Thank you. This is my 4th Bimmer so I think I've earned the right to be critical where I feel it's warranted. I guess I'm just not as infatuated with BMWs as I once was. That said, and despite my...

Yup. Don't buy my lease returns. I'm going to beat the crap out of them. In fact I only get the free maintenance because it's -wait for it- free!!! That and the free coffee and doughnuts. In fact,...

30K mile lease. I expect to pay for gas, oil changes and an occasional car wash. If a car manufacturer can't deliver on that then it's on to the next.

Not when I'm leasing. I don't expect or want to replace tires before my 30K lease expires. Makes no sense to have to do do for a simple nail hole.

The fault lies with the manufacturer who refuses to give its customers the option of a traditional tire. Cool. But don't be surprised when your business strategy turns off customers. Even those who...

So no love for the GTI?

The lease on one is pretty attractive. I had a 1987 GTI and it is one of the best cars I've ever owned. That was a long time ago though and I know the global economy has...

Yup. The spare on the TLX is an option. I still like that it has conventional rubber. Patch it and go. I'm calling around tomorrow and looking to see if I can find someone to patch my tire. I'll keep...

Thankfully a $300 tire won't keep my kids out of college so it's not about the money. Like I said it's more about the inconvenience and difficulty of resolving simple problems.

I hear you and I know stuff happens, but my point is that what should be simple stuff turns into a week long and pricey ordeal.

PZero. My one year anniversary was on September 30th. Great timing I know. Discount Tires calculated the pro-rated discount for me and my new tire would be $200 plus tax. Not bad, but I'm thinking of...

I need to look at the VWs too. A GTI may be just right. The thing is I'm commuting about 12 miles round trip these days. I spend more time with good cigars and rum than I do in my car ;- )

I have the S Drive so no hydraulic steering for me. I knew that going in though and honestly it's not my biggest gripe. I can live with it.

Good point. I've been using this dealer for 8 years and never had a problem so I didn't think to do a pre-inspection. Nor did they, however. Depending on how this turns out I may insist on them from...

X1 M-sport

Thanks for the report. I was a bit worried about the summer performance tires on my M Sport too, but San Antonio doesn't get nearly as tricky as north Texas.

Official E84 X1 Le Mans Blue Photo Thread

So I decided to trade in my year old 328i coupe for a new X1. Needed something a little more practical but wanted to stay in a smaller vehicle. The X1 is just right! Love everything about it so far!...
