I watched a video review of the new M3 the other day and he mentioned a 'steering' button that they have on the center console that will stiffen up the steering. They have other discrete buttons for...

I like it most of the time. My most pleasurable experience with it was driving from North Austin to West San Antonio at 6pm on a Friday. Ordinarily that would make my brain explode, but it wasn't...

My lame-o X5 E53 produced in 2002 had an electric adjustment! I didn't think that they made anything in the 5+ lines that had manual steering wheel adjustments. Anarchy!

I don't have my front plate on either. If I get tagged, I'm going to point to the ACC radar and claim that a front plate interferes with my ACC. Maybe it will work, maybe it won't :). I haven't...

+1 kinda. I went with a similar, yet different approach. I got a 35i instead of 50i so that I could have DHP and the rest of the toys. I didn't think I'd be happy with a DHP 50i 'stripper'.

On my E71, it was single step and quiet, but still audible all the time. On my F16, its two-step and almost inaudible. I can only hear it if I'm listening for it.

I got the MSport because I like the square exhaust tips and shadowline trim. Also, I wanted MSport xmission+DHP and you can't get that w/o the MSport package.

I would be happy for brown. Mine is Ivory. I had Oyster leather on my E70/E71 and their lower dashes were black, not dirt magnet ivory.

My F16 seems to be dusting way less than my E70 and E71. With my Es, it seemed like they'd be dirty again only a few days after washing. When I washed my car on Sunday, I didn't even wash the...

I hhhhhhhhated my E70 X5 35d; it just didn't suite my driving style in any way whatsoever. I traded it in for an E71 X6 35i after 1y and never looked back.

However, I test drove an F15 X5 35d...

I care, but only because I want to reduce fill-ups. I'd take the 'bigger gas tank' option any day. My E53 X5 had a 23gal tank. That was awesome.
