I'll probably miss the fog lights (aftermarket?), but I'll use the suspension and the steering wheel every time I drive.

Just to give the other point of view: I find the 704 sport suspension to be excellent for all purposes, so the adjustable shocks are not of interest to me. I also prefer all-season tires as a more...

German Buick fits the bill perfectly. I've had 3 5-series cars: E34, E39 and F10. Starting with the E39 . . . . Buick! But a nice Buick.

DIY spark plug change on a BMW V8? Sounds like masochism to me. Just get a new car.

Note that if you are driving a leased car, you're going to have to turn it in with run-flats or pay for a set if you don't. I found it useful in this situation to switch to non-RFT tires early,...

There are many places where it is illegal to wash your car at home. Wherever you wash your own car, you pollute the groundwater and waste fresh water.

OK, time for a deep breath. When the 2016 order guide first came out, I fell into this trap. Looking at the order guide, I could see 100% for the manual transmission on the 228i, and I thought the...
