It's a little soft, if the swirl marks on my black ones are any indication. But I see very old BMWs all the time with really nice looking paint.

I want all of you guy to be right, truly. I'm relaying my experience owning an F10 with DHP - no doubt the product is always advancing.

I understand. I did it on my F10 and gambled that the LCI would be no big deal, and I sort of won the gamble in that case. Like you though, I'm hearing too much interesting stuff about the...

My thought about adaptive suspensions - from BMW or anyone else - is that they are a bit of a compromise. The obvious benefit is that they allow a car to feel sporty or relaxed at the whim of the...

That's absolutely right, though the nature of run-flat tires is that they have supporting material in the sidewall strong enough to support the weight of the vehicle as it rolls for a limited...

Agree, plus August when the next year's cars are arriving on the lot. The BMWFS end might not be as good in August as it is in December, but the prices on the outgoing model year cars make up for it.

I remember when I upgraded the amp and speakers in my 2005 E60, and then the PDC beeps were suddenly deafeningly loud. It's hard to tell what BMW is up to with the audio systems these days!

There is indeed a performance driving center open there now, but it does not appear they are using it as a spot to accept delivery for new cars, as they do in Spartanburg.

I went out there and read that a few minutes ago myself. In the "Vehicle Delivery" section, they only discuss Spartanburg as an option. I admit it's not fully clear, though.

Last I checked, BMW wasn't planning to do delivery at that California Performance Center. It's been a few quarters since I looked, though - has that changed?

Yes indeed. I should have been more clear in my post that I was directing it at those readers who do not have a sponsor in their state. I edited my post above thusly.

It's great to see that there is a sponsor in Portland now! I wish there was one in Colorado, because I've been struggling with this point myself.

Many of the sponsors appear to do good honest...

Somebody always tries to make everything into a political discussion. How about let's not do that. We're all going to be bombarded with political rhetoric enough as it is for the next 14 months.

I like coral on the seats. Not so much on the lower dash. They do it differently depending on model - I'm probably an F36 guy next time out, can't remember what the treatment is there.

I've never been a white car guy. But, I was in Phoenix this week with a white rental car. In 106 degree heat and full sun, I could hold my hand on the hood without any pain. White works!

Exactly. Every one of these threads has somebody in it claiming that they built an M3 on the site for $62,000 - but I don't know who would actually want one like that in real life.

Ah, great idea and the timing will be key, while they still have some 2015s in stock. I will do that.

I want to know, in very objective terms, what the chassis, suspension, and ride height differences are between the 340 and the 340 xDrive, versus the pre-LCI equivalents.

Different price points, too. People always lob out arguments otherwise on here, but a comparably equipped M3 is about $15,000 more than a 340, and $15,000 is not a trivial amount of money for most...

They could always use the unit from the diesel and V8 cars - I assume using it in the B58 cars would be a triviality, but it would require recertification.

Thanks. I think knowing that answer is the main thing for someone deciding between a 2016 and 2017 car. Like me, probably.
