I've got a '16 328i with 1700 miles on it. It replaced a '14 328i, so the engine is substantially the same. My previous F30 got in the low to mid thirties on the highway. The new one gets in the mid...

Thanks for your input.

As for what I'd sign... I was wondering that myself. I don't see how they could have done all the paperwork at my house. I'll see tomorrow what's up.

I can't comment on the rest, but never put money down on a lease. If you kick in $10k, say, and you total the car soon thereafter your 10K is gone.

i3 Safety features?

Consider joining the BMW Car Club of America. Then email Mike Miller for his old school maintenance schedule. You'll spend more on maintenance but less or repairs.

I had beige Dakota for 4 years on my F10. Wore jeans a lot without problems. But then I tend to wear stonewashed jeans. Maybe that makes a difference?

My wife refuses to drive my F30, and she refused my F10 before that. She drove my E60 once or twice and was afraid of it, especially the way the turn signals work.
