While I will agree that the 540i is a great car, you are stretching it a bit in the comparisons to the M5. The 540i can sound great, but the M5 can truly sound exotic. The 540i is NOT as quick in a straight line as an M5. The 540i does not handle EXACTLY like an m5, and takes a significant amount of parts to make it… » 11/18/14 1:33pm Tuesday 1:33pm

I ordered a 2015 GT with the performance pack back in May. About a month ago, one with the same options showed up at my dealer so I took it for a 20 mile test drive full of hoonery. It was a good car. The engine makes nice power and is very linear. The front end still lifts a bit much for my tastes and the car felt… » 11/12/14 11:45am 11/12/14 11:45am

The fact that these suckers have depreciated so nicely is exactly why I picked one up about a month ago. 2011 Sedan with competition pack, tech pack, lux pack, blah blah who cares it's the engine that makes all the difference and this engine is a GEM. I added an exhaust less than a week later and I nearly jizz my… » 11/09/14 3:48pm 11/09/14 3:48pm

I'm so confused about how a DCT would work on a motorcycle and I currently have a DCT in my M3.

I took my wife's manual-trans Mazda Cx-5 there this weekend just to see what they'd offer. KBB, Edmunds, NADA; all priced the car at around 13.5k trade-in and 14k+ private party. I figured if carmax offered 13k I'd probably take it. But they offered $12k, saying the main reason is that it's a manual transmission and… » 10/29/14 7:48pm 10/29/14 7:48pm

One of my dogs goes APESHIT crazy if she see's a gun drawn. She immediately runs for the person with the gun and attempts to disarm them. I have no idea why she does this, she's a rescue, but I discovered it one day when I purchased a BB gun and well...she pretty much didn't let me shoot it. Anyway, your situation… » 10/26/14 10:11pm 10/26/14 10:11pm
