Beautiful story. Thanks for sharing. Makes up a little for all the times when the story ends tragically for the ground hog (wood chuck).

2017 Lease question

Question:

Is the 10K/36 mo residual on a 2017 440i convertible 57%? Seems low.

Once again, I don't get this leasing stuff and always end up buying.

Thanks.

Dipstick Days

How I miss the good ole' "dipstick days".

You could order a pizza for delivery, suck the old oil out, change the oil filter and put the new oil in before the pizza was delivered.

Maybe the seats don't move but the seat back folds down to make a storage deck. Very handy.

Get an Continental air compressor kit and AAA and you got it covered.
