I think that if the price of diesel came down to somewhere between regular and premium you would see the sales of diesel powered cars take off. Interesting that the stories that are written on this...

This continues to be the single biggest reason that diesels have not caught on more in the USA. In most places, diesel is at least as expensive as premium and often more so. Many people who are...

Costco, Top Tier gasoline. 93 Octane in Maryland. When traveling, try to fill up with Shell, Exxon or BP, all Top Tier gas.

Are the Coupe and Gran Coupe built on separate assembly lines? To me, and leaving engines out of it for now, it makes no sense whatsoever to facelift any of the 4's without doing them all at the...

2016 F36 Production

When does 2015 production end and 2016 production start for the 4xx F36? I am interested in this car, but we have to be close to the end of MY2015 production and it may be worth waiting for the...

God, RFTs are the worst. Take your pick, more noise, worse handling, more expensive, not as available, etc. After two tries with RFTs on my E90, I gave up at 20K and went to Michelin Pilot GFTs...

I'm not too worried about it either. Will be glad when some overall specs, EPA fuel numbers, etc start to be revealed. I think the 340 LCI will be fantastic.

I think we will see no more than a 10% power bump on either the B48 or B58 engines, but they should be a little more efficient (1-2mpg). The big plus with both of them is that it puts BMW on the...

After a lifetime of manual transmissions, I drove an F30 (328i) today. Given the other comments on this thread, maybe it was just this car, but I found the shifter WAY TOO notchy and coarse. My E39...

I just hope the new 5er does not "grow" in length, but does lose significant weight. This car could use a 200kg diet to say the least.
