Just got Dinan stage one done a few weeks ago, and the car is noticeably faster at all rpm's. The traction control light comes up more often and there is a lot of wheel spin even in third gear. Rear...

Sounds about right or maybe $1-2K too high. I recently bought a 14 M6 Vert with 11K miles that had an original MSRP of $143K for $97K. The M6 GC with the listed specs should have an original MSRP of...

Sdg1871's 550i lasted until the end of his lease and he happily turned it in. I know this because we had very similar situations with our 2012 550i's and we both ended up replacing it with a 2015...

Yikes. Probably the only M car to ever go camping like this! It's gotta pretty capable of doing it though.

Heard of DINK before but not THINKERS. It definitely has its advantages.

Dunderhi - Since the motorhome is already on order, have you started looking for car replacements?

It does seem like the way BMWs drive these days are all over the place. The non-M cars tend to be too soft, which was definitely the case with my F10 before I changed out the springs. The E60 I had...

Perhaps a change in ambient temperature and humidity is the difference? Cold and less humid air is denser, meaning more oxygen for the engine. Another theory could be that you have been driving the...

If you are going to keep the 550i and the 997.2 Carrera S is too harsh, then a 981 Cayman S with the standard exhaust and PASM would be a great second car.

If you are looking for a better handling car, while keeping some of the comfort attributes, how about a slightly used Panamera GTS? It's just as fast as a stock 550i, but much better in the handling...
