When I ordered my vehicle CB's weren't covered and wasn't sure if that changed. In theory CB should outlast the maintenance plan but they are more vulnerable to damage from stones and other debris,...

Amazing engine and I'm a big fan of the E60. Some of the V10's in '06 had issues with the high pressure oil pump failing and you will probably have to deal with the SMG pump eventually. If you have...

Rhipsher, did you just buy the 530 or M5 ? Current market value on that E60 is $10-12K.

Lease residuals on the F10 are 60-62% after 3 years so $74K for a '13 sounds about right considering...

I have driven every model of the 5 (E24/E28/E34/E39/E60/F10). Loved the E28 but BMW ruined the E34 with a poor chassis, engine and weight. The E39 was amazing but that's when they hit the law of...
