1) Porsche 911 on bucket list
2) 650 too big for my tastes
3) Add a quart of oil popped up every 2,500 miles
4) Read some threads you guys posted about engine malfunctions and I'm not having that.

I like BSD but there are many ways it could be better implemented. Lane departure is just a slight vibration in the steering wheel which is fine and if you don't like it turn it you can turn it off.

I have had to add a quart at 2,500, 5,000, and 7,000 miles. I'm a conservative driver generally but I do floor it in sport mode occasionally.

No, you can specify whether you want to include runflats, exclude runflats, or show only runflats. When you search by vehicle it shows everything. Try it.
