Another "what to buy" thread...

Bonz,

Despite a huge AWD fan, I would pick the MB SL from your list. It's a bucket list type of car. I had one as a year-round daily driver and loved it. If you were to go new, a European...

With proper tires and a 704 equivalent suspension, the 550xi is hands down the better performing car - no matter the weather or road conditions.

BTW, the 650xi GC comes with 704, so all it needs...

Yeah, I had Dinan Springs, forged wheels and Michelin PSS which really improved the way the car handled. (BTW, it remained neutral) I also added a tune and exhaust. I would say the biggest impact...

I own(ed) a 2011 550xi, 2013 X5M, and a 2013 650xi and put them through the paces handling-wise and I agree with the magazine testers that xDrives are now set up with a neutral balance. ...

BMW sets up their xDrives to be neutral. This should be common knowledge by now.

Tests have shown that the current generation of xDrive BMW sedans are neutral, so understeer is not an issue with these cars.

A nonRFT will soften your ride, but if you have DHP, you can run your car in Sport mode with the comfort of Normal mode and benefit from better overall handling.

I'm an AWD fan! :)

If you are looking for sport driving, BMW sets up their 6er xDrive cars better than they do for the 5er. Despite this fact. I'd still pick a 550xi over a 550i.

I know it's unpopular with traditionalists, but if you drive these V8s hard, they don't burn oil. I'm now going 18kmi between oil changes with no adds.

The K900 and Equus are full size cars like the 7 Series. If the K900 does as poorly as the Equus, it will be able to be had for $20k off the list price, so <$50K fir a Korean S Class.

I'm happy with my 6er, but I grew a bit bored with it fairly quickly. The same exterior & interior colors probably made it a bit too much like my 5er. On the plus side, I think if one is wanting a...

Here's why I carry a .38 at night.

The acoustic wave applies to supersonic (i.e. a shockwave) rounds. That's not B.S., but the importance is most likely overstated. The second part about 100% K.E. transfer is true for any round...

I guess this is what happened to the rumored M8. I hope they go with I6. That way they could offer competition pack with higher powered hybrid system for well over 600hp. :thumbup:

Sorry, but that what the future looks like for BMW. My 6er already has this type of display. The 7er is next and the next-gen 5er will most likely follow this trend.
