It can call emergency response after a crash automatically. That can help me survive if I can't make that call on my own; in my view that's a safety feature. It also has auto insurance benefits as...

Why can't we go in and purchase this retrofit even if we don't have an active subscription? My BMW Assist subscription expired in Jan 2016 and BMW didn't reach out to me at all about renewing it. I...

6/2011 South African build, I had two new coils earlier this year after CELs under heavy acceleration... I am kind of annoyed that all of them weren't replaced.

Let's face it, the automatic transmission of today is a really good machine. They have more forward gears which means better acceleration and fuel economy, plus they can shift faster than humans can.

Not a bad idea, but on many back roads around New England this means you would probably be driving 35mph or less most of the time.

I might flash a grin, that's about it. E39 and 6 Grand Coupes usually earn a full smile.

More recent model years have solved the problem by making the DRL the turn signal itself. It turns yellow and starts blinking.

It seems to me when you have 2.0T fourbangers pumping out 240-270hp today, it's making the "300hp" turbo I6 look a bit more wheezy than it did in 2007.

When it is below freezing out, I don't need drier air. There is already little moisture in the air. These are the same engineers who decided we need to hear a chime at 37 degrees.
