Angry My 535d stranded me in the fast lane on Olympic Blvd.

My car simply died as I was pulling up to a light. Would crank, but would not start. And fortunately a tow truck driving by towed me off to the side. BMW Assist was nearly worthless -- it took...

Have you had any time in an E39? It had the best, most lively BMW-like road feel of any BMW I've driven since 1990. I'm not critical of the F30's steering, but the E39 highlights what kind of feel...

So, I'm curious if this is all configurable via software, why can't we have it both ways (via a setting in iDrive)? Those who want feel can have it, and those who don't, wont.

Recall that the carrier has to pay ACV, and possibly sales tax as well. Salvage is nearly always deeply discounted just for the nature of the marketplace. I cannot imagine salvage + repair = ACV.

Mark, how is the torque and acceleration when in electric drive? I test drove one when it first came out and the car was very anemic, though I may not have understood the system very well.

3 Series cars down close to 25% on a YTD basis. Very surprising considering that they received an LCI refresh in the latter year. Oddly, the aging 5 is down much less.

Does the USAA lease incentive still negate the CCA rebate, but no others? Still, $1,000 vs $500 for the 3/4 Series is an improvement.
