First off, there were no parts available in the US OR GERMANY. It wasn't like I didn't want to wait a day or two for the part to be delivered. Secondly, why would BMW care? As BMR2009 said it will...

The videographer has no idea what he is talking about. There are not "2" versions of the M Sport package. The silver car has the optional 20s and the white car has the standard 19s. Both cars come...

I have 20s but the issue is the same as the 19s. The only run-flat snow option is the Pirelli and they are incredibly expensive. 20s are over $2200. Instead, I switched my Goodyear run-flat...

Nice work. I agree that yellow looks old and dated and may just switch mine out.

I also own an Audi Q5 and Audi's system is no less or more complicated than BMW's. Frankly, each system is intuitive and easy to use with a few quirks.

Actually, Dark Graphite, but good suggestion nonetheless. Snow season is coming and the sand/salt wreaks havoc on cars. The hood/front bumper gap seems like a good separation point.
