True, but that's an expensive insurance policy against a loss that most probably can absorb. Kind of like buying an extended warranty at Best Buy.

Plus your insurance settlement should include...

Same experience here. Mostly noise, very little cooling.

If it is already very hot in the interior, they're almost counterproductive as they seem to blow the heat from the seats themselves.

In that situation, the sales tax credit is only good to you. The dealer can't pocket it. I suppose they could take advantage of someone unaware of the sales tax rules.....e.g. you offer $xx,000...

There have been instances of reduced yellow-light timing to increase citations. Scam.

Interesting. This question comes up from time to time, but you have a real data point.

Have you had direct experience with this? Seems at a minimum, there would be credit for sales tax already paid to CA, or the taxes would be based on the value at lease transfer/import to Texas.

Until you're at the end of the lease, you're stuck with the current lease payoff amount unless you find someone to assume it.

It came out mid 2014 model year. Early 2014s don't have it. I think July 1st 2014 was the switchover.

I haven't noticed any. The suspension is firm enough so that there is ambient road noise/feedback to perhaps mask a small vibration issue. Not a problem for me, although others have complained of...

An in-stock deal can close immediately (a bird-in-the-hand, if you will). On an ordered car, you maybe put down a deposit, and there's always a risk that the deal falls through before it's delivered.

OK, that makes more sense. Unpaid tolls can accrue to a large amount and I'm guessing would ultimately be the responsibility of the registered owner (BMWNA, in the case of a lease).

Looks nice. I had the same observation about the stock setup - just too much overhang on the fenders.

I added spacers (15mm in rear, 12.5 in front) as well. I also increased the profile of the...

That still seems like too long. Assuming you walked away from the drop off with a signed inspection form, what else is there for BMWFS to review or verify, and how long should that take??
