So true, a good golf grip & swing seems very unnatural at first. Take a couple of 1 hour lessons before you bake in some bad habit you'll be trying to shake for years.

You need to look down-range only to line up your shot - striking the golf ball requires you to keep your head level parallel to the ground without taking your eye(s) off the ball until after you make...

I'm sure they don't for dealer stock, but I would hope they order you whatever you want.

I've traded in 3 MT BMW's, 2 were bought by the dealer staff & never made it to the cpo pool.

Keep the $8k, put it in a bank, and use it to pay for repairs as they come up in the future.

I don't know what sort of peace of mind this buys anyone, paying grossly inflated pre-paid maintenance...

I think Melbourne red has the orange covered. It should be called Melbourne orange.

You have to get the M//Engine Sound Sport Management option, which gives you a total of 768 different engine sound profiles via your idrive knob. One of which, of course, is "off". Bad news is that...

How do you like the 4cyl vs. the 6 in your E46? I just love the perfect balance of the inline 6; not sure I'll like the 4 as well though it clearly has much more power.

It's stunning, IMO, how much ALPA's power and presence has diminished over the past 20 years. I'd bet their union dues income is 20% of what it was 20 years ago.

Oh, so much to say.

First of all, "flight school" through getting your ATP will be way more than $20k. That may get you a multi-engine private pilot rating. Unless you get military training, I...

Proper winter tires & driver skill are much more important than how many/which wheels drive the car.

there's a reason slushbox's get better mileage. Mash the gas pedal & nothing happens thanks to computers saying "no".

No thanks, I'll stick with manuals until my left leg can't do the job anymore.

Let this be a lesson to everyone; if a modern BMW is not properly connected to the Mothership for even the simplest of maintenance tasks, it will go limp like an old man out of little blue pills.
