Chris,
don't panic. There will be no change because of this election - they have no authority to set speed limits on the Autobahn since they belong to the country and not the state of Ba-Wü. The...

If you want a BMW diesel in the US you're apparently limited to a 3-series sedan or an X5 and the X5 is not an option for ED, so that leaves you with the 335d sedan via ED.

Yea but it doesn't matter on the return journey. If your bag is held up someplace the airline will get it back to your house usually the next day anyway.

Why don't you guys just put the kit in your check-in luggage? If you do that you won't have any problems with security checks.

Don't see it happening. The CDU would do a deal with the Greens but a national speed limit would not be on the agenda.

Active-steering is not going to help you out there - its biggest effect is at lower speeds, where it magnifies the effect when you turn the wheel. So, you are right, that a 'minor' move of the...

I'm guessing it is just the entry/exit door where it is tight. Otherwise, I'd recommend retrofitting the 'ejector seat' option - just make sure the garage roof is high enough.

As Norm already said, 255/55 R18 with a load rating of 109 is a BMW specification for 18" wheels. These tires would fit on an X5 wheel of 8.5x18 with a 46 offset.

I'd like them to one day make a 5-series touring where the tailgate doesn't rust. You'd think that would be pretty simple to do - no moving parts and all.
