N20/N26 are impressive at 120HP per liter, the i8 1.5-liter 3-cylinder engine(B38?) is even more impressive than N20/N26, yielding 146HP per liter. Also note that the B38 HP and lb-ft are very...

The summer tires perform poorly at near or below freezing temperatures, so if there is no plan for dedicated winter tires in those conditions, the A/S ones will be a good compromise.

This is good info. To avoid such damage, should shipping blocks be re-installed at ED drop-off then? I wonder if drop-off location personnel missed a step or not.

It looks like BMW is addressing this by reducing prices to align with the competitions, at least in the US market, and the strategy seems to work for now.

Compared to the my old E39, the current F30 is a significant upgrade. The one thing I miss from the old E39 is the well insulated interior, the F30 cabin is much warmer on summer days than than E39.

Thanks for the info, it is not too comforting to read this, especially on those post 01.03.2011 failures. Hopefully the N20/N26 timing chain design is done right and not subject to these failures.
