What is supposed to happen? I insert the screwdriver and try to rotate but nothing happens. I'm guessing that plastic piece will separate so the elbow will come off but nothing.

Stop iDrive from kicking phone out of Bluetooth Streaming

That's exactly why this is so important. I want to use Spotify as well, as do hundreds of people if you check their "ideas" page, but their app doesn't have the same integration as pandora, for...

Heavy Steering X5 2013

Also, I forgot to say this, but don't just "bump tire pressure up to 40" like some people have said here. Look at whatever your recommended tire pressure is on your driver's side column, then go over...

Heavy Steering X5 2013

The cars you are driving that have lighter steering most likely have Adaptive Drive and Active Steering. Check for a "Sport" button next to the transmission gear selector. That shows you that...

34 MPG on 2nd tank

And I agree with you on the breaks. It's my only BIG complaint about the 28. What the hell was BMW thinking with these brakes? They are ridiculous. I've never had a BMW that brakes so poorly and...

Don't even think about it. I used to have an E90 with the same engine and transmission as the 35 and I'm here to tell you that the fuel economy is just terrible on that thing. I mean dismal. The six...

Burger Motorsports N26 tune

Stage 2 is taking too long. I don't get it. You'd think with all the F30s, F25, F10, E84s out there, they'd come out swinging to get this product out. But no.

34 MPG on 2nd tank

That's what I'm saying man. The numbers are very low. In the it's forget it. It's terrible. Eco Pro is not worth it in my opinion, I've given up on AS/S due to how rough it is and the low savings j...

Is it just me or does it annoy the crap out of you guys as well when people say 3.5i or 3.5d? The engine is a 3.0L inline 6 ... PERIOD. And the models are 35i or 35d.
