I voted 6 to 7 but I may keep it much longer. It's a thrill to look at and drive brand new BMWs, but by then I'll be so comfortable driving my X3, I would be too attached to trade it in.

Since we got the 28i instead of the 35i and I don't disable the auto stop, I only use Comfort and Sport. For fun, I'll use the paddle shifters to kick it up. We tried Eco just to be sure it worked,...

Found out from BMW USA that there are no key codes issued, you get replacement key fobs from your dealer or BMW Service Center. Again, thank you all for the prompt replies.

Thanks for the prompt replies. The cost of a new key fob was posted at my dealer's service desk as $220. Pretty steep in my book, so I'll have to be really careful. I'll post what else I find out.

It's a code number so that the dealer service department can program another key fob in case you lose or damage yours. I did check the case containing the owner's manual and "welcome kit" but didn't...

Just got the 3M tint in 35% and it matches the privacy glass nearly perfect IMHO. Do check what's legal in your location. Since I live in a more rural county, I could have gone darker, but I think it...
