Larger?
Feels like my G31 is smaller than my F11 that was smaller than my E61...
Measurements may paint another picture but then I don't know where it has grown. Hood?

Hi AP,
This was news to me. What kind of speed limiter are you referring to?

Looking at the engine lineup....no more v8 also for the M5. The XM will have the S58.....why BMW should develop a new engine only for the M5 when even the next gen X5/6M are likely to adopt the S58?

I'm sad, really sad.

Another reason why Performance cars made between 1990 to 2015 will continue to skyrocket in price.

EV cars will be easily restricted by software to comply by government regulations. I don’t think there will be hacking of DME to alter “boost levels”

If they implement technology to limit vehicles to the posted speed limit it will add a lot of time to trips in the USA, where we tend to think of the signs on Interstates as suggestions.

Anything less than 10mph over the sign and you're basically a rock in the middle of a river of traffic flowing around you.

I believe that train, er... 5er, has already left the station with the G30 which I have read is built on a modified 7 series modular chassis.

My 530e DD drives like a mid-size luxury vehicle and I am very happy with that.

But I can't help blushing every time I look at the ///M badges on the front fenders.
