I would put it towards the house as a downpayment vs. towards BMW FS as a lease. That's nuts to put it towards a leased car that could be nuked in an accident (more probable than your house being...

No, they seem to be a bunch of Tossers. I don't wave to other car drivers. Even if you pull up to other drivers at the gas pump, they're clueless. Unless you run into another BMW fan they'll look...

Hey Boston,

I didn't say it's unique to BMW. It can happen to any car--or even a tank.

The point is, that drivers need to watch road conditions when driving in deeper snow....they change.

Why are people so concerned with high centering?? This isn't unique to BMW whatsoever!

With my 11 535 I used an OE BMW Battery Charger (same as Battery Tender) in both winter and summer. I'd get discharging warnings in hot weather too.

The second is to find a buyer, or trade it in for another car. You'll get offered a very low auction...

I'll put it this way--I'd never own an F10 out of any type of warranty. It's looking that the 535's N55 is a problem child as much as the the 550's N63--which is quite sad. Fantastic machines where...
