I should add that I've had a 320 for a couple of days as a loaner and there's no way I'd be happy going back into a 3er from an F07.

That's good stuff. You hit it on the head regarding which model would qualify as a F07 "junior". I thought the F34 with the 2.0 is woefully underpowered and a bit lacking in the appointments...

F36 v. F07

I got a brochure for the new 4 series Gran Coupe in the mail the other day. It looks like they took a lot of the great features of the F07 and packed them into the F36. I seem to remember one of the...

Got it. Thanks. Since the maintenance and factory warranty run concurrently, I wasn't sure which one covered brakes. I'm pretty sure extended BMW maintenance covers brakes/rotors but the extended BMW...

Jim...did you mean "full maintenance" rather than warranty? I didn't think brakes were covered under warranty. I know they weren't covered under the CPO warranty I had on my E46.

I guess my post was misleading. At 36k miles, the warning came on but the pads checked out ok. Sensor replaced. At 38k, warning came on again but the back pads had to be replaced. At 42k, the warning...

My sensor has bombed twice. The service indicator went off but when the tech pulled the wheel, there was more than enough pad left so they replaced the sensor. Now I'm right behind you in mileage...

Trunk lid latch failed over the winter. When they replaced it, they didn't replace the soft close mechanism for the trunk lid so I had the full slam effect. When they replaced the soft close, it made...

I wish the steering wheel would lift higher when I get out of the car. I like to set the seat pretty high. When I slide in (and am not careful), the steering wheel rubs against the front pocket of my...

I bought mine on Halloween three years ago. We had an early snow two days later and I still had my OEM Goodyears on the car. It was like driving a toboggan. Ordered a winter wheel and tire setup (17"...

Interesting. I extended my maintenance on my E46 and in retrospect, it was a bit of a waste. I decided to take what I would have spent to extend the maintenance on the F07 and get the Platinum...

I just called BMW Assist on this issue. The guy on the phone was responsive and said he'd elevate the issue. Here's my story. (http://www.bimmerfest.com/forums/showthread.php?p=8915548#post8915548)

I had one on my E46 and it did squat for resale value. I don't think they're worth it for more than peace of mind.

iDrive/Nav update?

While my F07 was in for the VANOS recall, I had a 2014 F30 for a couple of days as a loaner. I enjoyed the updated GUI for the Nav and SAT Radio.

Has anyone done an iDrive/Nav upgrade? If so, is...

Based on the sound, I'm thinking this problem isn't electrical. Might have some electrical fallout though.
