What conventional standards? Standards for a car built in 1992? BMW doesn't seem much different than what other manufacturers recommend for a modern vehicle, save the 15k oil change intervals. I'm...

I paid about $600 at the dealership for an AGM battery a few months ago. Switching to AGM required two additional hours for programming beyond the registration piece. Or at least that is what they...

I recently drove an LCI F30 328xi with 17s and the steering was as light as my old first-gen Mazda 3. I could turn the wheel with my pinky finger. Sport mode didn't seem to feel any different. It was...

It can call emergency response after a crash automatically. That can help me survive if I can't make that call on my own; in my view that's a safety feature. It also has auto insurance benefits as...

6/2011 South African build, I had two new coils earlier this year after CELs under heavy acceleration... I am kind of annoyed that all of them weren't replaced.

Let's face it, the automatic transmission of today is a really good machine. They have more forward gears which means better acceleration and fuel economy, plus they can shift faster than humans can.

Not a bad idea, but on many back roads around New England this means you would probably be driving 35mph or less most of the time.

More recent model years have solved the problem by making the DRL the turn signal itself. It turns yellow and starts blinking.

It seems to me when you have 2.0T fourbangers pumping out 240-270hp today, it's making the "300hp" turbo I6 look a bit more wheezy than it did in 2007.
