When it comes to manufacturing, getting the process right matters a lot more than where the product is built. Toyota had concerns when they first started building cars in the U.S but they were...

Yes I remember trying tyre as well and didn't have luck. I think there was a problem with the format of the xml file it created.

Thanks for your post on the 640 vs 535. I'm a little confused by your conclusion because you seem to say that its both worth it and not worth it.
A few more questions if you don't mind (and then...

Not really a fan of all that silver on the dash either. Gives it sort of a Japanese car or 80s boombox vibe. I hope that its all real aluminum atleast and not just coated plastic (in which case it...

Wow sounds like Porsche really came through for your friend!

Off topic but what are your thoughts on the 535 vs 640 gc since you own both? The 640 is my current "dream car" within BMWs range.

Of course I'd look at total cost of ownership. But my gut feeling is that it would be very close over a 3 year lease period. I'm hung up more than usual because neither choice stands out as a clear...

Yes it would relative to its msrp. But it would still be much cheaper than an s4 - probably in the same ballpark as a 3 series. Therein lies the conundrum- do I like the golf r so much more that I'd...

This strikes me more as inept corporate greed because mistakes like this are way more costly to fix than doing it right in the first place. Bad for everyone : customers, managers and shareholders.

Unfortunatley ,yes. There's no way to get 704 with xdrive on the 5 series. Best you can do is order DHP which gets you active sways and adjustable shocks.

NOt only that but if every car had it, traffic jams would be greatly reduced. I actually think its worth mandating that all cars have it over any other new regualration.

European Delivery pricing for 2016 production

Yep- you will pay a much higher lease price for the a7 than even a 640 gc. Audi is in another league when it comes to lease prices unfortunately
