What a disaster for the poor OP. There have been lots of problems but this is an entirely new level of F@@@ed up-ness. I picked up some curb rash on the front bumper of my 335d. They had to pull it...

When I sold my 2011 335d Msport with 23k miles CarMax offered me $22k and my local dealer $26k, both without trades. To be clear the car had had a serious fender bender, to which I alerted both...

Here in California you see Euro and D(eutschland) plates from time to time but nearly always covered up with the real plates. Otherwise it is an easy and fat citation I have heard. I am a fan and it...
