I'm pretty sure that MT will be with two pedals. More than likely, your 2023 BMW won't be internal combustion anyway.

Some states are different than ours. I would check.

In most cases, the lease works out better unless the residual is unusually low.

I do as you do -- look at the screen then turn and look out the rear window. I'd much rather just turn around and see everything at the same time. I see people backing up using their only mirrors...

My last loaner, also a 2015, had the same sport mode choices, but I don't know that the car had DHP. The ride wasn't noticeably different, either way. Can you confirm how yours is spec'd?

I have M-Sport and frankly I think it's inconsistent with the F10. If I had to do it over, I'd probably get one of the other packages and inquire if I could special order the 704 suspension. I once...

I've got both after using PDC by itself for years. The camera is valuable for seeing what's going on behind. But it also requires you to look forward rather than rearward to view it. It would be...

Bump. I spoke to a BMW Genius today and they said that Apple's podcast app is not officially supported. Does anyone have direct knowledge of this, and can confirm either way?

When I set off on this journey, which point on the list do I select -- Dennys or Las Vegas? When I stop at Dennys, will the nav automatically select and navigate to the second destination?

You are responsible for any state and local taxes assessed on the car. However, BMWFS sometimes makes mistakes and you should verify if the tax applies to the period you actually leased the car.

One nice little thing is that I've got a soft key programmed to provide the locations and prices of nearby diesel stations. It's quite a nice feature.

You did well on your 535i. I'm not saying the leasing is always better, but I do believe that BMW builds heavy financial incentives into the 5 Series residuals.

If you got 50% of MSRP after 4 years, you did well. I'm assuming, though, that you sold privately.
