TV commercial bashing other cars, especially BMW

When I see a commercial for BMW, it always is in good taste. BMW tells you how good their automobiles are and in no way compares them to the competition. Mercedes Benz seems to take a similar...

I use a similar container for mine and because I hardly ever use the front cupholders, I keep it inside one of them. I cover them with the storage tray to keep it hidden. I sometimes have to...

Why doesn't the manufacturer or the dealer tell us this stuff?

If a car has been reprogrammed and the result has a noticeable effect on its performance, I think the manufacturer or the service department should provide the owner with information as to what was...

There are so many Bimmers on the road here in L.A. that no one pays any attention to their colors. If you live in this area and want a BMW that looks aggressive and will turn heads, I strongly...

You're fortunate. My trunk virtually flies open all the way and if someone is too close, it could cause injury. I would much prefer that it opens only part way and that I raise it the rest of the way...

I tried to figure out a name for this monstrosity. At first I thought of "opposing trapezoids" but that was much too kind. Then I hit on the one that describes it best--the "obese hourglass" grille.

It all started with the 2009 Acura TL and its hideous looking "beak-like" front grille. I thought that was just about the ugliest looking grille I ever saw--until Lexus came up with this one. If...

Rear parking sensor produces steady sound with nothing behind the car

The black and silver colors are the only possible reasons for the much higher price. Every model listed on the BMW page, regardless of color, is 1:18 scale.

A 99.95% success rate is quite good, but not when it involves your car stalling unexpectedly. Anything less then 100% is totally unacceptable.

Is it just me?

I find the use of the automatic shift lever on the F30 to be completely counterintuitive. It makes sense that to go into drive, you push the lever forward and to go into reverse, you pull it...

My 2012 328i key fob needs a CR2450 battery which is far more expensive--about $2.50. :) Previous BMW models used the CR2032.
