I could tell you some Ferrari stories that would you cry. Trust me, there's no correlation between what you pay and quality. I've had 3 750's and have had two very small issues. I tracked an e46 m3...

I agree on the iDrive. I had a 2005 750 and it was OK. I've got a 2012 750 and it is much better but I don't know that it would have a lot of sway on the car I bought. As you say, I'd rather go...

My wording was poor in my post. I should have said, is there a significant reason to stay away from MY 2008. Some cars, like the 2002 745's had many reasons to wait. Weep hole issues and so on. I...

Is 2008 a bad year?

A newbie question. I always avoid the first year of a new model and it has served me well with German cars. That said, I'm looking at M3's and there are a couple of 2008's that have a good profile....

I know the switch away from run flats is old news but I thought I'd pass on my experience moving to BStone S04's. The run flats had 8K on them. Not used up at all. It is nothing short of shocking...

CPO cover electronics?

My PDC audio went out and I'm pretty sure it's the ASK module. What I can't find a clear answer on is if the CPO covers the ASK module or other electronics. Does anybody know? Thanks.

It's too slow and not very intuitive. Tuning the radio or sat is ridiculous. Technology for the sake of technology. I don't think it improved on the multi-button setups as it was supposed to do.
