looks more like the prior E84 X1, but those side windows are even shorter. I think the E84 looks much better, though I'm biased since I have an E84.

I'm not sure about the 320i, but the LCI 328i I drove had significantly more power than the Pre-LCI 328i. It felt like it had at least 25 more hp! The engine sounds a whole lot better too. Drive...

I'm not sure why there is an argument of which car is better, Accord or 3 Series.

Isn't clear that BMW offers less value but a better driving experience for the minority who can feel it?

Yes...

glad it's gone, but there shouldn't be any need for "conditioner" esp at that low mileage. changing the fluid often is good idea, but 30K might be overkill. Just check the condition of the fluid...

that is a very good price! Grab it.

Most dealers want $500-$1000 over invoice plus all fees. this is 2-3K less than than, if I assume invoice is 92.5% of MSRP.

If it's the coil, misses would be more pronounced and likely trigger the SES light.

I bet it's the drive shaft guibo/flex disk (rubber coupler) that has started crack. How many miles on the car?

Mine was acting up and it was the Final Stage Unit as suspected. It's a weak link in BMW HVAC systems.

Report back on what the dealer says.

Good to know, thanks. I'll disconnect the muffler to see what it sounds like, I'm assuming there is a flange that can be unbolted. Did you run a straight pipe out the back?
