The E70 board has many avid diesel fans. I don't recall seeing anything about carbon build up issues there, but I see it all the time here for the 335d. There seems to be a clear difference despite...

PM me if you need more info, but I live in SF and always use dealers outside of the city to purchase. BMW SF has a good service department but never buy a car from them if you value money or time.

A misfire and engine malfunction code isn't normal. It could be a minor issue, but there is an issue there. Keep us posted on what happens when it resurfaces.

Won't opine on the single vs twin turbo, but I love my E70 35d (twin). I also live in California, and finding fuel is a non-issue...especially when it is only every 600 miles or so. I have owned it...

My first Bimmer had Sports seats. My wife hated riding in them, and I splurged for MC in the next two. It was a huge improvement, and it is literally the only feature she insists on when we get a...

19 months and 19 miles for me with no issues. I did just start noticing a passenger door rattle (slight), but it is otherwise rock solid. The minimal smell of diesel exhaust does bit bother me in...

Don't lock the keys in the woods - they won't remote-unlock

Locked m keys in the cargo area three times, so I definitely happens.

I am happy with my E70, but I am not being biased when I say the front of the new model is jacked. It looks exaggerated and out of place. I bought my E70 knowing that I would not be on the market...

Maxi Cosi makes a good compact car seat and works well with many strollers, but the kids will outgrow it in less than 2 years. Britax Marathon and Fronteir are both excellent, but they are large!

If it really is $29K to repair, which sounds high based on these photos, it is probably going on carfax and there is a whole lot of damage in addition to "plastic parts". This is just opinion, but...

Hmmm. Not that you asked this, but I would max out your 401K. If you are only putting $10K, then you aren't maxing out. I was once in a somewhat similar situation as you, and I regret not saving...

Disagree on selling the car unless you need to. I sold my E46 when we first bought our home, because I knew I needed to in order to afford it. The car has probably already lost close to $10K since...

I'm arguably biased, but I think it is kind of jacked up looking. Hopefully, they fix it for the LCI refresh around the time I will be looking for something new.
