There must be a reason why this car isn't at a BMW dealer. Executive cars usually go to dealer-only auctions. Maybe not really an executive car? Or maybe had enough damage that a BMW dealer...

I'd like to get the updated maps for my wife's 2009 335i. She still has the originals. Is there a way to verify that the car has the other updates needed? Thanks!

Mine complains in fog or sunlight glare (early morning sunrise, sometimes also some moisture on the windshield.) Since its just a camera, makes sense.

205/50R13 will fit on the stock rims. This was a popular upgrade when these cars were more common.

Update 4/24: Perhaps it was 205/60R13. Been 15 years since I had the car, and an old brain.
