I find the audio quality unlistenable, at least with the tuner hardware in my F10. It's a little better, though not good, in my wife's Volvo.

People don't seem to care, though - people like the...

I've thought about doing that, too. If I owned the car, I think I would. There's a little too much throwaway spend there for me to do it in a lease, though - assuming I would have to back all the...

That's all true, I agree completely. BMW sells as many F10s as they build. The F10 is a different recipe that appeals to a different buyer than the E60 or E39 did. Personally, I liked the previous...

I agree. All wheel drive is 100% about hills, and specifically going up them. When they are snowy.

This is what I'm saying. There was a time, as recently as 6 or 7 years ago, when I would gladly pay $10,000 more for a BMW than for a competing car, because the BMW was so much more engaging to...

My opinion of the F3X interior changes by the day. When I was at the dealer last year buying my F10, I sat in an F30 and decided I could never own one. On the other hand, when I attended the drive...

Same here in Denver. There are exactly zero RWD cars on BMW lots here, except those few where AWD is not available.

I've definitely had that thought. But my car is a lease, so I'd have to pay $500 for the springs, $600 to put them on, and $600 to take them off at the end. At that rate, I might as will just let...

That seems to be the consensus from people on the F10 board as well. I've heard it's especially true with the LCI.
