I'd worry about the width. The F30 pops the trunk completely open, and I think that's done by taking up some room for the arms. If a dealership isn't too far away, I'd opt for an actual dry run.

F30s are still somewhat rare in the Boston area. Their numbers are climbing, but E90s still predominate. I have yet to see an F32.

The F30 also includes a major change to the suspension. So while switching tires may help a bit, just changing the tires won't get you into F30 territory.

You don't see mileage that low very often. I'd do $29K before someone else decides it's a good deal.

This is a bit of a religious debate. There are those who love their GPS systems and view iDrive as a waste of money. Others like the built-in convenience of iDrive. I fall into the latter camp. I...

If you're willing to buy new, you should look at a 3 Series GT. It was built on a long wheelbase and has acres of room.

I check my tire pressures before I bring my car to the dealer, and without fail they're incorrect when I get back home. Instead of 32/39 (per the door), they'll be like 38. So they take an air hose,...

In one of my Volvos, the heated seats were fine. Then one day, one got REALLY hot and it failed shortly after. This may be a warning sign that the heating is about to go.

You may be referring to the indicator for the Cruise Control, which zooms around on the periphery of the speedometer. Check it out in the User Manual to see if that's what you saw.
