The top motor isn't 400-600 lbs. There's tons of reinforcement going on throughout the chassis and especially the doors. The windshield frame also has to be able to support the car in the event of a...

I think you mean a 328GT. I dunno, but I think you might be surprised just how differently the 3 and 4-series drive. DHP definitely had something to do with it, but I think the 4-series is just a...

Thanks Kat! And wow! I had no idea they dropped the manual option! You should definitely hold onto your 328/6MT then. Truly last of breed. The 8-speed automatic is pretty slick though. Fast and FIRM...

The car is zippy around town when you can keep it in the torque band, but as you wind the engine out the "lack of power" and top-end is very apparent. Yes, ripping through the gears like crazy and...

The top-spec x28 N52 offered after detuning, the 2011 528i 240hp/230tq variant, would have been perfect for the 428i. There'd hardly have been any difference in performance vs the N20/N26, and the...

Did you test drive one? I've been about as vocal as anybody on the loss of the NA I-6 engines and these silly EPS racks, but this one with DHP and 255/40R18 rubber was nice and tight feeling. DHP...

Not sure if it's any different on the F33, but on the E93 Comfort Access lets you open and close the hardtop from your key fob. Pretty cool.

It definitely looked fantastic, but that's a bit loud of a color for us, and believe me it got "attention". 240hp isn't enough for the color. LOL. M-Sport in Estoril Blue you pretty much HAVE to go...

I scored a week of seat time in the F33 428i RWD and for the most part I thought it was fine. Lots of torque and aggressive gearing made it pretty zippy around town. But yes, keep your foot planted...

My old late-1990's Nissan Maxima with a 5MT would do 0-60 in the mid-6s range, and I considered that to be about perfect. Enough to be entertaining, but not so much that you end...
