I guess it bothers me to pay slightly under RV for a 3 year old car with 65,000 miles. I knew when I took the new job that I would have to pay the excess mileage fee but the thought of the dealer...

About 29,000 over the lease allowance. If I buy the car at residual plus tax it's more than the KBB private sale price plus the penalty (at 18 cents/mile bought before lease end). They do not charge...

Except the new A5 looks like the old one. Audi design is very conservative.

It's possible that one of the parking lights is about to fail. If you are under warranty let your dealer look at it. I had this issue and they ended up replacing one of the bulbs.

I don't find the body roll to be an issue, there's not that much and the level of grip is quite high. The steering precision is ok except on center but there's the feel and feedback is AWOL.

I would call BMW a luxury brand. In marketing terms there's no doubt of that.

BMW is a luxury brand. No question. Luxury is about prestige and a BMW is way more prestigious than a Toyota.

As far as the Premium Package, I agree with you. The quantitative luxury in a 3 series...

Are the 911 rear seats really habitable? If you really need rear seats and want a truly sporty car, the E9X M3 is a great choice. The F80 is also great but reports say it's a bit more of a track car...

Really nice. It's a far more distinctive, upscale and luxurious look than the current designs.

I'm just saying as are others that this is a very minor issue. I can't say that this has ever bothered me for more than 2 seconds.

If you press it once after a period your car will completely turn off. If you lock the doors it will shut down the car. You will never run down the battery due to the push button ignition.

There is no IS-F in the current product line. There is an IS F Sport which is like the MSport version of the 3 series.

I'm with Sunny. I can live with the suspension to get the steering but the impacts on potholes are enough to loosen fillings. 2011's are better but not close to the F30. My F30 with 18" wheels and...

Don't do it if you value driving dynamics. I'd love to find a low mileage 2011 with sport suspension. Mine could be either a 328 or 335 but would have to have a 6MT to make me happy.

I advise you to do research on mixing tires. It can be very dangerous. Different construction, different tread design, etc is a bad idea.

I assumed he is talking about a leased car but I could be wrong as he used the term trade up. But if he's getting a new car after 3 years it could be a lease.
