When I drove an '77 E21 in the early 80's, EVERY other BMW coming down the road would double flash 'hello', no matter the model. Been a long while since anyone has done so. I think the common-ness,...

If you're okay having a giant BMW written across it, the dealer has one. If like me you're not cool with that, you'll have to buy generic. I wish someone made a custom fit one that wasn't branded.

We now lock it every time we leave it, even in our locked garage. We also take care if we're both carrying a key to make sure the non-locker is a sufficient distance before locking. Annoying, and I...

Alternatively if you rotate your head a few degrees (5-10) you'll be able to see it with polarized lenses. I'm not suggesting driving around at an angle, but when I was to check what's on it, a tilt...

Took me 4 months to find a non-black interior 535i XDrive (was also looking for 2012 - 2014, early this spring). I'm in Michigan, and ended up having to drive 4 hours to buy a car. Keep the faith!

BMW SA "Yeah, the freon just evaporates every 3 years, you don't have a leak."

I was confronted with this idiocy yesterday. They seemed to try and explain it like it was a "feature" so I wouldn't have old freon in my system. I'm continually amazed at how bad the service is at...

That sucks, sorry to hear about that.

I think if I re-ordered the same car I'd be expecting some free options to be thrown my way.

New to this like you, but IIRC the added torque of chip mods generally exceeds the engineered design of the tranny in the 535. The diesel can handle it I think, but the 535 doesn't have as much...
