If you really need a track car just get the 335 for the daily driver and get a E46 M3 for track days. They usually run about $15k.

Similar question as above but I want to stay with the 18' wheels for my F30 sportline. I want to go wider for autocross and the stock is 225/40/18. I believe I can go up to 245 all around?

I think is the one of many threads out here of people who get a 320 then bitch about it. If you can't afford a at least 328i then maybe BMW isn't the brand for you. The 320 is basically a ford Taurus...

Absolutely correct. I had a bunch of bird dropping stains on my dark metallic blue and they all came out once I clayed and DA polished.

Agree on the polisher. Try to find a friend who has a good one and try it out. Don't ruin your paint on a $30 polisher. My set of polisher pads are $60 themselves.

From someone who owned Ford's and just did turtle wax before getting my first BMW last year, detailing a BMW is a lot of research and money.

I recommend spending a lot of time on Autogeek.net....

Wrong tires

Had the reverse problem with my delivery. Ordered all seasons and got summers. Not a good idea in Boston. Thankfully the dealer resolved the issue after re delivery.

Itinerary review

For some reason the cleanest Burger King I ever saw is right down the street from the Dachau concentration camp. Harley Davidson themed also.

Lufthansa air deal

Don't bother with this deal. Even when it was in play they only discounted the "fare" not the taxes which is 50% of the ticket. It sounds great as a marketing ploy, but economically your better off...

Language Skills for the FUTURE?

French is the most widely spoken language in the world. Plus for traveling the French tend to be the least bilingual. In Germany everyone under 30 speaks English.
