I could not believe that article. It's so off base, it's like the guy drove some cars 10 years ago and said this is what they are directed towards. Anyone who believes BMW is all about the driver...

I have to ask- did you drive the S it in sport mode? I have the exact opposite reaction and experience as you. My 7 was a great car, but damn that thing was a boat. Floated and floated. It had no...

As a previous F02 owner and current W222 owner, I'll chime in. Compared to the F02, my new S is leaps and bounds better. I have to struggle to find something I prefer on the 7. I was looking...

I just a left Costco- they have a 3 pack of standard light bulb looking 60W equivalent LEDs for $10. That's $3.33 a bulb. For the 40W candle bra they are only $3 a bulb. They even have the 6" can...

I had the same thing on my 550i. Car went nuts and a ton of warning lights went of. I kept driving from Brooklyn to my dealer in oyster bay and barely made it into the driveway. I couldn't even...

Comments are subjective but seem to be near universally against this car. In the shadow of the new S, BMW needs to come out with a show stopper and this looks like a very very mild refresh. I'd...

I wasn't sure to go into detail here, but since this thread derailed (and boy do we need it looking at that Lexus) and the F01/2 forum not being the best place for a MB thread I figured why not.

I just don't get why these companies don't just go for it. BMW did it with the i8. Caddy should make that Elmiraj, and BMW should make this. Don't they know they'd clean house?

A few outlets have looked at the actual weight loss of the new f150. It was closer to 450lbs. And that's on a steel bodied huge truck where there had been minimal investment in weight loss...

I SERIOUSLY doubt BMW dropped the weight to under 4000lbs from its current 4600+ (750il). They may have shed 2-300, but I doubt more.

Of course. They wouldn't compare. Did you not just disprove yourself?

Anyone who says the current 750 out performs the new S has not driven the new S. That's been proven.

That proves my point. A pro in a school bus can draw down a GT3 driven by my grandmother. Doesn't mean the bus is a better car. You can't seriously imagine your car is a better performance car...
