It says "leaking". I personally have never carried a leaking case of beer, a jug of washer fluid, a six pack of pepsi in the trunk.

Perhaps BMW designed it to not be watertight? For ventilation. Electronics get hot. They didn't want to use fans. Where else can you put it?

I would like it on a light colored car. On Black or blue, it just blends in.

Warning is also in the 2014 owner's manual:

Make sure that fluids do not leak into the

That is why they have insurance. I'm with the majority view on responsibility. The battery is located in the trunk in some models, so apart from the damage, it could create a dangerous situation.

If you're running tires for 6 months or more, I would recommend new. For a few months before sale, or lease return, I would buy and take the risk on used.

I actually think that you may not get much of a premium on the car. The reasons being that it is a unicorn, and because of the JB4 tune.

I like the RFTs on my 19s on my F10. I'm assuming the suspension was tuned to RFTs by BMW engineers rather than non-RFTs. I honestly don't have expertise to better them.

On my 20s with my F01, I...

Private sale or Carmax. Why would you want to trade it? Dealers won't want it, since they prefer selling new cars.

Why the joke? It is for the less rich. BMW has the Rolls Royce Ghost for those wealthier. It doesn't make sense to position the BMW as a Rolls competitor.

You may want to just try and sell the tires and keep the rims for winter use. The rims may be worth more that way than in a sale.
