It appears it was a change in BMW Policy. They no longer transfer the $0 maintenance when car changes owners? They actually quoted me a $700 fee to "reinstate" it. I asked them to include it as...

And no regrets?

I'm comparing a 2014 E250 BT with 42k miles, well equipped, with a 2016 328D with 20k miles, well equipped. Same price.

The 328D is CPO, comes with full warranty, 4 years 50k...

I see that gap from new to about 8k miles. I am assuming it was under BMW control?

Why would it be at an auction at that young age?

I'm wondering if BMW may not...

Cpo 2016 328d

Guys, in my search for a possible replacement to my 335D, I've toyed with the E250BT but feel it is just too large of a car, like the 5 series. Not really what I want.

So now I'm back to the 328D...

Just saying that a BMW 328d at $50k with 4 years 50k miles vs a MB C300d (if they had one) for $55k plus another $4-$5k for 4 years of service, the BMW is looking a bit more competitive.

Maybe it...

IMJTM,

You may be right. I really have never experimented with the DTC (or is it DSC) button on the center dash. Pushing it in deactivates it, yes. I may have misstated prior. Typically pushing...

I have RWD, with slightly wider rears at 255 or 265. I'll play with it a bit more but I could definitely feel the power being cut back when DTC was on.

I just lived with it.

No more!
