I too agree that it looks as though your tires are underinflated although the first tire looks like it might have a bit of an alignment issue but it is hard to tell. Probably obvious from the...

Here's a few crappy iPhone photos I just shot of the exhaust. Sorry the exhaust tips are a bit dirty as I am not the most fastidious with cleaning them (nor is my detailer). It definitely is way...

Do the xenons on LCI X3s utilize both lenses/cutouts in the headlight housing for high and low beams? In pre-LCI X3s with xenon, only the outer lens is used for both high and low beams (a mechanical...

It was fixed when I brought it in for its first oil change which all was done in the same day. They didn't need to replace any parts so it was just labor.

Same thing happened to me. It's just the leather flap that covers the gap so the thigh support should still be adjustable and function correctly. I tried to clip mine back in but it wouldn't stay so...

For me it has been but when I have passengers I only drive in Sport mode and deal with the extra gas being burned. I thought about tuning it out with a 1/4 wave or helmholtz resonator but I didn't...

I think all-in I paid around $2K with a 10% off coupon. Overall I like the Dinan tune and the extra power it generates. As for how it drives, I'd say that it definitely preserves the feel of the...

This is similar logic I used when I decided to install Dinan on my 35i, except it was to stave off my desire for the Macan for a few more years,. Given that the price differential was closer to $30K...
