How is that even allowed?
In NY you can't even put an O in between two 0's, let alone trying to get a plate that read 0O00O0O.

If I didn't care about how bad any plate up front of a BMW looked,...

Love the black plates! I thought Delaware was the only one with black plates and it was also being discontinued. It sucks to pay $800 for 10 years, are they being offered in shorter terms? It would...

He is in England, that's the standard plate format, rectangular plates with blue strip.
My guess is, it's his rear plate from E53 on front of F15.

I've seen people in USA put Euro plates on the...

Is this a lease or finance?
In either case when rates go down, they usually do this. If you negotiated a price and they gave you a monthly cost which you agreed, they will just bump up the sale...

Congratulations and safe travels. Nice 5.0.
Did you actually get a chance to see the comfort rear seats before ordering them?

If there is anyway to easily add a simple amp and subwoofer, I'd definitely do that. I had a $150 subwoofer and $120 Alpine Amp in my previous vehicles and they had enough boom to shake your fillings.

That looks like what we have on xLine, it looks great with rest of the busy front end, but on a completely black vehicle, I'd go with msport grills matching rest of the shadowline trim.

I also have HK sound and it always felt like I needed to add a subwoofer in the back. I don't believe any stock system with stock subwoofers (even premium) will be enough to punch you in the gut. ...

Scratch X worked for me several times but it still leaves a faint mark if the scratch is anything more than a "rub". Yours looks like a rub, good luck.

Are you going to do something about the amber reflectors?

Hit AUTO on your dash first, then see if it can be activated, my guess is if A/C is not working the button might be grayed out. Also you can try hitting Sync, that might override the iDrive setting.
