I've had bits go bad -- first, the gear selector switch failed almost as soon as I drove it off the lot (and I test drove it, too :/ ), then about a year later the hydro pump was found to be leaking....

Can't say I'd get the brown, but I would die for that deep blue/purply color on the individual site, in either leather or Alcantara. And I LOVE the color accent on the bottom of the steering wheel.

My M3 cleared the VPC (Oxnard) on Oct 29th, in only one day.

It does not have the moonroof.

Yep, it's the nature of LCD screens. When very cold, they will be blank or very "washed out" until the ambient temperature rises to something more reasonable. If you have a cell phone (or calculator,...

I've got the GPS V, the little cousin of the SPIII. It behaves much the same, only it's much smaller (can easily be used as a general-purpose GPS out of the car) and has a B&W screen. It's also less...
