Turn them off manually until you can completely clean your windshield, especially over the sensors by the rearview mirror.

Recall Press Release

Makes sense that the E60 models would be the N54/N55 Engines, but the press release only stated the V8s and V12s.

Turbo V8 E60s?

The information seems confusing. Most all the press releases indicate the 2008-2010 550s series are involved, but unless I am missing something, there never was a turbo V8 in the E60. The 2010 F0 ...

Electric Steering Assist

Many manufacturers are going with electronic assist to gain efficiency (MPG) - as there is no drag on the engine without the belt driven pump. Haven't heard raves about anyone's electronic system...

2013 coming sooner than you'd think

From what I have read, it appears that the 2012 MY will be a short one, with the 2013 models SOP in July of 2012. Same for F25, etc. Appears that BMW is moving to one changeover date in July,...

Remember that the 28i will become a turbo 4 cyl with better fuel economy beginning toward the end of the year. The 6 cyl 28i is a lame duck. Will this increase its resale value years down the line?...

Agreed that it looks like a slightly enhanced F10 M-Sport, or a half-baked M5. What's with the standard issue sideview mirrors? Doesn't look like anything done to the rocker panels or rear wheel...
