I have had IAS on 2 successive G12's. I wouldl not order a car that size without it. It is seamless, and helps enormously in tight parking situations. It makes a 7 series IMHO handle like a 5, and...

If the roads in Michigan are anything like the ones in NY, I would not do 20" wheels without wheel and tire insurance - or an understanding that you will be assuming some wheel/tire repair costs...

Never had an issue with the cheap stuff, or with Prestone (I assume they have somebody make it for them). I've been adding alcohol to summer mix for years and never had an issue with that either. ...

89, which is a mid level grade, can knock as indicated. That would bother me even if they say it can cause no damage. It may also be a bit sluggish. I saw that up close during storm Sandy some...

Four wheel steering is essential for 7 series, IMHO. It will make the car seem like a 5 series. It'll never be parkable like a small car - it isn't small - but the smaller turning radius is a HUGE...

Ask for the 330i. The worst that happens is they say no. I've road tested several cars that way, requesting a specific model at the time I book. It makes for a longer test than 10 minutes in the...

Wired charging always going to be faster than wireless. In the LCI G12, the USB port in the armrest is USB C. With a USB C - Lightning cord, it is really fast.
