F10 or F15

If it were available, I would purchase an F11. In it's absence, I am deciding between and F10 and F15. I recognize that these are very different vehicles, but, I am left with little choice but to...

In evaluating that comparison, consider that there are improvements being made in MY14 for the Volvo, and also that there will be a R-design version which look really exciting. I was initially going...

5 series vs x5

I am curious why a comparably equipped 5 series is so much more expensive than an X5. It is hard to understand why there is such a premium for a sedan over an SUV.

Are any published specs on floor to seat height, and specifically how this number compares for an E90, F30 and F10. Of course this depends on seat adjustment, so, I am either looking for the range,...

x-drive

There is one problem: I live in northern VT. It is thus quite discouraging that with the x-drive, Msport, DHP, etc, it is getting awfully expensive to get a good handling 5. Maybe it's time to take...

x-drive
