My 2015 came with 20 inch Goodyear Excellence made in Germany. What is odd is that it may be the same tire that came with my 2012, but for some reason I have no complaints with the ride as I did...

I am curious to know how you managed to get 53,000 miles on one set of tires? Sounds impossible. In any event, on my 2012 I went with the Continentals non run flats and was happy. I did have some...

I know what you mean, I haven't the guts to test the system either. I have induced the warning light though. In your example on the autobahn, did the car provide the red warning light and buzzer...

I believe the new 2016 has this collision feature. Does that make it a nanny car? Who cares what you call it, if it saves a collision why not. If you are a perfect driver, nothing lost.

Thank you for the great idea and write up. I found it superior to another method I used on my 2012 which required removal of the surround trim piece of the roof control panel to gain...

By using this logic you would not pay much if anything for keyless entry. Why pay for keyless entry when you can just touch the button on the key fob. Easy pee ze, right?

I will pay $100 for the code if anyone can figure it out and tell me what it is. It is worth that much to me as my other car has it although I agree $100 is too much.
