Nothing cherry picked about it. Your statement was demonstrably wrong. It was your argument I just pointed out it is wrong.

As for being a Prius person I am no such thing. I do not own one nor do...

Interested in the 328i Xdrive diesel or gas?

There's no thinking or opinion involved. You statement is demonstrably wrong. I provided you a link to a $2K battery. I could find lower cost examples if I wanted. That's not opinion. That's fact.

You're concerned you'll wear the tires to 2/32" by the time your GC arrives?

I agree with this. Sounds like you have a defective unit which may be shorting positive to ground. You were wise not to leave it plugged in.

Whoops...I think you're right. I misremembered it as an M5 for some reason. It has an M badge on it but too far away for me to read what it was. Got it in my head it was an M5 for some reason.

Unique M5

While this is not the M5 forum I thought participants in this forum would be interested in this M5 I saw over the weekend. Snapped a few pics before the light changed.

What you're referring to is the maintenance and not the warranty. This may sound pedantic but it is an important distinction given what paffinity mentioned about the MY2015 change.

Wrong. My vehicle insurance covers my vehicle and provides short term coverage on a new vehicle I've purchased. It does not provide coverage for a private party vehicle I want to test drive.
