It depends, but 1x per month, perhaps 2x month in winter sounds good. It won't take as much time with regular use.

I had this same commute when the thread started. My battery was low when I took...

Alex, these photos are much better to see the tint character. CB has to be the trickiest paint to pair a tint with. It seems like traditional tints (gray or brown) could look strange on it in bright...

+1

The 2011 528 made no sense (aside from $). 2012 is different.
Had a 535 for 4 days after having 550 for 6 months. Different animals.
535 took much more pedal, made way more noise, felt laggy,...

Thanks for answering.



Nice! I'd love to have RGRs year-round. Have you gone to the winter set yet? I would be interested to know how you like that combo.

Love BMWs, Love Audis... it is okay to appreciate both.

Audi is not the relative bargain (to a BMW) they were a few years back. What makes Audi seem cheaper is that dealers have to be a little...

Hi Guys, can anyone tell me why it is good to downsize for winter? Is it to allow more free space in the wheel well to eject snow from the treads?

I managed to get a set of 245/40-19 Alpin PA3. I...

Makes sense. It's hard to go wrong with either tire. I think people look at the snow/ice reviews favoring DWS, but don't acknowledge that those are going to come into play on ~20 days of the year. I...

push the pedal down more. you will like what happens there. Play with the manual shift mode to keep those RPMs up there. You might not know what your car sounds like.:)

Exactly. This is probably even reaching into Volvo land.
535 over S4 is a good call. That S4 is an expensive lease. You could get into a 7 for that payment.

I've never noticed this. When you guys say hard to close, do you mean hard to push the door or you push it and it doesn't latch all the way?
