The C looks like it was designed by committee, IMO -- no soul, faux style. F30, in comparison, has an inspired design with soul that harkens to its origins. Having owned 3 MBZs in its heyday -- the...

Driving 2006 Vanden Plas V8 last 10 weeks, a speed demon. Hard to drive under 90 on I-95. Gained newfound respect for Jag.

All due respect, BMW QC dropped the ball in several places, including at the dealership. I paid cash, and when I alone discovered the problem I felt like I bought a rust bucket. You don't know for a...

BMW has a history of selling rusting Bimmers. The seats in mine were rotting rust. Before I could enjoy my new ride it was into to the dealership to get the sport seats replaced.

All of this speculation -- including mine -- is just marijuana mathematics. I think a lot of people who drive Bimmers smoke pot. :bigpimp:

My car had a $53K MSRP. Buying with all cash cut the price to $47K, hence $51K with T&L. The dealer calculated a lease on the car before I purchased that ran $550 to $575 mo. Will my car sell for...

Ok, I admit I was high when I did the math. But it's not that off! My car would've been $550 or more to lease. I paid $51K w/ T&L. I have a loaded EBII M Sport driven 4-5K miles a year, so it will be...

Blues, jazz, and classic rock sounds great on HK! I tweaked the EQ to my liking and haven't changed it in a Blue Moon (like the song).

I would only put black grills on a black or white F3x. On color Bimmers the chrome grill blends with the headlights forming a plane of reflection across the front facia.

I'm keeping my car a while and I don't wish to prematurely wear out its engine or transmission for paltry/phantom savings. I tried ASS when I first got the car and didn't consider it refined either....
