If you've ruled out the vent settings, it's absolutely essential that you have the cooling system checked out ASAP. We had an E46 3 series that was periodically putting out only cold air (this was a...

You might shop around online; I'll bet you can find that light assembly cheaper and I bet it's not that hard to replace. My local dealer charges ABOVE list price on all parts.

Just remember you don't get something for nothing. Rolling fenders takes away the 90 degree angle iron effect along the inner edge of the fender. This means it's no where near as strong if someone...

Thanks, BMW. Sadly, for most of us, our salaries have NOT been inflated this year.

Where are you getting the information that O2 "escapes" 3-4 x faster than Nitrogen? I'd really, really like to see that study.

I haven't had a chance to see the new ML yet, as my dealer hasn't gotten theirs yet. I may also be completely disappointed in it once I see it.

I hope you're right; I'll gladly take the full deduction! I'm not an accountant either, but it seems to me that you get $25K deduction in the first year for a vehicle > 6001 lbs., or a 100%...

I'd find a 2011 if you can. The base price on the gas X5 increased just $900, but the base price on the X5d went from $51,300 to $56,300, AND the Eco credit was decreased by $1000, so the price...

I like MSRP better. First off, many people confuse the two, talking about how much they got off invoice, when in fact they mean MSRP. Secondly, MSRP is a harder number. I've known dealers to claim...

Also the diesel is better for towing.

I don't need a vehicle until fall so I'm waiting to see if BMW re-implements the Eco credit on diesels.

Saw a new cab last night. It looks OK!

I know there were a few fans of the old, outgoing 6, but it will always be on my all time ugly BMW list.

Last night I checked out a '12 cab in black. I'd seen pictures, but it's better to check...

Now if we can just send all the outgoing 6's to the crusher, the world will be in harmony again.

The new one is a completely detailed design unlike it's predecessor. Still obese, though.
