You might be ok.

The issue is generally the aggressive camber with the staggered setup (can not rotate) for the sports package. Better handling, more grip, etc. at the expense of tire wear.

Currently the law states the dealers pay the TAVT and you still pay monthly sales tax on the payment. This is not something they can pass on to consumers.

Looks like an attempt to adhere to the CAFE standards.

It will be interesting to know if the turbo/engine can be tuned/chipped to be in the ballpark of the 328i.

Ok, thanks.

I'll try a search on known issues, but initially I just knew about the hpfp and turbos.
