I always review both before AND afterward -- usually as soon as I get home. If there's an error, which is rare, might still be an opportunity to fix it. That said, I am pretty careful too, and I've...

Correcting MPG Readout

I cross posted this in the F10 forum.

I've determined that my MPG readout is 3% optimistic, which isn't bad but I'd still like to correct it. Is there any way to recalibrate the readout without...

Correcting MPG Readout

After calculating my fuel economy with two gas station fill ups, I determined that my instrument gauge is over-reading by 3%. Is there any way I can adjust the gauge myself? I know with prior BMWs,...

The issue the dealer will raise is the legality of the lease agreement and unless the court is willing to set the civil code, the dealer will most likely win. The dealer will not hesitate to appear...

You make no sense. The guy is going to look foolish trying to explain to a judge why the written lease document that he willingly signed should be set aside -- three years later.

I have sympathy for your situation, but I'm curious how this fact got past you when you signed the agreement, or in the days following when you had a chance to review the document? Was there any...

The center headrest came out. Work it vigorously from side to side and it will slide out. Still if you're putting an infant seat in that location, you do sacrifice the LATCH anchors.

My comment was really intended to address over zealousness on these forums, like you'd be an idiot for EVER putting anything down on a lease. Yes, it's free insurance so in most cases it makes sense...

Will, we all agree that GAP insurance applies in both financing and leasing transactions. The opportunity the OP is addressing is to make maximum use of that insurance by minimizing the downpayment.

Will, I think that is what they're talking about here -- the risk that some of the cap reduction is lost.

To this discussion, I will add that an insurance company should give you enough money to purchase another car of the same specification and age. Thus, if your 6-month old 335i is totaled, you should...

Is 6WB all that worthwhile? The visuals look a little cartoonish and I wondered if it's just a gadget item you quickly get over.

No I'm not. It's an engine that lacks the refinement and character of an equivalently powered 6 cylinder engine. The people who can't tell it's a 4 also don't know what refinement and character...

I just respectfully disagree.

I've driven the car, and yes, it is fast but the engine lacks refinement. To me, a car at this price should not have a four cylinder engine. It's not the power,...

Why won't you order? Yes, Mocha is tough to get otherwise, but it is really nice compared to Dakota.

I'll wager that Comfort seats come standard on M Sport and no-cost Nappa becomes a cost item.

Thanks for the link. I see that others have experience the same issue. I used my phone to shin a light in the rearview mirror and the side mirrors did darken, so I think all is okay.
