You negotiate everything before placing the order. You'll likely need to put down a $500 down payment which is generally refundable (even though they sometimes make it sound like it might not be). ...

I can also only speak to my specific vehicles, but I've had three BMWs over the past 15 years and have been to the dealer maybe two or three times in that time for anything other than an oil...

I would say that one harm in letting it warm up would be that it's running "cold" longer than necessary, increasing wear. The goal is to get the car to its normal operating temperature as quickly as...

Just a guess, but it might also have to do with routing/space under the car. Maybe the X3 and others where the N55 exhaust has dual tips together on one side of the car have components in the way...

Can't quite remember, but I think my '99 E46 328i had a lock, too, along with a valet key. Maybe it coincides with the move to fobs without actual keys (except for the little emergency key)? They...

Nothing like that on my 2014 X3 28i. Doors appear to align perfectly. I'd definitely have them fix it.

Whatever it is, I find it works pretty well. On both my E90 and F25 it pretty much always prevented exhaust and similar smells into the cabin.

I can't help with Driver Assist Plus, but have a 2014 X3 28i with M-Sport.

I don't believe M-Sport changes the suspension, but you're right in that it does add 19" wheels, which may result in a...

Colors are really subjective, but since you're looking for opinions, I'd go with high-gloss/shadowline. If you want a bit of the metal look, I'd do the roof rails over the trim.

I had dedicated winter wheels/tires for my E90, but I'd ask your question over in the E90 forum if you don't get an answer here. I'm sure there are folks there who have changed over between winter...

Fair point, but if they have access to your keys and the car itself and they have less than honest intentions, creating a new fob is likely the least of the security problems.

I agree that an off button would be nice, but in the interest of accuracy, if you just hold the "fan speed down" button for a second or two, the system shuts off. I think this was probably mentioned...

Thanks. I kind of figured that out. I guess I just like up and down buttons better than that little scroll wheel.

Generally no loaner is provided while waiting for the car. The actual "sale" doesn't happen until delivery (just a deposit required to place an order).

Space Gray - I love my Carbon Black, but not a fan of Black-on-black and I think DHP + Sport Activity Package outweighs M-Sport.
