I recently tried a sample of Meguiars Cleaner wax. It came in my claybar kit. It was interesting that it directs you to apply to the entire car and let dry, rather than do one panel at a time like...

Can anyone confirm that the BMW ipod interface adapter is fully compatible with the current 6th generation ipod nano that came out last Fall? I would assume so, however BMW's website still lists...

How do you like the rest of the new disc vs. your old one? Are the graphics the same or did you notice any improvement? I am interested if there are improvements beyond the street updates.

Thanks for all the replies. I called today and got the $77 a year rate, which was "one year at half price". My first call did not give any results. Second time was a charm. I guess it depends on...

How do you like the TeleAtlas maps versus the old Navtec maps? Any difference in the graphics, or is it mainly just updated streets and POI's?

Those sure look to me like Sport Edition A7 wheels with BMW caps stuck on them. You can find those on the Tire Rack website.

They must have ended this promotion. I tried this today and that's not an option. Looks like they're offering one month free if you buy a year, or up to 9 mos. free if you buy a 3-year subscription.

Can you tell me which package you got for $77? Was it the Sirius Everything (no XM) or the Sirius Plus Best of XM, or the Sirius XM All in One? Big price differences in each of these.

Did you go with staggered 124's (i.e. 18x8 in front and 18x9 in back) or did you put 18x8 124's all around? I would think the 8"ers would be a little better in snow. Maybe not much difference?
