For a winter tire you want the narrowest possible tire with the thickest side wall (for those fun potholes). An 18" wheel/tire combo is therefore the best choice.

The B&O system happened to be installed in the car my dealer was begging me to take - trust me, for a 2014, I am glad I got it (not knocking the 2014 stock stereo). Plus, it is so damn cool looking...

I think the 19s with adaptive drive is the perfect setup. The 20s look great, but you either need to lose the RFTs and put all seasons on or swap out your wheels. Plus the ride with the RFTs on the...

Do not waste your money at this time. You can add it any time before the warranty/maint is up. Decide then if you want to do it, the cost will be similar if not less.

Stunning color. I have to ask though, does your hood have a fit problem or is it the angle of the picture? Looks like the gap in front grows very wide towards the left. Also the gaps with the...

Interestingly enough, I just traded (for a week) with my friend. He has a 2014 550xi and I have a 2014 650xi GC. His car has 15K on the clock, mine 3.5K.

I'm torn.

I test drove a 2013 650 with 19s and adaptive drive and the ride was PERFECT. I ended up getting a 2014 without adaptive drive and 20s (a deal I could not refuse). As noted, the ride is harsh. It...

Any chance you followed it?

No, the extra month is because they need to get it into the production cycle (since it has to be painted rather than pulled from the rack). So you already have that in your 7 weeks. My dealer told...
