I ordered my F15 with Active Steering, having loved it on my E70. In the E70, it definitely helped with the heaviness of the steering, but the best part of active steering is that it makes doing...

I was struggling with this choice. I had the 19s on my E70 and I never really realized how harsh the ride was until I got the 18s on the F15. I suppose it could all be due to the new suspension on...

I had the Harmon Kardon in my 2012 X5 (E70), and while I have some issues with my 2015 X5, I can say that the HK is leaps and bounds above the one that was in the E70, which wasn't bad at all. I'm...

Thanks everyone. I appreciate the feedback. I went with the 18s and will see what I think. I had 18s on my first X5, a 35d and 19s on my current 35i Premium X5. I don't know if I can go back from...

Thanks, all. I definitely appreciate that many if not most would choose the 19" wheels. What I'm wondering, though, is if anyone got the 18" wheels and regretted the decision for any reason (less...

Anyone regret the stock 18" wheels?

Just curious. I am deciding between the base and luxury lines. I really do not like the looks of the luxury line except for the wheels, and there is no way to upgrade to 19" wheels on the base...

Active Steering in the F15?

I'm wondering if anyone has compared the new X5 with and without Active Steering.

I have Active Steering in my 2012 e70 and love it. It is a great balance between ease of steering and tight,...

It's great that you can gave a M3 and a X5 these days. Some of us can't have both, so the SUV has to serve multiple purposes. While the X5 is no sports car, in DS and with Active Steering (and I...

I have to say that I find the 35i much more fun to drive around town than the 35d. The 35i gets off the line better and in sport mode it's a blast in and out of traffic. The 35d was great on the...
