I wouldn't tip. I don't cash tip limo drivers in the US because it's baked into the bill (unless I have a good run in Vegas).

I'm not sure if the Zoll plate is in your name or not, but I got tagged in a rental car and the company was kind enough to forward my information to the police for a small fee.

However, the police...

Spotted an i8 in the wild

They're in front of an advertising firm in Santa Monica, so I'm assuming they're getting ready for a photo shoot.

Never noticed engine braking? That's the first thing I noticed when I test drove my car.

Anyway, heavy steering is a common complaint in the E9x but absolutely normal.

That seems reasonable. Maybe you could stay at the Sheraton or the Hilton Garden Inn in FRA and then pick up your rental car early morning. It's about a 4 hour drive to Munich.

There are direct flights to Munich all over the east coast. In fact, Lufthansa flies direct to Munich from EWR and JFK.

Why don't you fly to Munich? Lufthansa has direct flights that cost the same as LAX<->FRA. If you're flying business class though, I'd do LAX<->FRA just because the seats are better.

I have an E92, and regarding these EPS issues I can honestly say the current versions of EPS (MY2013 and newer) have as good a feel as hydraulic power steering.

I'm not sure where people get this impression about electric power steering (EPS), but if EPS fails you still have steering it's just not assisted.

I'm thinking of getting a diesel as a second car (either 535d or A6 TDI), but I think it's pretty silly to put in tax incentives.

I'd at least rent wheels/tires. If it was my car I'd just pay the 75 euros and flat bed it to the drop off point and rent a car from Sixt (my preferred rental car company in Deutschland).

Thanks for the info. I'm not on a ED, but I went out on a lap with Sabine Schmitz on Monday the 23ed.

Her car is the Porsche that is white with a red hood that says Früh on the hood.

Anybody use a chip and sign card? My primary gas card was replaced with a chip and sign card so no pin necessary which I'm sure will confuse the attendant.

That leaves the Clio and the Saxo if you want to be sure (those are early 90's).
