BMW 5 - small-overlap crash test

Saw this today - the 5 Series (and Lincoln MKS) did not do well on the new IIHS Small Overlap Crash test. Due to this result, the 5 Series is not eligible for the "Top Safety Pick" designation. ...

I don't worry about it (anymore, at least). Hotels in large cities, private clubs, NYC garages - all tend to have valet parking. BMWs are very common and I have never had an issue.

I went from a 2011 to a 2014 no-line (pretty much to avoid the 19" wheels). I noticed that the audio volume/on/mute knob is looser or flimsier than the last car. I haven't really noticed the...

Nice to hear from another NYC driver. I'm in NJ and drive into NY most weekdays. I just replaced a 2011 with a 2014 535xi. I was so tempted by the "lines" or M-sport, but as I drove down West...

My car is to be evaluated by a company called AutoVIN, not by a dealer. Once AutoVIN turns in their report, is there any room for negotiation with the dealer?

Maybe I've just been lucky. Park in NY garages almost every day and nothing ever taken. Same for NJ dealer - never a problem. I leave coins, iPod, sunglasses.

I only use winter washer fluid, never water. I'll have to try it again this evening - it's in an underground garage now so hopefully above freezing (though it is single-digits today).
