I like the Bentley write-ups better. I have both Haynes and Bentley for my 911. I will say that I've found torque setting errors in both, so don't just take them for granted. Make sure they make...

My 2013 has been very reliable. Not perfect, but based on the number of Japanese recalls, neither have they been. I have a 2003 M5 that's well out of warranty with 141k miles and reliability has...

The weatherstripping is still secure. No excessive blow by anymore. Now I just do the normal engine cleaning to remove dust buildup.

I never tried just holding the touch lock point on the handle. This is much easier than the key method. This is why I love car forums. I always learn something.

Closing windows and sunroof outside of the car

One of the features I've always liked about BMWs is being able to close the windows and sunroof from outside the car. Especially useful if the car is open and a sudden rain comes up. I use it on my...

Easy decision for me. E39 M5 is only available in manual.

Advantage - my teenage son hasn't learned to drive a manual so the M is safe. I tried to teach him on a 79 911 and his foot got stuck...

That's one of the easiest questions I've seen here. If you can find a professional to do it for $400-$500 then let them. I wasn't given those rates.

Activate auto hold and I bet it works as you recall. After my software update ASS only activates in park and with auto hold on. Much less intrusive. I'm not saying a word to BMW.
