For #2, I find using more wash is better, more lather, less resistance on the paint.

For #6, use a synthetic finish like Zaino and you only have to do it every 4-6 months. Waxing every month can...

Seems high - but need more info like Money Factor for example. You should also be able to get more than $2k off MSRP.

Nothing looks better than a shiny new basic black. Saphire black is more forgiving when it comes to dirt. Some people like the metallic aspect of the Saphire - I happen to be one of those. Can't go...

Cranking up the brightness to max does help but I wouldn't say it works just fine. It makes the HUD viewable but IMO, still dim. Its just the tradeoff for wearing polarized lenses. #firstworldproblems

For me it comes down to just 2 things:

- E90 had tighter steering and better connection/feel to the road. Car felt like it was on rails. The F30 is certainly softer - but I do acknowledge that...

Xenons looks beautiful. There's nothing like BMW angel eyes.

I didn't opt for HK and I'm pretty happy with stock sound but while I enjoy music as much as the next guy, I'm no audiophile.

Based on how you explained it, I'm in agreement with you. That dude was just reckless and I would've done the same thing.

I dunno. He was already driving 24mph OVER the speed limit (it was in a 55 zone) so that's pretty fast IMO. If the other driver was coming up his a$$ at 100mph that's just plain reckless. Who knows...
