Two and a half years down the road, I just wanted to update this with the fact that the new wheel chips off the metal color to show something white underneath. I don't know what this means, but it...

How much should fixing my seat motor cost?

The dealer wanted $150 to give me a quote on fixing the seat which will no longer move forward and back. A local Porsche/BMW repair place just quoted me $710 to replace the motor ($389 for the...

Any way to know if Nav drive is bad, or just DVD?

About a year ago I started having to occasionally eject the DVD and reinsert to make the nav work. Eventually, that stopped working. Now all I see is "please insert DVD". It's a 2008 w/ about 55k...

Thanks for the reply. The noise actually seems to be getting fainter, and less frequent. Do you think that's consistent with your dust plate diagnosis?

Weird noise upon turning

Weird, whining, metallic noise upon making a sharp left turn. Only happens at low speed...i suppose because you wouldn't make a turn that sharp at high speed. So turning left into a parking space,...

I think it's the miles. That's a lot of miles for an '08. I imagine most people who have set their search parameters for '08 are looking for fewer miles. Dropping the price under the $20k mark...

FYI - What BMW wheels cost!!

I can't believe one small pothole made a 1 1/2 crack in the middle of my 19" wheel. I also can't believe the local dealer wants $750 for a replacement.

Thanks Nick at Factory Wheel Warehouse...

I don't think you overpaid THAT much. A CPO adds about $3k to the price of a car. And trade-in vs. retail subtracts 10-15%. So...start at 31, take off $3k for CPO and another $3k for 1/2 year...
