Great advice, as usual, AP. Don't ask how may miles I got on my 2019 540. :dunno:

I hear a slight noise when turning sometimes. Not certain but I ascribe it to the gyro in the seatbelt mechanism or perhaps the mirror. It's sporadic and doesn't bother me.

I have IAS. Makes a world of difference. I endorse it. Wouldn't order a G30 without it.

USB connection triggering false alarms

I like iDrive 6 digital cluster. Haven't use iD 7. Re: getting too creative and screwing it up, IMO BMW's CEO and chief designer should be sumarily fired for those hideous Bucky Beaver grilles.

Don't know about you peeps, but the Napa Multi Contour Seats, sans ventilation or massage, are just about perfect IMO. One reason I leased this car!

Always use Auto S/S in L.A. traffic. Seamlessly smooth with Auto Hold engaged and saves a few MPG. To switch Auto S/S off, use the 2 finger method while pressing the ignition button.

I'm in the minority but use ASS regularly in L.A. Nothing to dislike. In combination with the Auto Park feature, the start/stop transition is seamless and it buys me a couple of mile$ a gallon. Never...

Loved my 2013 Estoril Blue F30 M Sport! Every other car manufacturer knocked it off, wholesale. There was an Audi F30, MBZ F30, Lexus F30, right through a Honda and Toyota F30. It wasn't perfect and...

Been following Mission E awhile and interested in kicking the wheels and driving it. Also Audi's version. All lux marques will intro EVs in the near future. Meanwhile, love that inline 6 on my G30.

BMW seems to be suffering from an identity crisis, et al "grille envy", steroidal sheet metal, and boring color choices. FWIW, I <3 my 540i and I love the autonomous tech, though it requires...

I don't put much stock in gearhead reviews but C&D ripped the G20 a new one.

I want the same vibrant colors that come stock +$550 on a 340M, X2 M Sport, etc -- plus canary yellow! BMW charges an old fogey tax on cool colors on upscale models.

My dog wanted me to buy an SUV. We had a big argument about it but I told him "no, we're getting a sedan".
