The flaps come with a primer on them. Extended exposure to crud may mean instead of just a finish coat, you may need to pay for that as well after cleaning them up. Per the instructions, they must...

If it's a BMW wheel for this series, you could be pretty assured it would fit!

But, there are a few things about any wheel that will affect how a wheel fits on any particular car with the first...

The recall is a precaution...the failure is not guaranteed. On mine, they said all of the existing bolts were intact, so their replacement was easy. I do not know how many it takes to fail before...

There are three different seats available on the GT...'normal', sport, and comfort. They each offer slightly different seating. Unless you're lucky, though, the dealer may only have one or two of...

I assume you mean 550GT. The best I've done on my 535GT (x-drive) on a long trip was a bit over 30mpg. There's a sales report by model kicking around somewhere...I thought I had made a copy, but...

I have a full set of the mudflaps. By the time you buy them, get them painted, and installed, it's probably at least $600 or so. They aren't hard to install yourself - all it takes is a utility...

I did nearly 1,000 miles one day...I felt fine, but by the end, my eyes were getting a little blurry! The MC seats are nice.

We might see another engine choice in the GT, but that's just a guess. Considering that there are 3-4 diesel engines for the GT in other markets, and it would help the corporate fuel economy...

I think I'd read that some of the earliest ones cannot be upgraded to do that via software. Maybe a little bit of search might find that out.

My guess is that there won't be major changes to the GT next year. The option choices change somewhat year-to-year, so it's hard to say. I have a 2011, and then, and I think through 2013, you could...

Just picked my car up after having the recall done. Apparently, there are 8-bolts, and in my case, they were all intact, so it was fairly easy. But, be aware that before they can perform the work,...

Like most BMWs, it's in the rear, underneath the floor, about where a spare tire well would be if the GT came with a spare tire. It's a huge battery. If this is your first BMW, keep in mind that...

I installed mine over 3-years ago...the current ones may be different. I've had no reason to look. They do work, and help keep the area behind the wheels cleaner.
