I support any M items on a BMW as long as BMW makes their cut. That's the point of M proliferation isn't it?

Does anyone think this is a way to drive sales of hybrids, i3 and i8 cars? Since the usage of brakes and rotors of those cars (regenerative braking) is less?

I doubt it as well. ED makes up 2% of sales (less). And the others don't even offer maintenance.

I think this is a good thing. I'm realistic. I doubt anyone really believes "free maintenance" is really free. It's a cost that is passed on within the selling price.

How did you scrape it without it being visible? So if you brush the car with your jacket there is no charge. Obviously, anything invisible is not chargeable.

It's probably a good time to bump the mileage rate. It's been $0.20 for most BMW vehicles for at least 15 years from memory. Cars are much more expensive than then. More than 25% over the same...

I paid my TX tax personally when registering the car after PCD and getting home. In cash. But I think this is the exception, and they usually collect tax up front (also in cash).
