Car did it's job - looks like the doors still open.

Good tip on diminished value - gotta get something for the depreciation if it's written off.

It means anything but northern Europe, essentially. All US cars are hot climate. Bigger radiators, condensors, fans I believe.

Oh, I can agree with you. But people - including my wife - just want certain options. There are more reasons than power that people buy 328i rather than 320i. Besides, we can drive the 4.5...

This has been argued before: the 328i and 328d come with things standard that are not on a 320i. Also, there are options that are simply not available on the 320i.

Not sure where Tim is coming from, as it's possible AFAIK.

Probably not very cost-effectively, however. I looked into adding Bluetooth back when I had my '01 330xi - mostly the same thing.

+
Taking off your summer tires/wheels does allow a good examination of the tires for uneven wear, which might lead one to get an alignment, but otherwise, no alignment is necessary.

Totally, completely, politically OT

That's a succinct summation of the attitudes of much of the rest of the world towards the West (or US.)

My mistake - I was thinking 328i vs. 328d, forgot we were talking 320i. Just to be clear, however, to get to $50K in a 320i you'd probably be adding the features standard on the 328 trim level, so...
