I got my car in April 2010. The first oil change was free at 5000 miles. I had to pay for 1 oil change, at about $100. I have 17,000 miles.

I'll need to get one again in March. Not sure where...

The 2010 5 door version. Not the coupe from 2001. I used to own one when I lived in SoCal and could have 2 cars. It was like $18,000 new.

It also has LED tail lights.

There's a lot of cars under $20,000 that have xenons. The Honda Insight comes to mind. I think BMW and Audi use a higher quality bulb with whiter light and a better projector, but still. Most...

It would be about a $2500 option. No xenons or halogens. Just a cluster of about 75 LEDs with more candle power than xenons, aimed with a lens.

Why isn't BMW being a technology leader with LED forward lighting? Xenon is the least they can do. Halogen is very old tech.

The stock trim of an S4 has more "sport" than even a 335i M Sport, if that matters.

The 2013 S5 with the supercharged engine is $3000 less than the outgoing V8, coming in at $47,338 invoice. The...

The S4 just turned 2 years old. I've just gotten into a good grove racing it, but will bore of it. Can't wait for that M3 in 2 years. That's my car flip timeline.

Can anyone confirm this is true? A passive differential in the center is all I've ever heard of. On the sedans for sure. SUV tech I have no idea about. Link?

The inside wheel slip lets all of the power escape the system. In other words, if the inside wheel can only put down 90 ft/lb of torque than the whole drivetrain is lowered to that level.

DSC braking is not good on a track at all. It slows the momentum of the car at a very critical point in the turn, where you are normally under power. To be fair, in the e90 you had to be carrying...

Well, these are dimpled/slotted right? Slotted is perfectly OK. In the largest sizes (over 360mm or approaching 15") there aren't really solid rotors to be found - they are always at least slotted.

That is critical. Implies good design and makes the labor easier than taking off the wheel.

Like. Is that $2500 for fronts only, or for all 4 corners? It's a good deal even at fronts only. If you're going to track this you'll need to spend another $350 per axle for some Pagid Yellow...

The variance in stopping distances is actually due to tire pressure. I think BMW still recommends 32 pounds cold PSI. That gets up to about 39-40 hot. Run it at 35 PSI and you might get 107 feet. ...

I love the 335is. Looks great. All 3 series should be that good. BMW is so obsessed with making 3 classes of 3 series owners. That car is first class.

Is that a "modern" line? I really like the chrome accent on the rear bumper. That's not included on the sport model, right?
