If you are buying CPO, odds are you have a trade in. So they can bend you over on the trade in while lowering the cost of the CPO. Tough to come out ahead in that situation.

Instead, take your...

That price is outrageous. When was the last time you broke a wheel (not got a little road rash)? And Tirerack and Costco give you road hazard insurance FOR FREE when you purchase tires from them.

Sounds a lot like tramlining.

In addition to the alignment, I would also check your tire pressures. It's amazing how many BMW's are delivered with over inflated tires.

I'm stuck with 2VF on our 428 and I would MUCH rather have 704. 2VF has softer springs, resulting in more dive when braking and more squat on acceleration.

Can we stop splitting hairs? Neither pairs of my polarized sunglasses have worked in any of my cars with HUD: F31, F10, or F32. It's infuriating BMW can't get this right.

I can't say for sure about the G30, but in the F10 you definitely could code the temperature cooler. Even the coldest setting wasn't really "frigid", but it was adjustable. Check out this link:
