Yes and due to this 'feature' a new battery will run you $450. They don't call them stealerships for nothing.

I would say it depends on what is covered. If the extended warranty covers the roof mechanism I'd say go for it. $8400 isn't going to be enough if your roof malfunctions. Given BMW's experience with...

Another thing to consider is that ED cars don't come out of the dealers allocation. So if you are working with a smaller dealer and he might have only one M car per month he will want top dollar for...

Closing the top from outside the car via comfort access is not as great as it sounds. At least not when the car also has an alarm. I set off the alarm about 80% of the time rather than invoking the...

No I would not expect the OEM Bridgestones to last that long. Their UTQG rating is only 140. They are sticky as hell, but the soft rubber wears out quickly. I would be surprised if you get more then...

The most annoying thing about CA and the loading feature is that at about half the time I set off the alarm instead of moving the roof.

I got the alarm. Works well. Esp when I forget about it, lock the car with the top down, then grab something from the inside of the car. Other than that no trouble.

lol... below 50.. you guys from FL crack me up. I've driven with the top down in 40 degree weather when it's sunny. There's a reason the thing has a heater, steering wheel and seat warmers.

BMW hasn't given up on the N54. The new 1M coupe will be using this engine. If N54 would really be such gloom and doom I'm sure they would have opted to put the N55 in the 1M. Just my $.02
