Its just a car until someone falsely accuses you of injuring them, you could literally lose everything if they decide your insurance limits are not enough.

No, the camera is there for your personal use. Much like you can not demand the dash footage from a police car. They successfully argue it's there for "police protection" not to aide citizens. They...

The issue here is there is no unearned interest, because there is no interest. You are paying a rent charge. If you want to get technical about it, you are also carrying around your residual money...

I have not done it myself, but there are plenty of DIY on here. Look in the E39 forum, just search CCV valve or something. The 540i has the same motor.

Yes, the crank case vent valve is known to make an odd noise when it gets plugged up or whatever.

This is what yours sounds like?

It sounds very plausible that your blower motor issue is a coincidence. I can't even think of something one would do to cause a blower motor to vibrate like that. Unfortunate, but at 90k miles these...

Never been pulled over on storrow, but I did get lit up. He pulled along side me, rolled his window down, and told me to slow the **** down! I think I laughed for about 3 days after :D

From what I'm told by the dpw in my town, the Chargers have serious reliability problems and are costing an arm and a leg to fix, no wonder they are trying something else. I don't blame em.

The cost of gap insurance IS the same, no matter if it's a $32k loan or a $95k loan. I never worked for BMW in particular, but I've sold $80,000 cars and $20,000 cars and gap is exactly the same...

I doubt they got any kind of verification, I was in F&I for years and only ever took a paystub with bad credit customers. In fact, I'd wager something that it would work :p
