I had really settled on an X5 as an alternative to my M3. Something more practical, good for winter, an every day grocery getter and commute to work car. When I test drove a 35i with regular...

Actually, if I'm not mistaken, the BMW app will not track your vehicle in that manner if it is more than a certain distance away from your location. Try it sometime. If your wife is driving it or...

I don't have the option that applies the brakes but it does put the collision warning up on my heads-up display if something is close enough. It seems to work pretty good... most of the time. If my...

Yeah, I don't like impact wrenches at all. I have been doing my own wheel swaps for years and I will not use one. Liberal use of anti-sieze and a good old fashioned torque wrench is the way to go. ...

There really isn't anything that can be done to the car, other than adding running boards. Mine's an Msport, so can't have running boards. I wouldn't have wanted them anyway because you couldn't get...

Find a real steep driveway that you can drive up on, then reverse back down and slam on the brakes. Worth a try. :dunno:

As far as pushing the park button, I see no reason to do that. It's just an added motion that will happen anyway. I just come to a stop with my foot on the brake and push the start/stop button. I...

I just tested it. If you unlock it using the fob but do not open any doors, it relocks in approximately 2 minutes. It does not, however, re-arm the alarm. Just locks it. But, as I said, there is...
