^^ Agree on both fronts. I used (as do many forum members) Chevron Techron fuel additive every 3~6k miles in my N63 equipped 650i. I will be doing the same in my M5. If this additive isn't...

No this is funny. ^^

And I never used the word dead.

Wheel mass doesn't affect CG (with respect to handling) since it is unsprung - unless you are planning on going airborn. But the lighter...

I guess we disagree on "lively". I do not disagree with the traction advantages of AWD, but an ever shifting torque distribution does not make for (what I consider) lively handling. This does not...

Without doubt all BMW xDrives have hydraulic steering. Just look under the hood. You can see the pump and hoses. I cannot find the tech manual for the F12/13, but here is the 7 series manual for...

Don't get me wrong, I am a fan of xDrive, but you and I must have completely different definitions of lively. There is no way a heavier, more forward mass biased, higher PMI car feels livelier than...

You said: "There is a log of my car in 5th gear.. Usually 15-16 psi, can go just a bit above 16 some times." No indication of your car on BMS tune, so I had no way of knowing this "fact".

Totally agree on the app feature. Thought of this the other day when a strong wind actually tripped my alarm. Fortunately I was at work and a co-worker notified me.

I know the difference between the S63 and the S63Tu. I meant that the Tu was released and remains at 1.5 bar peak boost with a 10:1 CR. The only thing that changed was BMW implemented an electronic...

There has been no compression increase on the Tu over the years. If they had, the engine would have a new code. Please provide real evidence.

Click on the picture. Headlights are clearly painted. Yeah, not sure why wheel locks aren't std, but same question applies to a lot of things. You can bet I have locks on my M5.

X-drive might lower the Cg a smidgen, but it also swings weight bias more towards the front and hurts PMI (negatively affecting transient response). While the added front traction probably helps an...

She did him a favor by taking those lousy run flats.:rofl:

The headlights are still there, they are just painted black, taillights too. But there's paint all over the body too. Terrible.

With the HUD on my M5, I just turn up the brightness and crank the tilt to the left. It's still dimmer than without polarized glasses, but tolerable.

Keep it in Sport mode and keep driving aggressively:) You may actually be feeling a more power with the new injectors, flow sensor, etc., things are probably running better.

All you need is a good set of tires to solve you're 20" problems. The Contis are fine, Michelins are excellent. I put Hankook Ventus V2s on to save money and loved them.

BMWs have the brake drying feature, but it is intended to keep them dry, not hot. Maybe not sufficient for the CCBs.

I checked my records. Mine was actually a '90. Same as Joe's, charcoal with grey interior. Pretty loaded as I remember. The rear wing is molded PU foam. It's soft to the touch.
