Have you ever visited NYC? It's ridiculous for cars. All the locals have bumpers peppered with "tap" marks. Many folks use those bumper pads to protect their vehicles. Nuts!

Please don't be offended, but if you do not already know what to look for your best bet might be to find a BMW independent mechanic and pay for a pre-purchase inspection. They can really help find...

Wow!, it's not even Throwback Thursday yet. I haven't heard that stores name in decades. Shows how old some of us really are. I suspect not many folks here will remember that one. Enjoy the new car!

Used parts are available, though may be hard to find. Check Turner Motorsport. They do lots of race preps, etc so they pull OEM parts out with owners consent, and resell them.

Oyster is an off-white. Tan is the lighter beige that many people have and looks very different in pictures, depending on lighting, exposure, etc. The next darkest, I believe, is Saddle, which is a...

Umm, unless CR is just totaling the number of responses without regard to the sample size, this makes no sense. Basic statistics here and I'm pretty sure CR has a grasp on that.

A decent indy can do that job for roughly $600-700. $1800 is ridiculous. Find a new service option and don't do this yourself unless you have a lot of experience and shop equipment.

Maybe it's time to try a different mechanic. Seriously, three times and they can't get it right? I hope they don't charge you for swapping parts that don't fix the problem. Good luck.

There's a classified section here on this forum. OEM 17" wheels would make a great winter tire choice. Might have more interest next fall.

The noise is possibly the bearings of the blower motor. Mine "whistled" while in use. Fairly common failure on these cars and not too bad for a repair ($$$). Good luck.
