Mine doesn't have jerky upshifts but it does have jerky downshifts on occasion.

Try this: Drive your car to Vegas. Get it out on the open road at 75-80+ mph for a couple hours so you *know* the...

I would have your A/C looked at. The A/C in my 7-year old 335i gets extremely cold. No issues cooling the car off (just got a reading of +102F over the lunch hour today).

It is what it is... :) Thanks for detailing that out. "Free" Nappa leather is the best kind.

BTW, not to change topics but any regrets or things you miss compared to your E90(s)?

The oil leak is probably coming from the oil filter housing gasket. That's another common one... You want an automatic? Make me an offer on mine. :)

535i / 535d lease rates?

Can anyone share?

Also, any incentives presently offered other than $1,500 option credit and $500 Eco Credit (535d)?

Thanks!
