Overall height of RWD models is 57.3 inches. For AWD models that increases to 57.9 inches. So there should be an additional 0.6 inches of wheel gap when equipped with the same wheels and tires.

Tapping into mirror power?

I'm interesting in tapping into the power for the dimming mirror to run a dashcam. I've heard of people doing this successfully just by poking a couple of small wires into the back of the connector....

MSRP should be the same at any dealer, but that doesn't really matter, because dealers can and often do sell for less than that. It's worth getting a quote from several different dealers. That gives...

Poor sound quality is the reason I didn't subscribe to Sirius once the free trial ended. Every station sounded like an overly-compressed MP3, though some were worse than others. The lady who phoned...

I always read that 15% loss in the drivetrain is about normal for any car (though tends to be higher as a percentage for less powerful cars, and lower for more powerful cars). So that seems to be not...

Me too, in fact even the GS F-Sport is too aggressive for my taste. However, I can totally understand why other people might like the F-Sport version better. This must be the kind of thing that gives...

I had the same impression after test driving the GS and the 5-Series... the 4GS is a better handling, more fun to drive car.

I tend to keep my cars a really long time, so after the 4GS I'll probably end up with something that has AWD with an electric motor per wheel. It'll be powered by fusion, or celery, or something.

I find it easier and less touchy than all previous cars, however, because the pivot point is different (bottom of the pedal) it does take some getting used to, and perhaps a slightly different foot...

Probably not relevant, but: If you have winter wheels that are steel, you'd need to change them as steel wheels + RWD F-Sport brakes is a no-no. I've not seen an explanation of why, but imagine it's...

It's not you, there is a definite yellowish tint to the glass. I think it's an effect of the UV-blocking glass.
