Not sure about that. It might depend on whether it's an Xdrive model or not. Traditionally on the 3-series for example the xdrive msports didn't get the lowered suspension. Could be the same for the...

At first when they announced that the sport seats would be a...

Thanks this is helpful. I hadn't thought about the effect of tire width.

Unfortunately, I live in a...

At that vintage and milage I'd be concerned about carbon buildup. Ask the owner if it has been done and if so get documentation. If not you should expect to have to it within 20k miles.

Let's face it. For some ED is price in-elastic, i.e. shifts in the marginal price doesn't have much effect on subsequent demand. For others ED is very price elastic i.e. when the cost goes up demand...
