I know very well how every aspect of how that system works. It is inferior to other good systems out there. I can point to very specific issues that it does poorly. I will post these in another...

The parts supplier is not the only deciding factor on how the car drives. It's the interaction of the parts and how they are designed and adjusted. There is no reason why BMW can't make a true...

The problem is so do a lot of other makes. BMW used to have an edge in driving enjoyment but that is lost. The F30 is undoubtedly more comfortable (for the most part) than the E90 but the driving...

I do blame myself believe me. Also, I will say it's difficult to gauge the HVAC as far as cooling goes in November/Feb in Vermont. :) Heating mode works great and I have no complaints. Also,...

Yes it works. Yes it gets cold but it doesn't work as well, no. Compared to the E90 I never had to touch the thing. Set it at 70 and was perfectly comfortable. This car I am constantly adjusting....

If I take the hit and give up $4k on trade, or dump $4k into the upgrades the money is still lost. Same difference to me. It's not like I am going to get any credit for the upgrades on lease turn...

I can't imagine suffering with our crappy HVAC system in 116 degree weather It's supposed to be 90 today and this system can barley keep up IMO. :eek: Hopefully you have window tint.

I wasn't able to negotiate mine one bit. Dealer charged me around $1k for CPO on top of residual I believe. I was under in my mileage by a large amount as well.

Well we have a clear consensus that I am screwed. I'll stick with the car, put on better tires and try to live with it for 2+ more years. :(

Make sure you test drive the 3 series for a long time. If you are getting Xdrive and non-adaptive I can't imagine it will be anymore exciting than your Accord honestly.

What?? I get loaners all the time. I had a I3, 535d, 340, X3. Loaners are a non-issue.... if you purchased the car from them that is.
