Does the Adaptive M Suspension improve Lateral-G numbers? I see that that the stock 340i XDrive scores a 0.91 and the non-xDrive scores a 0.88.

Thanks!

Geez....I wish our rates were as "brutal". I'm in Toronto and am paying just over $2k/year each for a 328i and a X3 - no accidents or tickets for decades and we work from home!

I connected a WD Passport (non-SSD) drive and got the same "reading", then "unavailable" messages.

I guess we need to find drives that can be powered with 500mA, if such a beast even exists.

Play music from solid state drives?

I know that I can play music files on USB flash drives, but was wondering if the F30 will play music from a solid state drive, if it is plugged into the USB port?

Has anyone tried this?

No. It can play WAV files from a flash drive, but not gapless WAV.

A 128GB flash drive will hold approximately 200 CDs in the WAV format.
