I moved from Pirelli OEMs to Continental DWS a couple years ago. They work pretty well in both wet and snow/ice. I've only got 40K on mine.

Danny, when I was doing the research back in June I found that the OEM rack/bars which work on the anchors were actually less than those from Thule or Yakima. It could have been due to a discount...

My experience is that both microphones function regardless. We generally have both phones connected and both driver and passenger can be heard no issues regardless of which phone the call is through.

The shifting is a result of the higher revs. My personal recommendation is to leave it in comfort using sport when you really want the extra umph.

People new to BMW often make the mistake re: V6 versus I6.

FYI, in the US at least the f10 528 is a turbocharged 4 cylinder engine. Interesting that in Denmark they have an I6 with the same...

My only disappointment is that BMW doesn't bring more of their wonderful diesel line to the US. I'd much rather have an X3 oil burner than the gas version, but I don't have the choice.

I am not sure I can agree if you. Perhaps that is true in the Midwest with its lack of elevation changes. I do agree if the vehicle being drive has AWD or 4WD. I do not agree in regards to RWD. ...

I think that is the point made by the first response. Nothing is made to fit the ///M bumper. The general area that is used by the Z3 is a much needed air vent for the front brakes on the ///M.
