F15 is not ugly

I don't get why so many people are critical of the F15s design. I see more and more on the road (now that I'm actually looking for them) and they look imposing and modern. Big upgrade in the front...

Mine had the logo and I told the dealer to remove it before I drove off the lot. Not an issue at all. In fact, they totally understood. They would do it for their own cars.

I think you just need to decide on two things: how often your entire family will be traveling together. 5 people in an X5 will get old if you have to do it frequently. Doable, but nowhere near as...

Didn't get any lines and don't really regret it. Luxury and x-line are only cosmetic changes that, in the case of x-line, look worse than stock. Only thing I would've added is upgraded wheels. The...

To answer your question about lease deals, you're not going to get nearly as good of a deal as you did on your 5. Demand is pretty high for the X5 and, depending on where you are in the country, you...

But to be honest, he/she has a point here. The i3 is not an attractive car by most standards. Why go with such an outlandish design when what the entire electric car industry needs is mass adoption?...

Are there even any reviews out on the 2015 yet? There are very minor changes between 2014 and 2015 in any event.

What is MSRP? Around 63 or so? That's not a bad price at all if so. Of course, if...

So in theory, as long as you do PCD, you should be able to lease from any dealership in the country. Is that correct?
