You're an idiot because what car was photographed wasn't the point of my posting. I freely admit that I am unfamiliar with the 5/6 series BMWs. Perhaps you'd like to focus on some spelling / grammar...

I agree with this. Sounds like you have a defective unit which may be shorting positive to ground. You were wise not to leave it plugged in.

I freely admit I am not very familiar with the 5/6 series so I may have been fooled by the M badge on the back of the car (especially given the distance I was from it). With that said whether it's an...

Whoops...I think you're right. I misremembered it as an M5 for some reason. It has an M badge on it but too far away for me to read what it was. Got it in my head it was an M5 for some reason.

Unique M5

While this is not the M5 forum I thought participants in this forum would be interested in this M5 I saw over the weekend. Snapped a few pics before the light changed.

What you're referring to is the maintenance and not the warranty. This may sound pedantic but it is an important distinction given what paffinity mentioned about the MY2015 change.

Agreed as well as individual policies. That's why I take issue with his characterization of this being our first rodeo. I just went through this not one month ago.

Wrong. My vehicle insurance covers my vehicle and provides short term coverage on a new vehicle I've purchased. It does not provide coverage for a private party vehicle I want to test drive.

It seems those who advocate snow tires don't care about your situation. These people seem obsessed with ensuring you buy snow tires...even if you live in Arizona.
