I would counsel against this unit. I bought one some time ago at a similar price and while I still have it on my car, it is not a great fit. As a result it is not a simple bolt on. You do have to...

You are lucky. Mine didn't. After spending untold hours trying to figure it out and a couple of phone calls, I had to get a converter to attach to my 20 year old opener. Works fine now.

Also, if you have an old garage door opener it may not work, ever. The old technology is not compatible with the Home Link system.

Dealers play KKB to their advantage. They tout it when they like it; and they pan it when they don't.

I had one dealership advertise that they would pay KKB trade in plus $2,000 for used cars. ...

The OPs problem is, in Dubai, the M4 is $24K more than the GTS. For that difference, IMHO, the GTS is the choice. YMMV.

Top or no top is personal preference. You can see what my preference is. However, I do, in fact, think the S is worth the cost. But again, that is personal preference.

Maybe this is directed to somebody else, but I expressed no opinion on leasing v. buying. That is a personal financial/preference issue.

This is simply not true and is minimizing the effect of the tune. More power comes at the expense of more wear and tear. The Dinan tune is considered to be a very mild tune. Read what Steve Dinan...
