2012 sedan is an F30 chassis. From the OP's description it sounds as if he's looking at F30's. The E9x doesn't have a screen if it lacks navigation.

Might want to try using ozone. You can rent ozone generators. Ozone tends to destroy odors instead of masking them.

Because it's a mechanical device and as such things break. That's why you have a warranty.

And what happens when vehicles begin to move from gas to electricity? Demand for electricity rises and therefore the cost of electricity is likely to increase along with it.

Yes, but his point remains valid. Always consult the paperwork for the specifics of the model and year you're purchasing. Do not take anyone's word for it.

It's my opinion the suspension on the E9x series cars is the problem. While moving to a non-RFT can improve the comfort any such gain is only minimal.

Congratulations! It appears to be a good outcome to a bad situation. I definitely agree with giving positive feedback to those who deserve it and constructive feedback to those who didn't.
