I have a 2020 with the DAPP. I'd say it works very well, but I do get the lane-wander issue as the vehicle seems to bounce back and forth between the lines. Seems worse on roads with wider lanes as...

I had a 2017 X5 50i with DHP. A few weeks ago I replaced that vehicle with a 2020 X5 M50i with DHP. The only notable difference between the two vehicles is the wheels/tires. The F15 had the 20"...

I recently got a new 2020 X5 and had those exact issues with the new features of comfort access. Since it's fully configureable, I ended up turning it off. For others that always lock their car...

Your post brings up a few questions regarding pre-inspections:

When should you do them? How soon (or late)? Seems like the later the better so there's less chance to claim that something changed...

Cold Start Interlock sounds like a heating feature that wouldn't affect cooling function. No need to wait for heater core warmup to cool vehicle.

With my 2017 X5 5.0 (which should be very close to the 2020 X5 M50i in mpg terms), I can get 400 miles out of a tank with pure highway miles and keeping it under 80 mph (so mpg of low-20s). But it's...

Texas has been horrible for BMW deals relative to Calif., and that's why two of my last three deals were through GregP. However, sales tax rules favor the local dealers, so I was able to make a TX...

Since the X7 is built in South Carolina, production/delivery time should be fairly quick vs. buying a German-build model - like a few weeks vs. few months.

My last three BMW leases have all been vehicles with MSRP of $90-105K, and monthly payments for each were about 1% of MSRP (or much less, in the case of my ED deal). The current lease is up at the...

Yes, but it's usually more limited (I think currently $500 on most models). So you'll have to run the various options to see what's better.....maybe CCA gives a higher rebate on some models.
