was similar to barbera red and I loved it. I have a black/black 7 series and would probably trade across in a heartbeat for a barbera red and tan/cream interior.
