I think there was an earlier post that this was added in later model year 2014.

Have you ever checked with a good gauge to compare to the TPMS reading to see how accurate it is?

The 2014 models did away with the old "annual low mileage oil change" and now the CBS calls for a change at one year or 10,000 miles. The one year starts from the day the car completed production, so...

No you won't. If the car is totaled your BMW lease includes GAP protection, so you would get a full refund for the "unused" payments.

You would. A BMW prepaid lease gets you .0008 off the MF. So say the current MF is .00127, you would have a .00047 MF (1.175% interest). I think it is a good deal and plan to do this with my next...

I think you are kind of making BJ's point here. Even using your own numbers you saved $7,000 over a nine year period. 9 x 12 months = 108 // 7000/108 = $64 a month.

So for $64 more a month I can...

I agree it is ridiculous you can't get ventilated seats in a 3-series when even a Honda Accord has them. I suspect BMW is trying to push you into a 5-series.
