My point exactly. The people who baby their cars - do the under 4,500RPM stuff for the first 1,200 miles "seem" to use a lot more oil than others who just drove their car (I personally think the...

As an FYI, the Amazon Music player has full integration with BMW Apps. If you are a prime member, it is free. Wish I had known this a while ago.

No, the extra month is because they need to get it into the production cycle (since it has to be painted rather than pulled from the rack). So you already have that in your 7 weeks. My dealer told...

There are two things at play here
1. Your dealer needs an order slot. Either they have one or have to trade for one. I suspect that their next order slot was probably 4 weeks away from when you...

BMW threw $7,500 cash back on the 6-series (all including M except the GCs) for Feb/March. Thus their sales were CRAZY. Now remember 2015 production began in March and...
