If you are still under warranty, BMW's roadside assistance will tow it for you. Otherwise you are pretty much hosed. If that steering column lock indicator is red, the car thinks you can't turn the...

If they want my business a loaner is a non-negotiable, period, end of story. I have never had a problem getting one. You just have to make sure you arrange it when you make your appointment so you...

Let him do it... He will probably take off the wheel which makes it much easier to remove all the buttoned down pieces. I did that replacing a fog light and it helped a ton compared to trying to...

You won't notice a performance difference with either, the gains are negligible on a dyno. The car tunes around it to maintain appropriate a/f mixture based on your tune anyway so if you like the...

I think you are SOL with Suntrup. Why would they deal with you when the chances of you doing any future business with them is non-existent? You should probably plead your case with your home BMW...

I don't like it. The double pull to unlock is a stupid feature, especially for the passenger-side folks who don't drive a BMW - they expect to pull the handle and open the door. I like the US...

I happen to agree with him and would have parked about 4" from his driver's side door... They make parking lines for a reason, park within them or don't park. Find an end spot and get up on the curb....

Never mind a 328, I would trade my 335 for a 2012 Mustang GT Boss 302 in a heartbeat. I am not like the OP who apparently only drives the car for status, which is pretty shallow, and I definitely...

You have a newer build 07. Those of us with older build 07s have oil temp gauge of 120 - 210 - 300. 220-240 is pretty normal for me but BMW has said 300 won't cause damage on the N54(for what that is...

Did the car you drove have the 3.73 gears or the stockers? Brembo brake package and 3.73 gear options really wake up the 2011 Mustang GT. 0-60 in mid 4second range and 1/4 in high 12s pretty easily....
