Sure, I try to be gracious.

Yeah, the guy really followed me home. With his wife as a passenger. I saw him about a mile from my house, and he pulled in and stopped right behind me. I thought I...

I have a bike, but nobody seems to comment on a manly looking fat guy on a bike. They do clear a path, though.

I think getting approached by strangers is creepy. I even had one follow me home. ...

I went pretty basic with my M235i. Estoril, heated seats and black leather, auto tranny. One year later, I'd do it again. Actually, I might opt for boring old alpine white instead. I've probably...

The recall letters are supposed to go out starting April 30.

Your dealer might know whether your pump is affected.

Fuel pump recall

Two weeks ago I was trundling down the road at around 50 MPH in my 2014 M235i, when she started coughing and stalled out, with some random warnings flashed on the display (which disappeared). The...

What Zooks said.

There's no real reason to play coy with a dealer. There are lots of BMW ED sales, it's a common practice.

I wouldn't start off negotiating price. Just let the dealer know...

I feel your pain.

I try to amuse myself with acceleration, rather than speed. On the highway, I just set the cruise control and forget it. Around town I try not to go more than about 5 MPH over,...

I'd replace it. If there are hairline cracks, eventually water will get in and those hairlines will become something more. I had a 2005 325i that had this happen, and in a year's time some...

I just sold my 2011 123d. It was white with black (leather) interior. It is a great looking combination. And the seats never got particularly hot.

I'm currently waiting delivery of my M235i. I...

A bit.

Base price - $39,700
B45 - $550
LCSW - $1,450
ZCW - 550
Freight - $925

Plus BMW added a 2,000 euro discount because of my boyish good looks. So altogether about $5,000 off MSRP.

Just ordered - M235i

To replace my trusty, loyal 123D.

Estoril blue, black leather, cold weather.
