You suspect?

I ordered a new 335is with the 6MT after I found out that replacing a DCT would cost north of $12,000 plus labor. And at the time the reliability of the DCT was unproven.

M3 Rear bushings with Koni FSDs

You should also be compensated for "loss of value" since the car's resale value will be affected by this history. My guess is that might be worth $5000, maybe more.

I put these tires on my 2011 335is coupe last month. They have about 800 miles on them to date. I like them a lot. My only gripe is that with the windows open they seem a bit noisy.
