I sometimes consider other options, sometimes tediously consider _all_ my other options (much to my patient wife's dismay), and other times I just order another BMW without looking anywhere else....

I may just be very fortunate, but BMWNA has always worked diligently to resolve any issues I've had over the years. My experience, though, is that the process begins and ends with the dealership (and...

Just aesthetically, I hate that they divided the side blade into two pieces now. I always thought it was such a cool, unique feature before.

I have. It will be interesting to see how that comes to life.

I have to say, much as I love the Panamera, I spent some time in the E-Hybrid version a year ago and walked away completely uninspired.

Speaking of the Panamera, I saw some spy shots of the redesign (and the alleged shooting brake version that's coming with it), so I can't wait to see the final version in the metal. I love that...

That's great to hear.

I've been around forums like this for a long time, with varying levels of involvement, so I don't get too caught up in the opinions of others. After all, I owned a few E65s,...

Yeah, exactly. The good thing is that you can see it light up on the display when auto-hold is actually engaged and working.

Exactly.

Much as I love Porsche -- yours is gorgeous, BTW -- one of the main reasons I won't consider one is the crappy dealership options for them locally. I'm renting a Macan next week in LA,...

That's the way the new transmission works. I push the auto-hold button now as a matter of habit, which resolves the issue and makes it work more like a traditional automatic.

My car went into production this month, so I unfortunately just missed the key change. I ordered the Display Key, but am already wondering if I'll like it, given the (ridiculous) size.
