Anytime I go west, the first six miles are along a coastal road with a 35 MPH speed limit, and only one traffic light (a crosswalk) that's usually green. Even with cold start-up, I can hit 40 MPG by...

SUV's don't like to go fast. Because of the large cross sectional area they punch a big hole in the air, and aerodynamic drag is proportional to the square of velocity. At 75-ish MPH, our X3 only...

BMW model years (MY's) can change all throughout the year. I remember the first F10 5 Series showing up in May of 2010 as a MY 2011. There was a period where X3 30i's and X3 M40i's rolling down...

I had an early E46 M3. Once the summer gas arrived the thing would stumble as stall during cold start-up. The engine was tuned to run on the more volatile winter gas, but not summer gas. They...

Having a square set-up allows tire rotation. Even with xDrive, the back tires are wearing 25% faster (since they get ~63% of the power). The spare used as a place holder makes DIY tire rotation...

Ditto on Frau Putzer's 2018. The 19" non-RFT's were free with the $3300 Premium Package, or $600 without. Oddly, we couldn't get the non-RFT's with the M Sport Package's 19" all-season tires. ...

Yeah, pretty much. For a while, she stuck to residential real estate, sort of "Normal Rockwell capitalism." But, that was a big PIA.

Unlike the X3 30i, the only way to get non-run-flats is to get the performance (summer) tires on 21' rims. The $150 spare tire is a mandatory option on 30i's with non-run-flats. But, you have to...
