Checking this on my phone, but im excited to check em out on a computer in a bit.

I gotta read up on the autobahn and why Germany has one but we don't. Probably our stupid safety laws.

Well, it depends if you mean the Autobahn as a concept or not versus a more prosaic definition. Germany, just like the U.S. and other motorized nations, has many limited access, high-speed motorways or Autobahnen.

I would recommend reading the Wikipedia entry on Autobahnen for a start.

Ja, this replaces the 550i. I am a big believer in diesel which is why I started The Diesel Driver magazine.
