I've seen pictures here of this combo and surprisingly it looked pretty good. I wouldn't order one myself but it's a viable combination.

Nothing wrong with that but realize you are in the minority. The reason station wagons do poorly in the US is both perception and the reality that wagons were fat and ugly. They were supplanted by...

You're still missing the point. I have no interest in an AWD AT BMW as my everyday driver. I buy a 3 series because it's a great sports sedan and I buy the sportiest version I can afford. If I come...

In the last 3 months I've twice had to borrow friend's SUV's to go to Sears and Menards. We are renovating our bathroom and that means toilets, vanities, tubs and more. The F31 would not have worked...

I drive a 328i F30 RWD with MT. That's what I want in a sports sedan. No MT or RWD in a Touring. So the SUV would be our third car and the Cherokee is not a budget SUV unless your idea of an SUV is...

Thanks. I used the Edmunds lease calculator, used a selling price of $51K and a $750.00 incentive. There's probably more there. I got $635.00 for your monthly payment. If you can get more incentives...

I don't personally drive an SUV but if were to get a family hauler it would be an SUV. Mainly for trips to Home Depot and the like. There is more room in a similar size SUV than wagon just due to the...

All true but you are like Grandpa Simpson, yelling at clouds. It doesn't matter, no one wants a wagon. Wagon's have a bad reputation in the US. People think of Olds Vista Cruisers and the like. SUV's...

BJ, get us the residual and money factor please. Then we can estimate payments based on x amount over invoice.

Those were the standards with dino oil. No need to be that conservative with synthetic.

You are the master of using poor stats to make a point. The Accord was a long term test vehicle which include a lot of highway miles. The 320i was a short term test where they simply flog the car and...

There are no 1200 mile services. First is at about 10K miles. Why would you need a 1200 mile service? Some may want a break in oil change but this is a luxury with modern synthetic oils.

I'm sorry but that's not right. No way her sun glass case should set off the seat belt sensor. I've put a computer bag that weighs more than her purse on my passenger seat along with a few other...

That's a terrible response. Never talk to your CA about repairs, go directly to the service department. There is definitely something wrong with the passenger seat. If it can't be re-calibrated they...

Good points. If engine sound is a determining factor in decision making the 2014 and later models seem to be the way to go with the N20. I don't think they at all sound like the N52 which had a...

I get what you are saying but the N20 is a sweet engine. Only at idle can you tell it's a 4 cylinder. And the N52 I6 I owned did not sound great at idle. The reality is that other than Infiniti...

Yes and no. First of all the 328i RWD is $37500.00 which is considerably less than $40K. Power memory seats are standard and it has nicer trim. The sweet spot for the 320i as we know is the great...

Not sure what you are expecting. Stopping distances are not ultimately determined by brake force. There is a maximum hydraulic pressure that can be applied and I'm guessing that's what DBC gives you....

But at what cost? Getting 300K out of a modern turbocharged engine with a lot of electronic controls is going to get pricey. Diesel's are simpler with fewer parts.

I'm sorry to hear of your experience but for most the reality is BMW fixed the HPFP issue years ago and the other issues are long gone as well. BMW mayhave been slow to react but they have done so.

In terms of how we talk about monthly payments $475.00 is the right number not $419.00. And you put down $2500.00 plus other up front costs. Assuming a 3 year lease, the $2500.00 comes to...
