I don't think it will have a steep price increase. The F30 moved up in price because BMW is slotting a sedan under it soon. The X3 is already positioned nicely under the X5, with its max price...

There is a sponsor here that'll sell it for a hair of $1825. I was all ready to give him my CC info to charge the cost until my dealer laid out what they would charge for the expected services until...

Meh, Mercedes does it. BMW is a business, why take the profit hit when some people won't even notice the difference/don't care? :dunno:

OP, given the options your car is in the ballpark but I would nudge it down another grand or two. My car listed for slightly cheaper than that last year with the same options, but I got them to knock...

It's not your tire pressure if it's malfunctioning. May just need a new sensor. Quick dealer visit will get that taken care of, but that's no less annoying for you I'm sure.

I too am not a huge fan of the F10, although all I've gotten are well-equipped 528i loaners. Don't even get me started on the uncouth turbo 4. If I still need a nondescript, non flashy luxury car in...

More important than getting the tranny fluid flushed would be making sure there's not a leak at the mechatronics unit.

Gardis, I feel your pain. I like the comfort of the dealer and knowing I'll get a loaner car while my vehicle is in for service. My CPO car is projecting that I won't need brakes until after 50k...

Dealer/shop time. The water is a bad sign, as that means you have a seal that is defective. As you know, water and electronics don't mix.

Good to hear you're covered under warranty. We can account for all the common problems we want to, but they will always be random expensive repairs involved with owning a luxury car unfortunately.
