Had the '12 335 (which I only kept because I added Dinan's Shockware to the adaptive sport suspension). Four years later, '17 M3. The M3 is a fine daily machine, if you select those settings. For the...

Five month update on the vibrating inside rearview mirror - on a road trip the Bay Area last November, it was still a totally unacceptable nightmare. When on I 5, you need to know who's behind you at...

Thanks very much, Tim - I forgot to mention I have a Mophie battery pack on the phone, but the Plus might take it. Cheers

iPhone Holders for '17 M3

Can't believe I'd ever have to ask for help on something so silly as this, but it seems that starting January 1 there is a new law in California that says you can't hold your iPhone in your hand,...

Just a simple follow-up after last weekend with the '17 M3 on CA Hwy 1 over two days, and the merits of the Adaptive Suspension; superb car no matter what mode I was in. To spend several hours in...

Simple update, after almost a month; just got the car back after it's 1,200 mi service. The dealer says BMW is aware of the fact that some inside mirrors can vibrate as bad as mine does (when it...

'17 M3 Inside Mirror Vibration

Ok - here we go. Let the '12 335 Sportline go (fine car with Dinan Shockware installed). I've had the M3 for three days and 200 miles on LA's streets and freeways, and while it's overall superb so...

Thanks

Thanks ya-zook - I'll go that way too. It's not like the weight-savings of the carbon roof will make a bankable difference - and LA is hotter than ever. Cheers

Moon / Steel Roof on '16 M3

Hi all - close to ordering a '16 M3 and selling the '12 335i Sportline with the Dinan Shockware - but not in love with the "two-tone" look of the car thus far. Probably going to go with the Mineral...

F30 Shockware After 3 Years

Dear Clueless - I have to say the purchase and installation of Dinan's Shockware in my 2012 F30 was and still is, the best thing I could have done for the car. Every time I drive a loaner it just...

I was told by Crevier BMW that if I decided I "didn't like" the Shockware, I could bring the car back in and have it "deleted". I assume that you could do the same thing just before your lease is up...

Last word - after two weeks and 700 miles, the $568 spent on both the Shockware and installation is simply the best $568 I've ever spent in terms of cost/benefit. And as a ransom payment to BMW to...
