Commuting to San Francisco

I would be reluctant to try and commute to San Francisco from my home and return without charging in the city. It might be possible, but it would not leave much room for the inevitable traffic jam....

My i3 Experience

I attended the i3 ride and drive at Concord BMW one month ago. I had previously owned a Leaf and have spent a lot of wheel time with my friend's Tesla Model S. My feeling is that the Leaf is rather a...

Diesel Wagon

I am going to write a check to the first German manufacturer who offers a 4WD diesel wagon here in the US. I just hope it will be BMW.

Soft close automatic doors

As I read the 2012 build guide, soft close automatic doors are no longer available for the 535. It's not in the premium package and the convenience package is only for the 550.

Cars are like wines

No one can argue with your own taste preferences and in that regard, cars are like wines. I say you should head to your dealer and drive the 5 and 7 back to back, and see how the various options...

A lone voice of dissention

Although I expected to get flamed for my opinion, I was not a happy owner of a 2009 750i, which I drove for two months before selling.

I love BMW and have owned 26 of them in my lifetime. I still...

Residual values of the new 7

I was all set to lease a new 750 until I learned about the residual values. BMW has apparently lost enough money through subventing the residuals of the outgoing model that it has set the residual...

Manuals in the trunk

It turned out that having the manuals in the trunk got in the way of the top operation. Don't leave anything on the sides of the trunk!

My top is stuck

I took delivery of a 335 convertible over the weekend and am enjoying it very much. I would say it is 85-90% of the performance of the coupe. My car does not have the sport package and the 17 inch...

I would not own a 335 without it

I suppose I am in the minority but I would not own a 335 without active steering. It does take a little time to get used to, but I much prefer the ease of turning the wheel at low speeds. I am an...

Swapped out my run flat tires

I just sold my first 335 and picked up another with the equipment I wanted. While I was at it, I purchased a nice set of BBS wheels and Michelin Pilot Sport non run flat tires. The vehicle has the...

Well, it sounds like the three of us are BMW/Mercedes lovers. I just picked up a 645 last month and also drive a CL600. The CL is more GT than sporting car and overall I would pick the BMW as my...

I want to switch

I am thinking of switching away from run flats even though I have a 645 with the 18 inch wheels. Is there any problem using the stock BMW 18 inch wheels with tires other than run flats?
