Initial Impressions: My wife and I arrived in Spartanburg/Greenville Airport via Delta Airways that evening. Called the Marriott for pickup and 15 mins later we were picked up in a Green 2008 BMW X5 4.8i that whisked us to checkin. Very sweet ride! I wanted to drive the X5 and was impressed by the build and quality of the X5. I had considered trading up my 2003 X5 4.4i for one when they 1st debuted but held off. Its V8 sounds sweet better than my 4.4i (but you are on … CONTINUED

This latest round of spyphotos on M3Post seem to confirm that the E90 M3 Sedan will get the tail-light facelift that the standard E90 Sedan is recieving. This is sure to be controversial as this is the first year the M3 has been out there and is already seeing a change in body design. I would be upset too.

First post community-manager:
We wanted to allow you getting an idea of the experience the new M-DCT with Drivelogic provides as early as possible, hence the mods of the MPW in advance had the opportunity of a co-drive on the test track.
Let me add a comment to the mentioned "torque oversteer".
Simplified this means: When performing an upshift, the engines still revving too high for the next ratio.
In case of a quite fast … CONTINUED
