Having been fed up driving a 10 year old Odyssey while my 2012 328i is being put back together at the body shop, I took some time to go test drive a Chevy SS to get a feel for what I might get next....

Those only work if you are paying attention to them ;). To my wife's defense, backing out of our garage is a beeping frenzy so it's not strange she ignores the beeps.

Luckily, we are able to make the insurance claim... Two collision deductibles cuz we can't pay liability to ourselves, but one ding in her driving record.

Yes, I'm fully aware that a Chevy SS is a buy proposition, and, very likely, a close to msrp buy. Still a fantastic value for what you get.

rear brake pads

That is true, unless BMW is paying for it! I never got new rotors on free maintenance plan :/

rear brake pads

It's normal with newer BMWs to wear out the rear pads before the front pads, due to the DSC.

DTC & DSC issues "Help"

Throttle goes back to comfort mode... Doesn't affect actual power... You just need to give it a little more to get the result you want.

If you start in sport mode then hold DSC until it is off, your car goes into comfort mode with all driving aids off, but the steering should stay stiffer... Go figure :P

Lease Return - RFT Tire Cost

If my memory serves me, the price depended on the size of the wheel... It's not the price of a replacement tire, but a set fee from BMW financial services. You can always call them and ask. In 2009...

Lease return question

Unless terms have changed since 2009, that shouldn't be a charge. If you can, go inspect at another dealer. It sounds like a money grab.

2014 328xi sport wagon vs. GT

I came to an F30 from an E61 N54 and I'm completely happy with the turbo 4. In the lighter car, it's plenty fast. My only regret is not waiting for the GT, but that will be on my short list in 2015....

F30 reliability?

I'm at 14000 miles on my 2012 328i and the only issue I've had is one check engine light that was fixed with a known service bulletin. So far so good!

MY FIRST CAR!! CPO Z4 vs New 3 series?? PLEASE HELP!

Insurance for new drivers is expensive no matter what, but insurance for a two seater coupe or vert is at the top of the scale... I'd check insurance costs before committing!
