Put the mirror switch toward the right side, it's kind of opposite what you'd think. In that position, the mirror won't drop down in reverse. I usually don't like it either, unless I am parking...

I've never seen Infiniti as a contender to match MB and BMW. it's just not there. Every time Infiniti pushes out a new model, "they" think it's great. I rarely saw an M, is the Q the new...

I would think normal maintenance guidelines would at least check, and probably replace the belt, long before 140000 miles. It's only rubber you know.

They have $7000 of the lessee's money throughout the lease period, not just at the end. They're getting interest on your money, rather than you are.

There's always that "rub". "It's just the same, except..." Lack of torque is a big deal.

Don't feel forced to buy an inventory unit. Order the colors and features YOU want, not what the dealer wants. Are you in a hurry? An oder takes about 7-8 weeks max.

You and I agree on many things here, but the seam on the handle, I just never noticed or felt it. I just went out to my '14 535i to feel it again. It's a smooth "line", I didn't measure, but I...

Finally refreshed my memory and looked at Monte Carlo blue online. Kind of bright for a 5-series, if that's the look you're after. Colors not offered are probably about $5-6K. Are you leasing? I...

I've had Cinnamon as well, with Black Sapphire. Cinnamon is quite a bit darker, and "redder", than Amaro, and may look better with SG than Amaro. I tend not to like silvers or mid-grays with beige...

+1. I have Amaro with Azurite Black. For Space Gray, Mocha may be a better combo. Amaro is an orangey-saddle, not sure how it looks with a mid-gray.

They need to call BMW tech and stop jerking you around. Bypass the front-end service advisor, speak to the service manager and demand they ask for assistance.

I think he means, assuming it's some defect with the steering pump or other related part, it's covered by the whole-car warranty for the 4-years, 50K miles.

Isn't steering a "closed" system? I don't think anything related to tire changing or alignment can result in the loss of power steering fluid.

All Individual interiors have black carpet and trim pieces. The "black" headliner is the normal Anthracite headliner, a woven fabric material, not Alcantara.

Pictures of Amaro Brown attached.
