It would be a nice option to have, to drive to Italy. But yeah I wonder about risking snow. It would obviously slow down the days I'd allocate to the trip. Plus chains and salt on the road can't...

I have to say, if Tesla delivers their $40k car with 200 mile range in a couple of years, BMW will have to step up their game.

Or maybe a chance for the dealer to cross-sell you on other services.

Heard many say you don't want to own a BMW out of warranty because of the prohibitive cost of repairs, like high 4-figure bills.

That would be the reason for turning over on a lease.

Ah too bad.

Looks like you have to consider the coupes for the more streamlined design.

No chance the coupes skipped the run flats right?
