The question above all questions is should there be turbo and throttle lag on the expensive 550i? Afterall BMW pride themselves on premium engineering. The moniker "ultimate driving machine" comes...

The xDrive plus snow tyres is obviously a better combination than RWD and snow tyres in slippery conditions eg torrential rain, sleet and snow. The difference is felt mostly on take-off and uphill....

Well it seems that most of you prefer supercharging and although it is stated that HP is lost at the crank with supercharging, the Audi A6 is still faster than the BMW 535i. All of you agree that the...

It always amazes me when a sophisticated company such as BMW makes unsophisticated mistakes! For instance tastes differ, so I've never been able to understand why BMW insists on Shadowline window...

Thanks for the screenshot WillInDenver! I notice that it is not the full DHP (ie Active Roll Stabilsation & Dynamic Damping). It only has Dynamic Damping so I'm not clear whether one can have M sport...

The Porsche Macan is more exciting to drive than an X3 period. Nothing to do with runs to Whole Foods. Everything to do with serpentine canyons. Furthermore the Macan is a better offroader than an...

Overpriced yes! VW no! Let's face it, Porsche trumps BMW in terms of performance and handling in any comparable vehicle. The X3 is no match for the Macan. The X5 is bested by the Cayenne. The...
