I like and use the ACC a lot. But I don't use the lane assistant except to test it as a toy. In my opinion, and experience, it works fine on gentle curves on highways but anything more, or an exit...

Do you mean five additional years for a total of nine years? Is it the BMW extended warranty plan? What level? Is there a copay? If so, what is it? Or is it a plan from your dealership? If it...

Or you could go for the X4 which will look more like a car and drive a tad more like one.

If you are looking used, you might look for a 5/6 series gran coupe style which gives you a hatch instead of a trunk. That provides for more usable space. A 7 series would, of course, also give you...

My problem is related to reliabilkity. If Alfa Romeo had a good loaner program, where one would get an alfa when the Giulia is in the shop, I would definitely consider it. But there are too many...

You are a kind and generous person. The first time they changed terms on me, I walk out the door and don't come back. Life is too short and there are many BMW dealerships (at least in my metro...

+1. Mine doesn't lock when I walk away because I haven't set it that way but it isn't a lot of effort to touch the door handle and then walk away.
