It's going to be hard for BMW to let go of the profit they're making on $2500 navigation systems. Plus, I don't see them as too excited to open up their hardware architecture to be able to interface...

Depending on model - it's actually $3500 on a 5 series. Amazing, no? So, on an xDrive 5 series, you pay about $2500 for xDrive itself and then $3500 for DHP - a whopping $6000 premium over a...

Not what I meant at all. The cars I've owned but _did not_ list were the unremarkable ones. 1997 Mitsubishi Montero Sport, for example. I edited the OP, because I can see how you read it that way....

Not sure. Obviously there was a police report, so I imagine the case will proceed down that route, and it seems like we have manslaughter now. Civil, and financially, anyone's guess is as good as...

Lost a Friend in a Motorcycle Accident

Normally I would post something like this on Facebook, but that is where all the grief is going on in my neighborhood, and I feel like it's better to be silent about it there for a while.

I thought specifically of you when I was driving the cars, because you and I had traded a couple ideas about these 4 series last week. The white 435 I drove was definitely an xDrive car. I made...

What I Learned at the Un4gettable Drive Event

I attended the drive event today.

I'm on my third BMW, which is an xDrive F10 535 with DHP, following a RWD E60 545 Sport and an E53 X5. I also owned a 1987 Audi 4000S and a 2004 Audi allroad,...

Buying a new 2014 535i

Next to each other, I thought the F36 made the F10 look like it had a couple pounds to lose. The interior didn't bother me nearly as much as I remember. Although the expanse of black plastic...

I just got back from the Un4gettable drive event. I'm not sure why anyone would buy an F10 right now when the 4 Gran Coupe is an option. Unless you need to carry adults in the back often, the 4GC...

If it was a 435i xDrive M-Sport without DHP, it would have had that same squishy suspension.

I agree with your assertions, although the guys in Colorado get a credit card number from me whenever I get a loaner too. I've never seen a charge, though.
