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.

It's happened to me a few times in the 6 months I had my car.Few and far between. Accessing with key fob seems to self correct it.

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.

I have 704 with Integral Active Steering. IAS makes all the difference in the world. Wouldn't order a BMW without it. Don't have DHP but 704 + IAS is near perfect IMO....

My neighbors (and I) didn't appreciate a car alarm resetting and re-sounding for the better part of an hour, around midnight. It's only an assumption that I accidentally hit the panic button. I'm not...

Car Alarm alert?

Last night my car alarm went off around 11 pm in my building's garage. I thought it was a random alarm from the street. Didn't occur to me it was my car until I walked my dog around midnight. My...

Alexey Kezha is surely the biggest hack in modern car design and BMW's CEO should be sacked for hiring this idiot. The new 3 and 7 Series are Edsel ugly. I couldn't appreciate my 540i more but I fear...

I'd bet on it. Unless BMW releases iDrive 8 to correct the reverse tachometer on iD 7 and round out the cluster layout.
