That may be Southern California, but that does not represent the whole of the US.

I do not see many of them in the Southeast; the F25 X3 outnumbers it by a ton. They sell well in parts of Canada...

I don't generally fly trans-continental US and haven't been to the left coast since 2006. Since CLT is the closest major city (2 hr drive), I usually fly US Airways since they service the cities I...

Bonus: Most businesses and many petrol stations in Canada have switched to the EMV chip cards as well so having one is a bonus even on this side of the Atlantic.

Because 'murica is just behind.

I was in the minority and used my moonroof all the time. Never broke after 10 years, although admittedly I was diligent on cleaning out the rails and lubing as needed.

Given how much trouble BMW has selling the X1 in the US, it makes no sense to even bring the diesel here.

Get a Ford Fiesta......The E83 is quite thirsty on fuel and keeping it maintained properly is not something a 18 year old can do without the support of parents.

My 2 cents would be for the former. Although I am a fan of both brands for their consistent performance, BMWs equipped in the US with the latter have surprisingly long braking distances. Then again,...

When I had the X3, I replaced the fuel filter at 150k km (93k mls) as a preventative maintenance item...and I also tend to do a lot of freeway driving. Never noticed any stuttering.

There's always multiple redundancies built into any sort of automated system. Commercial aircraft have been able to land themselves for years now, and that's arguably more complex than driving.

I'm lucky I love on a road that has not one, but two outlets (BP and Shell) that offer a non-ethanol pump with premium. Priced about 1,15$/litre. Still cheaper than Europe.
