Bosch cabin air filter from Amazon.com. $25.10 including free shipping. Autohaus part is cheaper but their shipping is crazy high. Next up, a battery at AutoZone.

Nice!

Note that the other piece of the lease equation is the residual, which may be significantly lower on the pre-owned and offsets the good money factor.

Not that you asked for my opinion,...

Why did you give up on the Audi's? I'm considering the A4 quattro as an alternative to the 3 series.

2 cents...

Ok... I don't have a 328xi, but I'm seriously considering it too. Past experience with BMW is what keeps me from pulling the trigger.

I've had the "bouncy tach" problem for years now on my '02 325 coupe. Has anyone tried videotaping the phenomenon? I'd love to get this fixed. Makes me hate my car in the winter.

I purchased my 325ci from VOB back in 2004. The car's been okay, but they were fishy from the start and it's not an experience I would repeat.

There is a certain irony in having someone who drives an $80,000 car talk about how okay it is to pay $10/gallon for gas.

With all due respect, my guess is that such a comment comes either...
