No worries.

I use Z-8 on the matte black metal parts too; keeps 'em nice and fresh.

I can't imagine why you would use those on vinyl. Clean with your favorite mild detergent and, if you must, finish up with 303 or Vinylex.

For a lease or a short-term ownership situation (i.e. buy and sell in three years) they are not as far apart as the selling price would suggest. I shopped both cars when I got my X3. The Subaru...

Call your insurance company and have them work it out with the dealer. Take it to your shop. If you have a deductible, collect it from the dealer.

Another vote for Hot Rims as maintenance.

Well, it's more than I pay, but it's hard to say if it's a good deal given all the variables (location of home & work, age, driving record, miles driven, etc.).

MACO & training could be around $500-600 depending on where you are, so your offer is more like $400-500 over invoice.

Can't say for a 3er, but it's only trivially different from my '00 Mustang V-6 and '96 C280.

I think it's your belt. It looks exactly like the stain that appeared on my tan Ford seats, which I was never able to remove.

Replacement in this case would be somewhat futile, as it will just...

Fair warning, I have not driven a 540, but I have driven the 530, M5, and 740i. The 740 was no slouch, but the 530 was a dream. In fact, when I drove the M5 (briefly) after the 530, my first...

Why doesn't it make sense? The dealer makes money on warranty service, and the OP says he goes elsewhere for service, so he's happy to have the selling dealer make money on the sale.

So, what's the big deal?

Let the vendor prove it - give them your specs. Get their quote. Go to your BMW dealer and do your best. Then pick the deal that's better.
