Keeping the tyres at the correct pressure saves on fuel bills. I think BMW should install a device that prevents all the fuel from being used up in order to save the fuel pump and injectors. They...

MasterYoda the M2 is not yet out. BMW are still developing it. The M235i is a watered down version. The problem with genuine meat ie M3, M4, M5 etc is that they are too expensive for the majority of...

The M235i looks insubstantial next to a 4 series. The design of the 2 series has "budget" written all over it. Why not pony up and get the M4? It would be a drive of a lifetime and well worth the...

It's interesting that the grill has only ten slats. I thought only the LCI had ten and the pre-LCI came with twelve.

JPZeller, I notice you have the 2014 model year. Respected members such as Sonicendeavour have stated that BMW improved the standard suspension in MY2014. So much so that there is not much difference...

JPZeller can you elaborate on why you prefer the 550ix to the 535ix. Is it just improvement in straight-line acceleration?

Wow that Azurite Black has more presence than Carbon Black. It seems both variations have dark blue mixed in. It must have cost you a fortune!

You're better off getting the lighting package. It really modernises the appearance of the 5 series. Pre-LCI lights look dated in comparison. I'm glad you're with M Sport. After looking at the...

I didn't know you could get M Sport Suspension (704) with the 528i. I thought it was only for rwd 535i and 550i.

Perhaps the handling of the 528i is better than the 535i and 550i because the...
