My car is to be evaluated by a company called AutoVIN, not by a dealer. Once AutoVIN turns in their report, is there any room for negotiation with the dealer?

Thanks for the feedback. I havent made a decision yet, but the D is a definite possibility. I'm in NJ and didn't know that diesel was an exception to the full-service rule at the gas station.

535x to 535d ?

Hi - Has anyone gone from the F10 535xi to the 535d (x-drive) ?
It would be easy to just lease another 535xi (happy with the car), but I also would like to try something different. I want to...

I had a new 535x loaner recently (28 miles on it, M-sport). A NJ dealer. We did the quick walkaround, but neither of us looked at the tires. When I returned it, they didn't look it over at all - ...

Maybe I've just been lucky. Park in NY garages almost every day and nothing ever taken. Same for NJ dealer - never a problem. I leave coins, iPod, sunglasses.

I switched to a different dealer for service. They asked me to sign a form to approve the change. Now I get calls from the desired dealer when service is needed.

Picked up car tonight from garage - and the washer fluid was working. Must have defrosted in the garage. First time I've had this happen, but good to know.

I only use winter washer fluid, never water. I'll have to try it again this evening - it's in an underground garage now so hopefully above freezing (though it is single-digits today).

Must be a 2011 issue. I finally just turned off the Nav Dash display via iDrive settings. Even after reaching my destination, the arrow in the Dash would keep pointing back to that destination.

Thanks - I haven't ordered a 2014 yet. Are you staying with the 18" tires for the new car? If I want another 535, that requires a "no line" version and no fog lights. Or a 528. I'd prefer...

Are those the original tires? How many miles so far?
I'm wondering if they can possibly last through a 36 month lease.

RFTs in NE

25,000 miles mostly NY, NJ, PA. No issues with the 18 inch RFTs. I bought the tire insurance because of the hysteria on Bimmerfest at the time. But so far, haven't needed it.
