I got a sport line with anthracite wood trim with the pearl gloss accents as well and I think it's the sharpest combo.

My understanding is that ALL 2014 F30's come with launch control if you have the 8 speed auto sport transmission as well in the US.

Anyone have a BMW splash screen for Garmin 3490?

I also think people will tend to drive and push their bmw's "harder" than other cars. This will ultimately cause wear/tear quicker.

Yeah, I think regardless of one's political leanings, Philadelphia can thank former Governor Randall (who used to be mayor of Philadelphia from 1992-2000) for that. He really did turn the city around.

Yes it is hard for me to fanthom because I would like to believe that people in general aren't so dumb. Unfortunately, it very well might be that i'm the dumb one for being so optimistic.
