I ordered all seasons on mine and they came with Pirelli P7 Cinturatos. They aren't too bad considering they are an all-season RFT, but I'll be replacing them with the non RFT Conti DWS's soon.

DIY: $60-$70 for all 6 plugs. Aside of that you just need a socket wrench with some extenders and a torque wrench. So even if you didn't have any of the tools, you're probably talking no more than...

I declined mine - reason being, if you don't get an extra brake job after the factory warranty expires, but before you hit 100k/6 years, then you've overpaid.

Assuming you drive less than 25k per...

2011 550 trade in

If you need the space stick with the GT, otherwise if you want something with a bit more style (but still very practical as it has a hatch) then go with the GC.

With the M sport package, either...

I'd shoot for one just off a 3 year lease as it will be a decent amount less expensive than one that is only a couple years old. You'll also have a year or so of the original warranty - so if...

Definitely take a test drive. I came from an E60 (5 series) so the 4 was a little smaller, but still plenty big for my tastes (I'm 5'10). The roof line is definitely a bit more snug, however most of...

The anti-theft alarm has another valuable use. If someone were to break into your house while you were home, you could use the panic button to try and scare them away.

Perhaps slight contact between the pad and rotor on the right side would cause left wheel to ever so slightly rotate faster than the right wheel - hence the pull to the right.

We had a pretty good variety during our driving, but the artists that made up the majority of the playlist were ATB, Coldplay, Empire of the Sun, and U2. Plenty of other singles here and there.

Is there not any paperwork that explicitly states if current lease payments are covered under the program? I always thought it typically covered up to 6 months of payments.

Yes, the 3 and 4 series have similar, but different rear m sport bumper covers. The diffuser on the 4 has an extra little detail on the far edges.

When we took ED last September the discount was 5% for coach, 10% business, and 15% for first class. None are even close to the old deal where a companion flew for free.

With a $500 deductible, this is definitely an insurance claim. If you carried rental reimbursement that's all you should be out.
