If a car's facia is an analogy of its face, the BMW is a shark and the Accord is Hello Kitty.

Well, if someone prefers to drive a Mazda 3 or Honda Accord instead of a BMW F3x just because some magazine claims it's a better car I got a Bridge to sell you in Brooklyn.

I have no answer but you may want to try HK audio first before considering customization. HK audio is pretty impressive once you set the EQ to your liking.

The 330e is debuting @ the L.A. auto show next month. How appropriate! I average 11.3 MPG per trip in stop and go L.A. traffic and the 330e may be a good remedy....

+1... Very solid cockpit and Audi finally dumped that silly straight bottom steering wheel. I prefer physical instrumentation but LCD tachometers are now all the rage.

Determine the invoice price -- what the dealer paid -- and offer $500 more. Then negotiate. You should get it right around that. Don't pay more than $1K over invoice. Shop around. Good luck!

I urge you to get estimate by a BMW CCRC. Determine if your dealer's affiliate repair is actually a BMW CCRC facility. Many dealer affiliates are not. Price seems too low.

That is really sad! Glad you're OK. If you do get it repaired I advise having it done by a BMW CCRC -- Certified Collision Repair Center. It's worth the extra hassle and time. Good luck!

Not really. He just forced it back into place. He said the mirrors are designed to withstand such accidients.
I have an incentive to remember but good idea.

Thanks! I average under 8 MPH in severe stop and go traffic and also do short hops. Just averaged identical MPG on a 328i loaner so I don't think it's specific to my car.
