Sold my Boxster. Going to look at 1.9 Z3. What should I look for?

Where does the "Manual" vs "Presets" show up? Is it one of the options that shows up left or right of AM/FM? For instance, "SCN" (scan) shows up to the right.

Reprogramming the Steering Wheel Buttons?

Can the steering wheel buttons be reprogrammed for a different use? I just finished a 4K mile vacation trip in our 09 328i SportWagon. What a great touring car! The quietness is almost spooky. During...

My dealer parts guy said his one customer returned his nosemask because he couldn't secure it to the fender wells on the side. This didn't make any sense. How does the think secure itself on the side?

Front Wheel Bearings - Are they known for going bad?

Turns out that I was remembering this from a Volvo V70 we were looking at as an alternative to the BMW Sport Wagon. SAT does not show up as an input choice.

What to look for in 2006 Station Wagon?

I'm looking at a 2006 530Xi wagon tomorrow. Is this a good car or does it have some major issues I should be aware of. The price seems fairly low for such an expensive car with less than 50K miles.
