It's entirely dependent upon the dealership. My local BMW shop has a fleet of loaners, but they often discourage your use of them for "short" service visits. And if you do want one, you may have to...

Trying to find verification of this is not easy, but it seems BMM has added some sort of "dynamic exhaust amplification" or "active sound" to the new 2014/2105 models. I test drove several 328i...

If you're "not rubbing at all except for when you rub" on the stock suspension, lowering the car isn't going to do you any favors. Either get wheels that fit correctly, or leave the car as-is or even...

The M-Sport vs. Sport Line is mostly cosmetic. Though there are some grievances I have with how BMW puts together these packages.

I would think you'd have no problem as long as you didn't let the bike rack or other object "hang" too far toward the rear of the car. The crossbars will be spaced correctly above the doors. Just...

You seem apprehensive about the mods, and you mentioned the ride was a bit stiff. You also said you would drive this car daily. If you want my opinion, I'd say pass on this one and look for another...

More often than not, my Carbon Black M3 looks black. Only in very bright sunlight does it pop blue. I kind of with it was slightly less dark.

New cars are all coming with active sound, which is some form of amplification of the natural exhaust note. (aka, not artificially simulated noise.)

The 4GC rear seat should be the same size as the 3 sedan and 3 wagon. The difference is in the sleek roof/greenhouse which will affect headroom and rear visibility.
