I use the BMW soft top cleaner and it has always worked just fine. You can buy it at the dealer. It's expensive, but there is enough to do at least two applications and I apply twice a year.

The IS350 IS heavier. At least heavier than the other cars in the segment. I think it's a 6 second car, which is pretty dissapointing. I won't fault anyone for buying an IS350, I'm just not a fan....

Not sure if I would put too much weight behind these quotes. It's marketing material straight from BMW.

Anecdotally, my 911 is still under warranty. Porsche has the same 4 year warranty period...

I'm not entirely sure, but I believe it does not charge when the power is off. More specifically, when the accessories are off.

Estoril blue is a fantastic color. It was on my M roadster. Just my opinion, but red is a good color, Estoril Blue was traditionally an M color.

You realize that it will go from a car that people know to a car nomenclature that will mean nothing. Most BMW owers won't even know what it means.

I wouldn't debadge. If I saw it on the road, the first thing I would assume is that it's a lower model.
