Yes and no. First of all the 328i RWD is $37500.00 which is considerably less than $40K. Power memory seats are standard and it has nicer trim. The sweet spot for the 320i as we know is the great...

Not sure what you are expecting. Stopping distances are not ultimately determined by brake force. There is a maximum hydraulic pressure that can be applied and I'm guessing that's what DBC gives you....

But at what cost? Getting 300K out of a modern turbocharged engine with a lot of electronic controls is going to get pricey. Diesel's are simpler with fewer parts.

I'm sorry to hear of your experience but for most the reality is BMW fixed the HPFP issue years ago and the other issues are long gone as well. BMW mayhave been slow to react but they have done so.

In terms of how we talk about monthly payments $475.00 is the right number not $419.00. And you put down $2500.00 plus other up front costs. Assuming a 3 year lease, the $2500.00 comes to...

Since you know the 911 rear seats are useful only in theory and have an SUV, to me the 911 or Cayman are no-brainer's. If you are serious that the second car needs to haul your kids, it's a...

I agree with Squiddie. I want my 3 series to handle as well as it possibly can and unless you go aftermarket and I won't on a lease, you need Sport Line, MSport or DHP to get this. And even then you...

That blows my mind. I have the non-HK system in my car and I cranked it playing an MP3 to about 3/4 volume and it was painfully loud. Insanely loud. I can't possibly imagine listening to it at that...

Not sure why this is a surprise to you. Other than trim differences which are more part of the Lines and options and in the case of the M cars, exclusive trims, they are exactly the same.

328's come std with power seats and the other options other than big wheels don't add much weight.

He's wrong. He's mistaking the adaptive feature of the suspension with mode. It doesn't get stiffer, it changes damping temporarily to compensate for the quality of the road.

BMW USA might build what you want but don't count on it. Expect an uphill battle and a serious surcharge. They want to build per the configurator. I've never seen a Luxury Line with sport seats.

All season tires are not remotely as capable in snow as are winter tires. If you have no traction, it makes no difference which or how many wheels are doing the driving.

My BMW CA has been at that dealer at least since 2007 and does OK. He's far from wealthy and from what I can tell supports his family in a decent manner.
