Just a short intro as I am new to the forums on BMW CCA. I have owned BMWs for the past 20 odd years and am now on my 11th BMW. Seven 5ers, two X5s, one 3 series and one Z4 (Coupe 3.0Si). Currently own the Z4 and just purchased a new 2012 528i with that amazing N20 4 cyl. engine. First time on these forums but been a BMW CCA member for nearly 6 years. Looking forward to reading about the experiences of other members and especially reaction to this new engine in the 5er. I am originally from the UK but live in Austin, Texas so am a member of Tejas chapter. I tend not to be into the meets, but like to share technical and other experiences with other drivers of BMW products. Love the cars and have always placed handling at the top of my list. "The Ultimate Driving Machine" has always seemed appropriate.
