I am selling a set of Pirelli Scorpion Ice & Snow winter tires mounted on the original Style 111 17" for a E83 X3. The tires have a lot of life left, as they were used for 2 seasons (in the South,...

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 am quite interested in autonomous cars. I still like driving but 80% of the time, I'd rather relax and let the computers figure it out for me (probably better driver than I am anyway). Plus there's...

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.

At that kind of mileage, it is time for new struts. If you do a search, it seems like a handful of people (me inclusive) start running into problems in the 100-120k mls (160-200k km) range. The X3...

I've never been thru to Italy, but the A8 is probably my least favourite autobahn in Germany and of course it's the main one SE towards Austria and eventually Italy. Hässlich!

You can adjust the bottom seat angle on any vehicle with electric seats (standard or sport seats). Perhaps levelling out the seat cushion will reduce any pressure points on the thigh.
