I can't believe C&D rated the A6 higher in Exterior Styling. I thought about looking at the A6 before settling on my 535 because the A6's chassis and drivetrain is very good, but I just couldn't get...

535xi Sport+ vs. DS drivetrain settings?

After moving from my 335 6MT to a 535 with the 8AT, I'm still getting used to having the car do all the drivetrain thinking for me. I wish I could have gotten a 6MT in the 535xi - "manual" shifting...

All the toll roads in TX are camera tolls and those and any other traffic enforcement cameras will want the best shot at seeing you coming and going. It's a sea change that's not going back.

That is exactly how I set mine up as soon as I realized I could detach the two settings. I may not always need aggressive shifting, but I always want a tight suspension. Heck, after being in an E90...

By way of full disclosure, as much as I love my 335, I will be looking at an F10 next due to needing more interior space. Although it's no E90 in handling and road feel, it's an excellent athletic...

+1. Comparing a non-M5 F10 to a G37, S5, or any other 3-series competitor, much less a Carrera?:confused: The 550 is designed to be a straightline beast with lots of comfort.
