Joe is right. There was nothing ever found wrong with the Toyotas nor the Audis accused of sudden acceleration back in the late 80s. To some degree, the GM switch thing was blown out of proportion....

The CP for BMW is almost pure profit. There's nothing on it that the "base" Ms don't have. Stiffer springs cost the same. The engine tune is just software. The wheels had to be tooled, but...

You can disagree, but I'm going with the Order Guide and the OP over the website. It's clear to me in the OP's picture that he has full leather IP.

The battery is in the trunk, but there are charging/jumping terminals under the hood. Just look for the big red and black caps on the passenger side.
