My experience with BMW: 90% of nonsense warning lights are caused by low battery float voltage. Use a battery tender when you park your car at night, especially in cold weather.

I would skip the PCD and put the money towards taking the 2-day Performance Driving School. I took that and it was more fun than an X6 full of monkeys.

OK, I misunderstood. I thought the first (Nissan) dealer had sold him a car that was crash damaged without revealing that.

Thanks.

Thought it was 5 years where they give you the badge? I debated whether to go to 5 years to get the badge but then decided meh, I wouldn't put the badge on anyway, so stuck with 3 years.

Check out rinseless wash products. You don't need a hose, just 2 buckets of warm water, and you can wash the car in your garage with the door shut. They work very well. I use this all winter long.

Correct, same here in May 2013. I financed a tiny amount and paid it off after 6 months (the sales guy said the dealership gets charged the incentive if I paid it off in less than 6 months).

If you park the car in a garage, it's worth getting an undercarriage wash once in a while. The slush keeps melting and freezing, which allows the salt access to internal parts of the chassis.
