That is the traditional school of thought, my firsthand experience along with several other forum members found that pushing these BMW turbo V8s harder reduced the oil consumption. Some even ďfixedĒ...

Have changed your driving habits? Many have found the harder you drive these BMW V8s, the less oil they burn. Iíve had four of them thus far and I think my earliest add was around 9kmi (Ď15 M6).

I really doubt it will be a true sports car in the 911-sense. I think it is meant to be more of an S Class competitor, but maybe a sportier option. The pricing doesnít seem bad when compared to the...

Technically, most N63s didn't have issues, but a significant number (~37%) of 550's needed at least one quart between oil changes which were up to 18-19kmi during those years. BMW's dropping the oil...

Sorry for the misunderstanding, but I no longer have the N63 which was in my 2011 550. I traded it in when it had about 45kmi. Most of the N63 owners here at he Fest tended to have oil burning...

Yes, that does sound like a good deal, but since I didnít have any issues with my N63 I donít see why BMW owes me anything.

Iíve had cars with the N63, N63Tu, S63, and S63Tu. The S63Tu was the only one that regularly required a quart of oil prior to itís 10kmi oil change. My N63 went well beyond 10kmi without needing...

Thanks for the responses. When we ordered the X3 the sales manager thought it was strange we didnít want the DAP. I guess BMW though so too. Iím really surprised that mix-ups like this still...

Package included, but not ordered

Mrs. D has replaced her Ď15 BMW 328dxt with a Ď19 X3 3.0 xDrive. She picked up her new Bimmer on 31 Aug, so it was a pretty early production Ď19. So far we have seen that it has Blind Spot...

My last Benz's were an '07 GL450 and an '07 SL550, but with six Bimmers in between I think a change might be overdue. ;)

From what I have been reading, I believe this is the 8 Series. Since we haven't seen any other prototypes yet, I suspect the 6 Series coupe will gap and we'll only have the 6 Series GT on 2019.

I toyed with an E43 the other day and I couldn't get over how bad the exhaust note sounded under full throttle. Sure it was loud and popped during shifts, but was very tinny. Based upon the AMG GTS...

If I didn't put the stock tires and wheels in storage when new, then I usually put on new tires with about 12kmi before the end of my lease.

Wow, thanks for the link. In the UK, where Fiat sells their entire line-up of cars, they dominate the Germans (Audi, BMW, and MB) in terms of quality. Since the 500 is so terrible, the other Fiats...

Interesting comment from Bob Lutz regarding BMW

I always buy the most expensive car that I can afford, but the most expensive car that I can afford is the one that I will enjoy driving, yet is still cheap enough to keep the Mrs. happy. :whip:
