Some cars have residuals that make them just plain scary to own. I.e., the outgoing F01 750 - that thing tanked hard in resale once BMW started flooding the market with heavily incentivized 2 year...

I've always tried to treat my leases like I've owned them. Before my 2011 7 series I couldn't afford a new 7 series, so bought my 07 750 CPO in 2010. Once I got my 2011 I treated it as though a...

I've seen both on some high performance cars. You just do less density of each.

I still think Chrysler have the absolute ****tiest interiors of all the american cars, at least those that I've had as rentals. GM used to be at the bottom but they seem to have improved somewhat. ...

I've owned mostly Fords and GMs up until I could afford BMWs. While there's hard plastic in the Ford interiors rather than soft touch vinyl, I still think they've always looked very modern compared...

I'd need to know the years of your 7 and his 5 to tell which wheel you have, as they change over time. Up until 2013, the 7 series standard wheel was more thin and not made of the same nappa leather...

The tech does sound cool, just wish it were better looking - or at least somewhat aggressive looking, just anything less boring. Maybe they'll surprise us. If not, I guess you could always put 23s...

I do 20 all around. Had 35 on a previous BMW and didnt like it. Cops in LA dont seem to care as much as they used to. Had it on my last 4 cars and never a ticket.

Looked around for the same thing and couldn't find a match. I was told the dead pedal is attached by adhesive, so it shouldn't be a big deal to replace if you want it to match.

Ah ok for some reason I thought you were doing CF. Full leather was a good choice - takes the interior to a whole new level.

Thanks. Lots of depth when it's clean, but once it gets dusty it's hard to tell it apart from sapphire black. Complete accident with the shadows but I see what you're saying!
