Same here. One reason I liked this car (2008 528xi) so much is the fit and finish. The doors shut nicely every time without a slam or a push.

My daily driver is a 2008 528 xi. I'm averaging a little over 28 mpg so I'm not racing you all but I think the car is respectable. I've owned some pretty decent cars and I think this 528 is a good...

I didn't even realize when I bought a used 528 that it had traffic information included in the navigation package. I guess it is paid up for four years from the date of original purchase. I wonder...

Not to be a smart-alec here, but I use my smartphone. The three year old maps in the on board navigation system have led me on a wild goose chase too many times. The phone updates automatically and...

Thanks for that, PimoX3, That makes sense. Some car I previously owned had that sort of limit detection on the power windows. All the way up and then up again and all the way down and down again. ...

For sure I can move the steering wheel by pressing that button. I just thought it would be obvious that when I shut off the key and open the door, I'm going to get out and so it would make it easier...

I'm very new to our 2008 528xi and I've had a leased 2009 GS350. The Lexus was reliable but it ought to be for such an expensive car. It was OK. I like the Bimmer a lot better. It seems more...
