Winter tires

I live in Brooklyn, NY and I am on a 2nd X5. I had NO problems with 20" tires being destroyed so I think it is not a concern. The only concern that you should have is that 19" could be a all-season,...

What dash cam are you using

Hi, I also live in Brooklyn and is looking for a good Dashcam to install. Interested in what dash cam you are using and if you professionally installed it or just your own.

I believe there is a big difference in highway and city

mileage - when I drive on highway I am close to 20-21 mpg, however city driving is very gas consuming.

The way I see it, it is not much bigger than current.

Just a little more square. BTW, I think the headrests we see are from the second row, not a third. If you compare this pictures with pictures of current X5, I see that new one would have higher hood...

Radar in the city

I just do not get it - why someone need to use radar detectors in the city like NYC? I am not aware of police using radars on the streets. Also, in regards to Red lights alerts in IX:

You are completely right on this. So, we do not know in this video what kind of tires

were fitted on both cars (even it is not a snow - sport vs. all-season can make a difference)

I think 30% all around would be enough!

In this case you would have 30% in the front and about 20% in the rear (total if you already had a factory tint in the rear). I went to 20% all around and I think it is too dark - first you ask for...
