If you have not driven the X2 yet, you should. It's not a practical car, but it handles and drives better than the current X1, and I prefer feel of the wider stance of the X2 over the e84. It also...

Just bought a set of Driveguards for my '15 x1 with 17 inch wheels. Overall, its a better ride. Less of the bad road feel, a bit less of the good road feel too, but I think it's a good trade off. ...

Wanted to support what Nameless man said. I get in as soon as possible for each oil change, which lowers the ratio of miles to changes and can even get you an extra change (at least under the old 4...

I assume that's not a CPO at that price? I'd be worried about the reliability of a x35i going that cheap. Need to check out the transfer case for sure.

Agreed- The 1st SL1 and SL2 were great, innovative cars (and the 2nd gen was still pretty good), but their product pipeline ultimately was killed by the other brands within GM. They spend all their...

If it helps anyone, I just got an e-mail with a $500 CPO credit and I'm in the St. Louis area (whatever market that is). I don't think I've ever been offered a CPO credit before. I'm guessing that...

So, correct me if I'm wrong, but if you lease a car with CarPlay as an option, you never end up paying the full $300, correct? Just like the rest of the car, you pay for the portion you use based on...

$80 a year for CarPlay after the 1st year?

I've heard reports that BMW is moving to a subscription model for CarPlay- no cost up front, free first year, and then $80 a year in perpetuity. Personally, I see this as a very customer unfriendly...

GT CX-5 is very nice, but not all that fast. It's good in sport mode, but you'd be thrashing the engine all the time. Lower trims have worse interiors that I do not enjoy as much. CX-3 is tiny-...

I was able to get an oil change under warranty with 3200 left today, but I was also in for another service. I'm sure they would like to avoid a second loaner in only about a two months for me.

The v60 used (if you can find them) are crazy cheap. That's likely to be my next CPO if BMW does not change their CPO warranty back to two years. I'd also skip AWD on the Sportwagen due to it being...

Personally? I might look at a 3 series GT or a 4 series GC. Used, you can get a pretty good deal on the 3GT as they did not sell well. Otherwise? I'd look at a Volvo v60, GTI, Golf R, or maybe a VW...

I actually like the tablet look, personally, because it enables the designer to lower the perceived height of the dashboard. This makes the cockpit feel more open, at least to me. I like my x1,...
