How is this deal for a CPO 2011 335i?

Sounds like a fair deal. Paid about $36k for mine with 9500 miles, but without convenience and cold weather. I have CPO, performance edition upgrade (the factory tune), sport, premium, nav and...

Interesting read, but if what he thinks were true, a 16bit/44khz cd would sound better than an analog version of the same recording. One thing he said is true, you do need a system that can handle...

NE1 know a detailer in Middle TN that can apply Opti-Guard?

Looking for a detailer experienced in Opti-Guard. Would also need to do the prep, on a fairly well maintained vehicle (just bought it, I'm the 2nd owner).

Any help would be appreciated.
