Yeah I put it in Sport mode but the steering didn't change much. Still very loose. It just changed gears at higher RPMs.

I really don't like the direction of the new BMWs. The engine felt more smooth and powerful but it drives like a Lexus.

Someone was saying if you get the active steering then it feels tighter. ...

Thanks for clarifying guys.

One more thing. Why does my "Vehicle inspection" in my I Drive says 12/2030? That's far away.

I thought the dealer is the only one who can reset the service lights. I know the TPMS light you can reset yourself.

I just checked the vehicle settings and something doesn't look right. Next oil change says 8/2017 and 1000 MLS. Shouldn't it say 8/2016 if its 1000 miles left? I can't change the date. It's a...

Mine is also a 2013 model. Maybe the standard BMW service calls for 15k mile oil changes. I just looked up the new 10k mile and that supposedly applied to 2014+ models. Not sure why.

High beam malFunction?

Is the high beam supposed to stay on when you pull the left lever, of steering wheel, toward you? I thought it did but mine does not stay on.

E70 aluminum body?

Is our car aluminum or steel? I would assume aluminum since most of the audis nowadays are aluminum.

Aluminum or steel

Are newer beemers generally aluminum or steel body? I was told that my 2013 x5 was steel body.
