No doubt, it is a long long time. The original intent on my old E39 was to sell after warranty ran out, but life went on and before long even the 12-year rust warranty ran out(and zero rust in CA)....

I tried to turn and envision where the flip down screen can be, e.g. around dome light, pop up from behind driver/passenger headrest, or rear headrest(too far to see?). None seems logical and...

And from year 7-12 the savings can be another $31k(assuming super low rates and subsidized residuals), plus FMV at year 12, say, $3k? That's $34k cushion for repairs and maintenance. It does take...

$31k would be almost the sales price of a 320i, right? One can hang on to the car for another 6 years and get a free car at the end of 12 years. :)

In 2023 some form of economical DCT may become standard equipment, although my wild guess is that ICE will still be the majority in 2023, given that battery tech really is not keeping up with the...

That's a valid concern. In addition to repair info, not all indy shops can afford some of the custom tools for BMW repairs.

Another issue is that, for PZEV/emission warrantied items, dealers...

For you is the MY15F30 base suspension adequate? Are you saying the base(softened) suspension can have less rattles that sport suspension?

Mine MY13 328i and it has been performing quite well for last 2.25+ years. It is a N26 with 15-yr/150k-mile warranty on all emission parts, so hopefully it can last past 100k miles and/or 10-12...

MY take is that the 320i and 328i engines are so close that in terms of reliability they are identical except for a factory tune plus beefed up components.

Also note that N26(which has...

Just curious, is N20 in 320i more reliable than N20/N26 in 328i? My guess is the latter(328i) one is quite reliable with the beefed up engine components(e.g. piston?).

One advantage of M adaptive suspension is the improved dampening on rough roads esp. on the early F30's. Recent MY15 no-line loaners with standard suspension showed noticeable improvement on such...

DHP without 704 still misses the sport anti-roll bars, so it is still not the same as 704.

That's pretty minor, $100 or so should take care of it if needed. At times it is just a matter of millimeters to curb or not. :)

A coworker did swap out his 320i's ZSP with the MPSK to get close to his E46 ZSP, so there is some truth to the softening of 704 compared to previous 3's(e.g. E46). Comparing F30 no-line, 704, and...

This matches with my limited passenger seat time on M3. :) If driven sedately it can be as comfortable as(and more luxurious than) my F30 no-line.

Thanks for the info, realoem does also show TKP as manufacturer of the steering rack. Online search does not return much info of the TKP setup though.
