Interesting to see so many people not use the hand brake. I have always used it regardless of transmission. I see no good reason not to use it. "Maybe" if you were storing the car for a long time,...

Xenon brightness

This is a silly question that I probably know the answer to. Do Xenon bulbs lose brightness over time? I have an '07 E92 and it seems like the lights used to be brighter. My wife drives a '14 F30,...

I went with Formula One 30%. The car is AW Sport Line, and the tint looks great. If you are around there (I'm a little ways away and still drove down) you can't go wrong at this place.
