Mine are on a lot too during the day, and there's no pattern I can identify.

I figure since they're a cool $1,900, might as well show them off. :supdude:

You really should look at modifying the driveway. It sounds like the worst option, but it seems to me the most realistic/useful.

The letters fell off of my old car as well.

SAT for the shift settings and much nicer looking shifter is worth every penny. Having had two cars with SATs, a no-SAT car would be a deal breaker for me.

Honestly, I would not get an early 2011. There is a huge used market for the 5-series, so finding 2012+ is stupid simple and it is likely to prevent a lot of problems for you.

I don't smoke in the car and have above average personal hygiene, so I've never found a need for a car air freshener.

Most people say "this still smells new" even after a year or two.
