I'll be taking my chances in the near-term for daily drive purposes - fairly short commute on decent surface streets. I've got AAA Plus for a really severe failure if I can't limp anywhere close....

Good Riddance, Run-Flats!

Decided the OEMs on my 2011 F10 528i (Goodyear Eagle) had served their useful life at just over 43,000 miles. I wanted to try conventional tires instead of run-flats for this go around and settled on...

I've got a little over 39k on those same, original tires - they've probably got a couple thousand miles of tread left. I'll be curious to see which way you go. I've been leaning toward going for...

Glad you seem to off to a great start! I very much miss having a wagon. When I pulled the trigger in 2011 on the 528i the 5 Series wagons were already gone from the US and the 3 Series wagon was too...

Thanks for putting up the great review - sounds like it will be a fantastic car! This would be a serious contender for me if I were in the market (won't be for quite some time)!

Nice. Downtown LA, the 105-East in El Segundo and PCH thru Malibu - all with lots of fake backgrounds. But why the hell are they filming an F11 on PCH when they won't even let us buy one over here!?...

LA driver here. I'm on board with the G35/37 sentiments, but also been noting a number of obnoxious Audi drivers. There are FAR too many late model white A4 sedans in this world. Also, the Audi SUV...

Looks great! If only some of the SUV/minivan obsessives here in the US would come around to the idea that a wagon might be superior fit, maybe we could have the opportunity to get buy those over here!

Still quite happy with mine. The Corgi (see above), however, still prefers to ride in the back of the Subaru - I blame longstanding English/German relations.
