I'm not sure that extended maintenance plans are worth it. BMWs recommended service is just enough to get it through the warranty.

A smarter plan is to join the BMW Car Club of America for 3...

I had ventilated seats on an '05 Lexus that worked pretty well. I had them on my '11 535i and they didn't work well at all.

I'd think you'd need new seats with ventilation built in.

I don't intend to try this on my F30. However, I did something really stupid in my '95 Suburban years ago. I was coming down a mountan road I thought I was in 3rd (for the engine braking) but was...

I thought they drove it over!

Seriously, I don't know if they need to recharge batteries at the Port. I can't do that at the airport.

Still, I guess I don't need to worry.

Will my F30 survive an 11 day vacation?

It'll be parked for that time. It's a '14, 8k miles, warm climate, so the battery shouldn't be too worn out.

In the past I've always kept my BMW at home on a battery tender when going away for...

If you swap the seats for 'non-sport,' won't you have to swap back when you turn in the lease (or get hit for lowering the value of the car since sport seats are an extra cost option)?

That really looks nice. It's interesting that it has 22 miles and is listed as used. It calls it a demo but at 22 miles, it hasn't demo'd much.

Hey... NUMMI had a stelar reputation by the end. They were the best Toyota manufacturing plant in the world in terms of quality. I know some of their former workers are at Tesla.
