Same here. On my F30, I've never had the traction control turn on in dry conditions. And while I like to corner aggressively, I don't drive hard enough to kick out the rear end. IMO if you do on a...

You are making the fatal mistake of equating an enthusiast BMW with the car a huge majority of it's market wants. BMW obviously knows what it's doing as it sells well over 300K cars in the US, 40%...

The MSport suspension is the 704 as in the Sport Line. Both are dropped 10mm on RWD cars. They are identical.

Aside from the suspension control, how did you feel about the steering feel? I have become used to the Sport setting in the F30 but still pine for the feel of the E90 HPS. Perhaps it's just nostalgia.

I think the solid feel has to do with how the doors close and a general feeling of being in a vault. This is what I've read of course as I don't have personal experience. I will say that I don't get...

I agree. My 328i Sport Line F30 was just over $43K and is certainly not well equipped, lacking nav, HK, any cameras, sunroof, Xenon's etc. It does however have what I consider the vital option, the...

No doubt cars in general are getting more expensive. Not just BMW. Price a C400 with a few packages to get a decently equipped car with a sport package. $50K. A well optioned Accord is well over...

The dealer doesn't know what they are talking about or doesn't care. Of course the 5C is supported. It's the same phone as the 5 but in a cheaper case. I have one and have no issues with my car. Tell...

The issue is the cost of these policies has gone through the roof. In late 2007 when I leased a 2008 3 series, I bought the insurance for $500.00. I declined in 2010 on my 2011 E90 as it was...

The N20 engine pulls hard to about 6500 rpm. It makes max torque from 1750 rpm and barely drops off at redline while making peak hp at about 5300 rpm.

It's hard to take you seriously when you say DHP improves steering feel. It doesn't. It's the same system with a variable rack. The only practical difference is effort in low speed scenarios.

You can't add things via coding that aren't in the controller. If revs are not part of the system, possibly in another market, there is no way to enable that.
