I'll be reaching out to BMW to see if I can find out how much they would take off for auto body repairs at trade-in. I know it will be more than $1,000. ...

I'm not sure how the loaner factors in but I did have a loaner for 1 of the 5 weeks on them. It took over a week for them to acknowledge they were at fault. Then my car went in the shop and they...

I'm curious why you don't think MA honors it? I know MA insurance companies won't acknowledge it as there is no law requiring them to but I think the courts will. The auto body shop gave me the name...

There is a three year clause in Massachusetts. I figured the diminished value would be greatest now vs. a few years from now as my car will only depreciate. It will be interesting to see if it gets...

Yes, they do. My insurance company will tell you "we don't do that" but the law exists. The auto body shop actually told me about it. Around here the dealers don't want to deal with any BMW that...

It's definitely not the tires. It is the engine. I should add that it's not even "cold" here in new england yet. It's been about 60 F when I've experienced this. At first my husband and I thought it...

Hi, I've noticed that my 2013 X3 28i shakes when the engine is cold. This is most noticeable around 40 mph. The first time this happened I turned around, drove home, and took the train to work. I've...

I would agree that the mileage isn't a selling point. But, the new 2013 engine is so much better! I waited for it and am very happy I did. The throttle lag on the older vehicle was a no deal for me.
