Bump.

Do any dealers have info on these options or is this program exclusive to the 4-coupe and not available for the 4-GC?

Considering going from 335i to 135i

This is all great feedback, thanks! One thing I'm concerned about is that it only has 6,000 on it. Should I be worried this this might be a track-used car?
