You can only deduct lease payments based on the business portion use of your vehicle. If you use your X5 100% for business use then you can deduct 100% of the lease payments. However, if you only use...

Do you know that the engine in your car was "recalled" by BMW because of numerous problems? There are more posts in the X5 and 7 series forums, because it uses the same V8 engine as in your car....

To be honest, you should wait until the LAST year of production to get the most reliable car. The problem is by that time the model is old and nobody wants it. People want the new one coming out....

I hate that BMW did that. I had Active Steering on my 2010 5 series and loved it, but I also want DHP (if I decide to get the new 5 series). I'm guessing they did not have enough room underneath the...

It doesn't make sense, but the new 5 series actually has more trunk space than the 7 series. They both look too small to me. Too narrow. Not enough usable space.

The 7 looks stunning on the road

Yesterday I saw the new 750i on the highway. It's probably only the third one I've seen on the road. Anyway, the car was a dark color and had an M-sport package with possibly 20" wheels.

To be honest, the more I look at the pictures the more I like the car. I love the fact that for the first time in the USA they are offering NON-RUNFLATS with a spare as an option.

I agree with you. It's a 'safe evolution' design. The F10 was the best selling 5-series generation ever, so I imagine they decided they didn't want to stray too far away from the old design and risk...

YouTube: BMW 760i V12 commercial

Pretty good commercial of the new V12 760i.
(It's better if you have the volume on).

$5,000 Option Credit until Sept. 30

I guess we should be thankful BMW offers an OFF option for ASS. The newer Chevy's don't have an OFF option. I recently had a 2016 Chevy Malibu as a rental and there was no way to turn it off.
