We've also got a letter for our '13. I didn't even know such car seats (with rails that go in) existed. The proposed fix sounds kind of scary, some reinforcing bracket to be welded to the body? Not...

Well, that's true and they certainly have no trouble selling the F30s, for instance. But at least with the new 3 series you still have a RWD based platform. With F48, that's not the case, and the...

Are you getting the leather, if so, there is no "net decrease". The warranty is the same, but the maintenance is reduced by 1 year, and what's included in that is reduced.

I thought the hazard warranty on Pirelli, is one year or within the first 2/32 of the wear, after that prorated. For your case, it really doesn't matter since only 1500 miles.

The leather ($1450) is not standard. So it is more like $750 of extra equipment for $850 unless I'm missing something.

Yes, the new one is xdrive only. It is FWD based, and the power can go to the rear wheels "when necessary" (slip detected and such). Which in my mind makes it inferior to the previous platform.
