Thoughts on buying 2011 e91 with 70k miles

There are probably a 100+ e92's on the market for every e91, so direct price comparisons are a little difficult. I'm not trying to say e91's command any premium, just that there's a lot fewer...

Thoughts on buying 2011 e91 with 70k miles

E9x reliability has improved (predictably) as the model years have advanced. Considering the scarcity of e91s available, if you like the car I'd look past the mileage concerns if it has a CPO...

I don't recall seeing the 7 band eq (I have H/K without iDrive), but its been awhile since I've adjusted anything.

Is iDrive worth it?

I just had to go look, as I literally haven't touched it in almost 2 yrs since I installed it! I have one of these A2DP 30-pin iphone receivers http://bit.ly/121CXsR. I also have a 12v to USB...

Correct...although a $15 Bluetooth streaming adapter plugged into my Aux port works perfect for me when I'm too lazy to plug in the iPhone cable.

Is iDrive worth it?

iDrive is not a must-have in my opinion. I had it on my 2010 but specifically did NOT order it on my 2012 and have no regrets what so ever. It took 5 seconds to pair my phone with Bluetooth and I...

Yes, aside from the fun factor and not having to replace a $5k part every 100,000 miles (+/- 50,000mi), there's no real justification for a MT. If you're buying a car for convenience and utility,...

Very nice e91! And good price too...I love my '12 M-Sport wagon and have yet to see another one on the road in the 1+ yr I've owned it. I predict this one won't last long.

Thanks, interesting info. I only knew they were not illegal per-se, but the additional details in the DOT spec. you posted explains the absence on BMWs, or at least the 3-er.

Congrats on the wagon! I went from an AT 335d to a 6MT 328xiT M-Sport (and no iDrive) myself, and couldn't be happier. It would nice sometimes to have that extra 200lb/ft of torque of the diesel,...
