Sorry to say, but that's pretty normal. I'm on my third 535 and all have had the same problem. My current is four months old and I can see them starting to form. Like you said however, they are...

Happens all the time. Smokers are so use to the smell that they think all they have to do is open a window and no one will notice. I was in a loaner the other day and even thought they pulled the...

That does suck. Looks like you were parked downtown. Some people just can't stand others having nice things. I was talking to my insurance agent the other day because I had some paint damage in a...

I think it's fraud if your dealer's Parts Department told you they were ordering BMW OEM glass and they outsourced it for the same price. You should also have been given the option if the OEM glass...

I find the knuckle works pretty good by hitting the end of the button to the side of the graphic. Just realized how stupid that sounds. Why can't BMW design a graphic that doesn't wear out?

My dealer told me the pull ahead program was good as long as ordered by 3/31/14 and delivery taken by April 30th? If what you're saying is true, I lucked out because my car came in early and I took...

He's selling you the car for below invoice plus a $1K college "bonus". That's a good deal on the surface, but what he's really telling you is he has to make it up on the money factor. It's pretty...

The RE960AS RFT does not come in a 245-40-19. I've been waiting for Bridgestone to add our size with no luck. Best match is a 245-45-19. Not sure why you're having a problem if that's the size,...

Why take the chance of getting stopped? One or two glasses of wine and an excuse to stop you for not having a front plate can cost you a heavy fine or worse. I ran three years without a front plate...

The LS2 is an all-season RF, so it comes with all 535 XI's. The main complaints come from those with M-Sport or Sport packages in the 245-40-19 size. The other XI models come with the LS2's, but in...
