You signed a contract and the car is yours. When a deal hits our funding and the dealer makes an error, we'll shortfund the deal. Just means the dealer will eat the error. May mean he just makes...

Might want to show it to a Dent Wizard type shop. The crease might present a problem, but I've seen them do some pretty fantastic work. Just went through painting two of my doors on my new F10. My...

I find the knuckle works pretty good by hitting the end of the button to the side of the graphic. Just realized how stupid that sounds. Why can't BMW design a graphic that doesn't wear out?

The RE960AS RFT does not come in a 245-40-19. I've been waiting for Bridgestone to add our size with no luck. Best match is a 245-45-19. Not sure why you're having a problem if that's the size,...

The LS2 is an all-season RF, so it comes with all 535 XI's. The main complaints come from those with M-Sport or Sport packages in the 245-40-19 size. The other XI models come with the LS2's, but in...
