I might flash a grin, that's about it. E39 and 6 Grand Coupes usually earn a full smile.

More recent model years have solved the problem by making the DRL the turn signal itself. It turns yellow and starts blinking.

What do people need this for? Am I supposed to upgrade my car every 24 months now like I am expected to upgrade my phone? My E90 non-iDrive with the Bluetooth module works just fine. The only thing I...

I noticed the B pillar buzz in my car during the test drive with 15 miles on the odometer. That should've been an idea of what was to come... The car isn't unlivable when it comes to rattles, but it...

I would not be surprised to see a diesel F30 (OK, probably an F31) sitting in the parking lot of Whole Foods in 2034. Yeah, its TPMS light will probably be permanently on and some non-essential...

It seems to me when you have 2.0T fourbangers pumping out 240-270hp today, it's making the "300hp" turbo I6 look a bit more wheezy than it did in 2007.

I'm a bit at a loss as to why all these guys who apparently want minimum 0-60 times are wasting their hard earned dollars on 335s. Just buy a $30k Mustang GT and be done with it.

You'll soon get accustomed to just pressing the blinker lever to the resistance point to change lanes. I think I only canceled the blinker once the improper way. I felt like such an idiot that it...

It looks quite floaty. Are we sure that is not a 4GC body on some Buick from the 70s?

When it is below freezing out, I don't need drier air. There is already little moisture in the air. These are the same engineers who decided we need to hear a chime at 37 degrees.

I don't how you can miss them. On my car they spray everywhere (I can see the mist blasting up on the hood) plus I can hear the pumps going crazy.

I've found if it's more than about 50 degrees outside, I need the A/C on for the climate control system to be able to maintain 70 degrees. Otherwise it is too warm, as you noticed.

I think most of the E90 328 automatic transmissions were built (by GM) in France, although the Monroney sticker for mine built in mid 2011 says Germany.
