F10 does not handle better than the E60. Youtube some reviews of the F10. The only reason it is faster is the drivetrain, not the chassis.

BMW I6 engines have their own unique sounds which is great (e46 M3 anyone?) there's good heritage as well. I hear Remus will give you a deeper sound without making it too loud or rice-like.

Never heard of major issues with the N52 engine cars. Eventual water pump failure seems common.

I got a can of Silicone spray and tried getting the parts that made contact. You will be able to tell if you got the right part by moving the plastic around after you spray.

Depreciation is a b****. As far as cars on Cars.com, just because a car is listing for a certain price, it doesn't mean it will sell for that. I bought mine as a CPO over a year and a...

I live in a town of less than 80,000. I've only seen a handful of E39s, 2 E60s, and one F10. There's very little change I'll see cars like mine "tricked out". The day I see an E60 with a giant tuner...
