I can tell the electric steering vs hydraulic. Electric many times has a big dead spot in the center.

I agree. But there are only 100 cars for the entire USA.

Sometimes if that's the only person with the car you (sort of) want, do you walk on principle, or try and get the deal done? It comes...

Isn't auction sold "as is"? My car had a bubble on one RFT and one tire was non-RFT. I paid lease end charges. It was $400 a tire (20s). The other 2 tires were at the minimum tread allowed.

On a perfect road, you won't notice any ride difference between RFT and non-RFT. It's only when you get rough where it makes a difference. If 90% are good highways, I would do 20". Even 20" with...

Not necessarily. I've sold 4 leases, all with Max MSDs, and have them all paid to me up front. As long as you make it known, price your lease accordingly, it's often not that big an issue.

Are you leasing a deal or the car? The i8 is a comparatively bad car to lease. A good lease, as a general rule of thumb (my thumb), is with max MSDs, around 1% of MSRP per month. So on a $150K...

It says "leaking". I personally have never carried a leaking case of beer, a jug of washer fluid, a six pack of pepsi in the trunk.

Perhaps BMW designed it to not be watertight? For ventilation. Electronics get hot. They didn't want to use fans. Where else can you put it?

That is why they have insurance. I'm with the majority view on responsibility. The battery is located in the trunk in some models, so apart from the damage, it could create a dangerous situation.

If you're running tires for 6 months or more, I would recommend new. For a few months before sale, or lease return, I would buy and take the risk on used.
