I had two E60's, a 2005 530 and a 2008 535 both with Sport Package and I'm now on my second F10. I hated the 2005 mostly because of the Active Steering but I really loved the 2008. It was due to be...

Next Gen M-Sport

I just saw some updated photos of the G-30 and I don't see any evidence of a hockey stick but I still really hate the new grill and headlight look. It may grow on me but for $75,000 I should LOVE it...

I would greatly appreciate your contact at Gentex. I'm sure there's a solution but it's going to have to come from someone who understands the issue. I'll check my PM and thanks.

And to Almaretto,...

I personally still like the E39 tailpipes that you couldn't even see. The duel round tailpipes on my 535 are about as ornamental as I want.

It's the front end on the ugly Lexti I can't stand. But...

I couldn't imagine not taking care of such a fine machine. As a former pilot the thought of of something so nice not being cared for meticulously makes me cringe.
