I have '08 535xiT Titanium Silver with Creamy Beige and the walnut trim; it looks fantastic! The Creamy Beige for '08 is lighter than the std beige of the last few years (for the e60 anyway) and it...

Many congrats. You've seen the light and have come to the realization that those "other" cars have no soul. I had a similar experience in early '98 when my dealer let me keep a demo 328i with sport...

So, they're trying to convince me that I will be safer in a Kia than in my 535xi. That's a good one. Better life through statistics. Read the report and test data carefully. Watch the video...

Done deal. It was the drain plug and it was an exhaust manifold oxygen sensor. There was just barely enough room to loosen the drain plug, just not enough room to completely remove the plug. That...

I have an issue with my engine block drain plug. I have the tip sheet from Pelican Parts, but on my '98 328i there's an exhaust pipe oxygen sensor right in front of the drain plug; it doesn't look...

The e60/61 xi wheels have an offset of ET43 (in 8" wide rims), all other E60/61 (non-xi) have ET20 offset. This is important to note since these are the only wheels in the entire BMW line that have...

Three possibilities:
1. He's on medication
2. He's on someone else's payroll
3. He's actually driving something else

My 535xi (step) is smooth and fast. Not a jitter in its bones. I've driven...

I had the same question to answer. I plan to keep the car for perhaps 10 years (I still have my '98 328i sedan, 140k miles and barely broken in). I test drove an '07 530xi wagon and was not...

You're going to love the car. I just picked mine up in Munich on 6/22 (Euro Delivery) and spent the day on the Autobahn; there are not enough A's in faaaaast and not enough O's in smooooth to...

If you are reasonably profescient mechanically, the BMW is actually a joy to work on. Replacing brake pads, rotors, fluids, etc. is not that difficult for the home wrencher. You can save gobs of...

'72 Vega, sky blue. Hand me down from my step father. I learned how to twist wrenches on that car. Blew a piston skirt and it scored the aluminum block, plugs would fail sporadically and without...

I've heard good things about the clear bra. I will be adding one to my '07 or '08 328xi wagon (arctic silver). I have a '98 328i (jet black) that gets 20k miles a year, almost all highway miles. I...

We may have to wait a long time for BMWNA to bring the 335i/xi wagon to the US. Look at their history with the 3-series wagons; they have always only brought in the smallest engine available, and...
