battery going bad? I used to have this happen with a shorted wire from my radio to the battery. It would reset all the stations - do the presets go away too?

Funny - wish I could replace my multi-contours with something that, for the money and praise, had lumbar in the arse area. Feels like I'm sitting in a hole IMO and would love to replace them.

The lease rates and residuals for the GT were incredible in the fall of 2011. The 550GT actually leased out better since it had a higher residual. The residual came from BMW as far as I know and...

Had BMW swap mine in 1 week and bought the continental flat tire kit to keep in the trunk (held nicely in place by the strap on the side of the trunk). I went with 18" Primacy's FWIW.
