Does this require the car to be connected to a power supply? Or simply with engine on?

I found the email option pretty much useless. Any email I get is considerably longer than I care to read (or have read to me) while driving.

Last used audio source?

I only flip between Bluetooth audio and presets... But, the car defaults to either sat or fm view if the car has been sitting for a while. Any chance there is a code to start presets first?

If speed is your thing, get the 550. No question about it.

If you want a gas engine that blends performance and value, get the 535i.

If you don't mind the diesels, the 535d adds gas mileage...

I just got a diesel myself, and frankly I had the same exact decision to make between the 550 and 535d. I too drive about 15k miles per year, so monthly gas prices do add up quick.

I debadged both my cars, and I must admit on the 535i, I thought nothing of it.

When I debadged my 535d, all I could think of is people will mistake this for a 528i. We all have to agree that to...

RR Ghost Coding

So I had the opportunity to code my dad's 2014 Rolls Royce Ghost, and as expected, it does use the F01 7 series computer. I didn't have a problem connecting or coding most of the same as I did on the...

5 series tire and wheel insurance

I was slightly ahead on my last car. Paid $1000/3years, got 2 nails @ $550 each and then got a $300 prorated discount as I only had a 2 year lease.

I drive I95 between Miami and Ft. Lauderdale on...

I used floss, then polished... I do live in FL, so I did leave the car outside until nice and hot, so if you're in a cold climate, hair dryer might help.

I just got a 2015 F10 on a 3 year lease. This is great, since it will allow some of the beta testers out there to work out the kinks by the time my lease is up and I'm up to renew.
