Tim,

Thanks so much. Unfortunately, if I don't buy my F10 at the end of the lease it will mean no more BMW for me. I must have either a diesel or a hybrid.

Thanks again,

What about a diesel? None at launch, or do you think they are giving up in the US?

My nav system sometimes has me take an exit, drive around the block and get right back on the highway. I think it's a flaw in the traffic avoidance logic.

I did take photos of the dash messages and sent them to my SA. The car was still doing it when I brought it in.

I should have taken photos of the fuel gauge, showing the odometer.

Thanks,

All is Well now

All is well now, everything is working without error messages. Even the fuel gauge seems more stable.

We will see how long this lasts :)

Thanks all.

OK, just got the car back from the dealer. Apparently this is a known issue which involves replacing the front bumper cameras and running new fiber optic cables.
No answer on the fuel gauge though.

This is not a good deal at all. I agree with the others, the cap cost is way too high. It should be invoice (92% of MSRP) plus $500 minus incentives. Also be aware of how many miles per year the...
