Sounds to me your wife is quite canny. She claims she doesn't like the color, making you think she won't drive it much, and then takes it over when you buy it.

If a car is problematic, BMW will sometimes do a buy back even if the issue doesn't fall strictly under your state's lemon law. So that's an option, although fully at BMW NA's discretion. Another one...

It's the seatbelt fastener on the floor in the back of the E92 that causes the difference.

Attempting to retrofit an alarm and remote starter is a recurring question, and the the advice ranges from "it can't be done" to "it will be really expensive." BMW used to prewire the innards for an...

When the seat in our Volvo got uncomfortably hot, that was the signal it was about to fail (no heat).

Ultimately it's your car, so do what makes you happy. However, I think it would be OTT (over the top). Actually, I think BMW overdoes it. I have the M Sport package and there are M logos everywhere....

I'd say 1-2 PSI in two months is normal. Outside temperature can make a big difference. When you go into fall, and the outside temp is 50F instead of 70F, you'll notice a PSI drop. Check your tire...

I have Sport seats in both my 2010 535 wagon and 2011 335 coupe, so not the F30 series. However, I expect BMW's thinking remains the same. The 335's seat bolsters are more noticeable than the 535. My...

Yes, they actually changed the shock design in 2011. The ride isn't as smooth as the current F32, but it's better than earlier E92s. The LCI for the coupe (what I'm talking about) was in 2011; the...

In town I'll get maybe 23 mpg; on the highway, around 27-28 mpg. The best I've ever done is 30 mpg. The only time I'm in Sport mode is when I'm merging onto the highway.

Are those spec'ed for xDrive? I'm just asking because the xDrive and non-xDrive suspensions are slightly different.

That's what I did with my 535 (Ultimate Mats from Bavarian Autosport) and it works very well. The black mats look classy without making the interior too busy.

On the E92 LCI, BMW switched to much cleaner brake pads. I have virtually no brake dust. Maybe BMW continued that with the F30.
