I think a big factor with deep snow is the low clearance of the car. I have runflat M3s and had no problems except in one case when the snow was too deep that the car was bottoming out on it. Other...

I completely disagree. A botched software update operation can render a car unusable or completely unsafe to drive. Given the state of the art today, this still needs to happen at the dealership...

Wouldn't this "tail happiness" be mostly taken care of by managing the throttle a little better?

You definitely should change tires. I put Dunlop M3s on my car and it is doing very well. The only thing you need to worry about then is ground clearance.

You'd think BMW would hire expert forensic specialists if they were really interested in finding the cause of the fire.

These BMWs are sure weird!

My buddy's E90 with auto transmission has two foot pedals, but his mom's G35 only has one. What's the second pedal for?

Hmm... I'd look again. My guess is that you forgot. It's impossible for the RPM to be close to zero while the engine is running in any of these cars.

I would not want to drive a car where its 240 hp engine cannot be shut off in an emergency if some piece of software thinks I'm moving. Pure and simple. Engine shutoff has to be there or it's a...

A few people including myself did, but you continue to say you didn't see any. Boy, I'm tired of this and the poor horse has been dead a long time.

I enjoy reading people shooting their mouths off without knowing what they're talking about. I suggest finding a picture of an E90 and looking at the button's location before posting.

They are towards the passenger side in the US too, but I wouldn't say they are "on" the passenger side. Again, what passenger sits there and presses the driver's buttons (no pun intended)?
