Agree. It's your car - dress it the way you want, or not. You don't need someone else's opinion about what looks good to you.

Mangaged to get curb rash the day after buying the car. Found a guy in town who did a creditable job for $125.

Do you happen to know if this would also work on the E60 (mirror connection)?

Soft close was not a "must have" option for me when I searched for my 2011 550i, but it did come with the car packages and I am really glad it did. It's a small thing that you probably don't miss if...

2011 550i - no rust noticed. Although water does collect in and around these tips (even when washing the car) I've not seen any rust, thank God.

Go with the 550. The wife has the E60 535, which is a great car, and it is plenty fast. But the 550 is a whole different level of available power. It is truly a joy to drive. (I traded my E60 550 for...

That's the best choice, imho. I tend to have the same driving "attitude" and preferences as your mom and the 550i with MSport suits me perfectly.

I did exactly that (trade) a couple of months ago. They will give you a very conservative trade=in allowance, no matter how much better than that you think your car is. I traded my E60 for my F10....

Compared to the "cup holders" in my 08 E60 the ones in my 11 F10 are a dramatic improvement. No problems with mine to this point.

BMW F10 front seats and back pain

I traded my E60 two months ago for a 2011 F10; both cars with M Sport pkg and multi-contour seats. For whatever reason I could never find the "correct" position for the driver's seat in my E60. In...

I recently went with the Blendmount for my Escort. Very happy with it. Attaches to mirror (just below). No worries about suction cups giving way. Detaches easily to allow for safekeeping.

No problems so far, but I've ditched the runflats in favor of Michelin A/S 3's. Also our roads are great when compared to other cities/parts of the country.

I'm kinda partial to the M Sport pkg stock wheels; one of my reasons for going with the 550i with M Sport. Aftermarket wheels generally take away from the car's appearance imho.
