This isn't the true LCI. An LCI would have some styling updates. It's just that these days across all manufacturers, you pretty much need to get new features out to cars as soon as they are ready. ...

I'm kinda surprised that Live Cockpit is now standard before the LCI, but it makes some sense. With the G20 including it, hard to have the upper model with an inferior display.

My two trips made sure that I visited the Nurburgring, so the route headed northwest from Munich. Finding smaller towns along the way to stay. Although, on the last trip, made sure to visit...

BMW now sells a revised dash cam, Advanced Car Eye 2.0. Looks better than the last version.

I recently was involved in a finder bender myself, luckily not my fault. My estimate for damage is about the same.

The case on my S9+ isn't one of those "thin" cases, and it doesn't fit. Note that I don't have wireless charging. It's pretty awkward to get the phone in and out of there anyway.

I'm seriously considering a new X5 when my lease is up. It's not that the G30 isn't a great car, it is. But after seeing and driving the new X5, it has me intrigued. The new tech with the much...

Which, admittedly, is just following trends in the industry. Whether we like it or not, the SUV is king, at least in the US. I saw a healthy amount of them in Germany too. Imagine being a loyal...

I think it will look good with Bluestone. I had an F10 with Space Gray with mocha and it looked great. Bluestone is pretty similar. I've got Mediterranean Blue with mocha now.

The LCI is timed to coincide with a three year lease, more or less. Gotta give those leasers something to be excited for. Myself included.

I'm hoping that they implement the new instrument...

I'd say the general pros and cons of an Alfa can be summed up as such.

Pros: It's an Italian car
Cons: It's an Italian car

I'm sure it drives awesome. My own take is that unless I was...

BMW WILL offer you any color in their catalog, but at a heft price. It runs about $5,000 for a custom color option not available in the standard palette. I've spoken to the person in charge of...

This "phenomena" has been a BMW thing for who knows how long now. If I had to guess, BMW know their customers, and know that they have heavy feet. Gives everyone a little bit of a margin over the...

Given that the new 3 has the new instrument cluster, I have to think for the LCI that they will replace it with that. I certainly hope it will from what I've seen.

I had that same consideration last year, 540 vs S5 Sportback. I really liked the Sportback. Really nice exhaust note, handled very well, and had a good feature set. But inside you recognize the...

I noticed that as well. It's like they programmed the system to reach the temperature but forgot about solar gain.

While that sounds reasonable enough, MB and Audi both provide Android Auto. Not to mention Aston Martin and Lamborghini.

Having said that, I've used Android Auto in some other cars, and found it...

That's very true. And it appears that it had to be you who reported it. So if you see a pothole every day, report it, and I guess they don't fix it within a few days, you can claim it. I'd love to...

I'll pile on and say that it is 100% worth it. Third BMW with HUD and would never get a car without it.

I've always said that if BMW attempted to sell a car without the kidney grilles or Hofmeister kink, you'd see rioting in Munich.
