I had a 2011 328 (E90), and now I have a 2013 335 (F30). Both cars are xDrive, and MT.

My average MPG in the 328, over 3 years and 40,000 miles of driving, was about 22.3.

I enjoy European cars and the engineering that comes with them. That's an expensive habit, and it has no free cure.

Cars cost money. As BJ said above "a car's a gallon of milk". There's no free...

I live in a cold, snowy place. I have a 335i xDrive with a manual transmission and DHP. I love this car.

It's been bulletproof through a very snowy winter. Awesome all the time.

I have a 335i MT (with xDrive). Love the MT - the AT is great, but the third pedal offers a better connection with the driving experience that I would hate to give up.

You can do the same with an RFT. If it has a hole that was fixable on a regular tire, you can plug and patch it in the same way.

I had this done last year on my factory RFTs - went to a local gas...

This is my second 3-series with xDrive, and I love it. I've seen plenty of snow this winter, and my car's Pirelli A/S tires handle great, even better than the Continental A/S on my 2011 E90 328xi.

This is not correct.

XDrive vehicles are not raised. They're simply not lowered.

The maximum factory lowering of your car is 10mm. Just to be clear, that's approximately 0.4 inches. On a car...

I've never used RainX and I have this problem all the time. If someone's telling you it's RainX, they're telling you they don't want the problem fixed.

I've got nothing like this with my 335i. Smooth all the way at 10k miles, never been any other way.

BTW, Pirelli has a road hazard warranty on these tires, and I think it's 100% of replacement cost for the first 12 months. Check their website ... which appears to be down at this very moment.

Interesting, that must be the case with the new Nav. My ED earlier this year on a 2013 with the CIC Nav had the maps loaded in, and my car has two USB ports, one in the dash and one in the armrest.

I'm having the same exact problem - and it's annoyingly intermittent. I often get the low windshield washer fluid warning a day after I fill the reservoir, when I have barely used any.
