I used to have an F10 and then went to E92 m3 then to F32 435. I do not need 4 doors, but I love my car. I think you would be quite happy with a 435 GC since you do not need the large backseat. The 4...

Yep. The last time I purchased a TW policy was when it could get it for 350 bucks. Ever since then it has been near 1000 bucks and I pass.

Engine Replacement on Leased BMW

Very funny GB. On a serious note, trousers seem to grab cloth seats in a way that jeans and khakis don't. Do you have any experience with trousers or do you roll without pants 100% of the time.
