Lease is a form of financing with a balloon at the end. Anything you finance needs to be negotiated. I would not focus on monthly payment but rather total cost. Failure to do so could mean you leased...

Did the dealer check alignment and provide results or are they guessing that you need an alignment?

I don't think the dealer is offering the BMW warranty and maintenance. It is only offered to original owners unless they changed something. Do you know what they are offering?

I still don't get it. If the car is on a rack/lift, gravity causes gas to spill down, not up. So to me it does not matter if the tank is full or not. :dunno:

Sounds like you guys should have gotten cars with manual trannys if performance is paramount. You would have bypassed all the nanny modes.

So you only want to use 7 gears of the 8 speed tranny? Your fuel economy will suffer especially on the highway.

I think if you press and hold the volume knob for 10 seconds iDrive will reboot. It was that way on my 5 series so I assume it is the same.

If that does not work you need to take it in.

I can only speak to the MPPK.

Perhaps the best option available for the 435.

Off the mark throttle response, additional HP, and exhaust sound takes sport mode to a whole new level. :thumbup:

I would take it back and also ask to speak to the BMW NA rep.

There is something clearly defective and might need the entire steering rack replaced.

I would not live with it.
