The bamboo anthracite wood trim also looks great. The grain gives the interior a more sporty feel, while the wood still keeps it feeling warm and premium.

So if you decided to ignore the click (err, little clunk), would it progressively get worse and eventually lead to a total transmission failure?

You're right--the FM antenna is not located in the shark fin (although this is what my CA told me when I purchased by 2007 E92--and that certainly seemed logical). So much for taking someone at the...

I'd thoroughly review the CPO Warranty to verify if there is an explicity exclusion for the fuel lines or a definition of what BMW considers the Fuel System to be.

Since the new 3-Series Sedan won't launch here in the US until early 2012, I'm betting BMW is going to label it a MY2013 vehicle (first coupes MY2014 launching mid CY2013). It's rare anymore to see...
