Isn't the fuel used to cool the fuel pump? If so then it's possible the lack of fuel caused it to over heat and fail.

You're whining about something that's a non-issue. You were sold a 225kW car with the understanding it was rated at 225kW. The fact it could easily be increased to 250kW is irrelevant. You got what...

We don't know why it was detuned (or even if it was instead of just not tuned to full potential). What we do know is BMW markets the car as a 300+ HP/torque car and that's what BMW delivers. You got...

Without commenting on the validity of this statement I haven't seen a lot of posts here about problems with the AWD system. IMO the reliability of the AWD system shouldn't be a concern.

Yes, ask if you can get it inspected. Stay away from any seller who refuses to let you have the vehicle inspected. I understand if they're hesitant to do so until they're confident you're serious....

The aftermarket "improve gas mileage" is a myth. If there were something the aftermarket guys could do to increase gas mileage you can bet the manufacturer would be doing it.
