Esqred, it will hard to keep it under $50K even if you ordering a 28i. Personally, I would rather trade the MSport package for either a 35i, xenon light package or dynamic handling package.

I think that comparing two cars that are 30 years apart in safety features is not very objective. Three years apart, I would say they are very comparable in safety features. The problem with these...

I think option 2 is the staggered tires, the rear is 275/40/19. The wider dimension will offset the 40 profile and the diameter of the front and back should be the same. If you live in KC, the 45 and...

I think the 528i is actually the noisiest under load and the 550i is the quietest, the 535i is somewhere in the middle. BMW has it backwards :)

I believe what you are referring to is the parking light, is the brake light working? Do you have xenon light option, if so, I think the rear parking lights are the LED light bars.
