BMW's break-in recommendations limit you to 100mph for the first 1K miles, and I didn't drive that far before it was shipped home. Yes, I probably could have taken it up faster, but in reality, most...

Mudflaps may be even more useful if you decide to move the wheels out via spacers than with the stock setup. Personally, I don't see the need for that, but that's just me!

At least a few people here have the mudflaps, myself included. I did have them painted, but installed them myself. It isn't a particularly hard job. Do a search, and you'll see what it takes. You...

BMW is not alone in being expensive if you need a repair out of warranty. Hopefully, once you've gotten through the first couple of years, though, anything 'wrong' with the car, has failed and been...

SOrry, I do not know how BMW is going to incorporate the faster cellular function or what they are calling it, but I was told it will start to show up in some models this year.

At some point, BMW's in the USA will be getting LTE connections. Not sure what 'flavor' is in the car now, but it's not particularly fast! One side benefit to that is that, at least in the USA,...

Note that the rear seats don't quite sit flat when folded. There's maybe 10-degree slope or so. FWIW, if you don't have it full of stuff, one of the under floor compartments is designed to hold the...

I wonder if the adhesive they use to attach the fabric to the rest of the mechanism is failing. It sees some really extreme temperature swings and while the glass absorbs most of the UV, whatever...

While it doesn't happen often, the first time a trailer starts to oscillate, you may change your mind! It's unfortunate that BMW won't sell the GT (or most vehicles except the x-series) prepped for...

If I had to guess, my guess is that something ended up rubbing on the LH spring (air bag), and eventually would poke a hole in it. Not knowing exactly how the part was changed, or if it didn't, but...

FWIW, 90% of my miles are solo, with little else in the car. Was wondering if regularly carrying more people and heavy loads may mean that air spring gets compressed more and maybe there's a bolt or...

Out of curiosity, how many miles on the car? I wonder if it relates to the amount of use or load. I had not had issues when mine was replaced about a month ago, but I only have about 31K miles on...

I'm jealous! I wish we had that engine option here in the USA. More torque than the 550, and about the same power as the 535i, plus, lots better fuel economy. Since we can't go over about 80mph...

You may already know this, but with an aftermarket wheel, the offset sometimes can be 'fixed' with the use of a spacer. Ideally, to maintain a stock configuration, you'd only use a spacer to put the...
