This isn't the same thing but active seats really work for me. I always had low back pain ( except in my 911 ) if I drove quite a while until I got active seats.

The main thing you get is the extended warranty. I think it would be OK if the price is right. leasing is the way to go as the residuals, at least on new, are ridiculously high.

Anyone hearing whistling noise from driver's side mirror ?

I am and using painters tape I have it isolated to the drivers side mirror. My car has the carbon fiber caps. They replaced the cf on that mirror because it was not installed correctly.

If true, which I doubt, the reason would be that BMWFS has your MSDs to deduct any end of lease charges like wear and tear or excess mileage. They like that.

1) The lag is probably turbo lag on the 135 not a DCT problem.
