3-second signal is great, if the lane change cannot be done in 3 seconds(e.g. others won't let you change lane and such) then there will be no confusion. One of the most dangerous situation is when...

The N20/N26 engine bay is relatively spacious compared to N55. Also the I4's do not seem to run as hot as I6's, so there may be some reliability benefits too(e.g. plastic parts can last longer).

Is the engine breather the PCV valve? On E39 the PCV replacement requires 4 hours of labor, the E90/F30 integrated PCV to valve cover is relative simple fix.

It depends on how much is made on the new lease, e.g. if 50% off is on a $5k tire and wheel insurance that is still lots of profits to cover the lease return. Or the new lease may have markups on MF...

As far as 6 months of pull ahead, my understanding is that the amount of depreciation paid in the first 30 months does align with the 30-month residuals from BMWFS. In other words, by returning the...

A quick way to check for SULEV is to open the hood and look for a label that says the radiator is DOR and is part of emission system. If that label is present the car is SULEV.
