Acceleration Delay Work Around.

I notice on my 528i a lag between the accelerator being depressed and car starting to move. My dealer says such is life and is normal. I say this is poor engineering. I don't understand why cars made...

I would guess in bumper to bumper traffic 10 or less MPG would be expected. The F10 is very heavy, so getting it going takes some energy. Once it is rolling it seems to do very well, I am still...

Just look it up on used car websites what they sell for. BMW looses 10 percent per year average. Year 2000 5 series now sell for 3-6K. 3 years olds now sell for 25-35K. 7 year olds are at the end of...

The run flats on the F10 standard 528i are a vast improvement over the 2008 328i tires.
Much smoother ride quality at speeds under about 45, and much quieter. The 328i ride smoothed out with...
