Well, the answer is yes, it's possible. But not practical. You can do anything if you throw enough money at it. However, there might be aftermarket options, just like you have when you want to put...

Yeah. I've been considering the wagon, the GT and the Gran Coupe. The wagon, sedan and gran coupe have very similar rear seats. The primary difference is the headroom. The Gran Coupe's sloping roof...

That's something else that pisses me off. But it's not specific to BMW. All car makes in the US favor red rear turn signals. Even worse is any car that uses the same bulb for brake and turn. More...

I don't have the actual numbers, but the trunk of the GT is bigger than the 4 Series Gran Coupe. It is also deeper than the wagon, but not as tall due to the sloping glass. I've been comparing these...

I think it depends on your build. I'm 6'2" or maybe 6'3", and I could get in the back seat "behind myself" (having set the driver's seat for myself), and my legs did fit, but my head was on the...

Polarization doesn't distort your vision. All it does is block light waves in one direction, typically vertical. This is the direction of the light waves of sunlight after it bounces off the road,...

The order sheet info thread has the 435i xDrive listed as a July 1 start-of-production. So you should be able to order them now, but it's unlikely you'll see any on the ground here until late...

By adding spacers, you're changing the stress points of the wheels and suspension. Think of levers and pivots and stuff like that. You may run spacers for years and never have a problem. But as bear...

Not having ordered yet, I've been giving this some thought. And I think I'd rather skip the HUD and save $1K and keep wearing polarized sunglasses. And that's crazy coming from a techno-nerd like me!...
