That question is entirely relevant to whether the car is worth the price. The story they are telling you is, literally, the archetype story of the "peach" used car.

But you don't have to...

Highway 24 heading west out of Colorado Springs is like that. There can be no pragmatic reason for that road to have a 45MPH limit, but it does. It is marked clearly.

The conversation I've never been in is the effect the F10 design direction has had on 7 series sales. It seems like the recipe for the current 5 equals the recipe for previous 7s, and it makes me...

The system in Texas (http://www.dmv.org/tx-texas/point-system.php) is a little different. Any moving violation gets you 2 points, whether it's 10 or 50MPH over. Whether you keep your license...

You just got a ticket and you're pissed off. It happens. Pay it, move on. In a month or two it won't be occupying your thoughts like it is right now.

After all, you were speeding, right?

Then buy an extended warranty for $2000 that covers you to 100,000 miles. You're still way, way ahead on the economics.

I think people just like to drive new cars every few years. Just say it. ...

I bet it will creep up to about 60 around year-end, if history holds. BMW uses residual to manipulate demand, and those crazy MY16 residuals are meant to move old cars to make way for new ones. ...

If I could find a pre-2014 N63 car, and if the seller could guarantee me that he hadn't stuck a $300 ECU chip onto his $80,000 car it to give it more power, I'd probably take the chance.

I'd agree with that. Previous 5 series cars like the E60 and E39 came off like 15% larger versions of the same car the 3 series was, but they felt more similar than different when you drove them. ...

Yeah, I had 18s on my 545. I lusted after the 19s that they put on later model M-Sport 550s, but I never lost a tire on those 18" wheels.
