528i EPA

The 528i achieves 32 MPG highway. Not a rocketship like the 550, but a good drive for the (gas) money nonetheless!

X3 Ride No Worse than RFT's

While the X3 ride is stiff, even in post-2007 models, it is much better than almost any vehicle with RFT's.

Make sure you see the 550 sport wheels before deciding to replace with the 535 version. I did, at the NYIAS and can say the photos do not give them justice. However, if you're spending $70K on a new...

NY Auto Show

The 550i featured at the NY Auto Show had the oyster/black interior with Graphite Black exterior. Getting rid of the shoe scuffs in the footwell and on the door will be a welcome change.

Can the front bumper be repaired if the plastic is dented or does it need to be replaced? Is it one piece or two: upper (grill-area) and lower (spoiler)?
