400 miles is not insignificant.

It could have been driven by the dealer's elderly mother. OR it could have been a press car, driven by a bunch of azzhats who beat on it for their YouTube channels...

He left out the most important reason: Most folks don't custom order a car, and just buy whatever is on the lot. And when GSM's are ordering cars for inventory, they rarely check the boxes for DHP,...

Don't be offended, but is there any chance that you left the vehicle running? My 2017 was so quiet, I did that a couple times. IMHO, anyone who is going to the trouble of spoofing your key is more...

My understanding is that X3M Comp and X4M Comp are unbearably stiff, but that the "regular" X3M and X4M are less so. I believe there is at least one aftermarket suspension manufacturer who is...

Sounds a bit like getting married to a gal who has three openings, and she'll only let you use one. If you are lucky. A whole different type of subscription service?

The 2020 has been around for a year, production has ended and BMW is now building the 2021's. I think you meant 2018 vs. 2021.
