I used to shoot Formula 1, so I picked up all of my gear with an eye on portability, but I've recently started doing a lot more portraiture, airplanes, and landscape. In the bag:

I asked a friend of mine (who has finished on the podium at SCCA Nationals) and he recommends 35-38 psi on the fronts to reduce the blistering/chunking. The tires won't be warrantied because of the...

I used to work for a stealership and I recall seeing new cars sold as used because a buyer had refused to take delivery after signing all of the documents.

My F80 has two horns, and I know that only because one went bad and had to be replaced. Yours should also have two.

If your car sits for long periods without being driven, the battery can slowly discharge. Using the tender slowly pulses power to it to keep it fresh.

Bastiano, unfortunately the free maintenance doesn't apply overseas. That's a perk offered to cars in America. The warranty is different as well, because when I bought my 2011 M3 in the UK I was...

Did you get a copy of the alignment sheet after the dealer finished working on it? I'd post my alignment sheet, but I only have a screenshot of the car's numbers when it was bad.

Nope! It's not normal. Mine did the same thing and a dealer alignment finally fixed it. It drives sooo nice when the alignment is correct.
