Ventilated Seats - I haven't made an extensive comparison, but I think the ventilated seats have a thinner cushion than the ones with ventilation. At least that's the way it is on my ventilated F10...

If you have the A/C in the AUTO mode, the A/C will always turn on after car shut down and restart even if you manually turn the A/C off first. If you don't have it in AUTO, it will not.

Excellent choices. My options are the same except I have X35i and the following:

There is nothing wrong with a November 2010 build. It's the pre-September 2010 builds that you should be wary of. However, a 550 without a warranty is a potential money sink. Fuel injectors were a...

I would get the multi-contour, but not the ventilated. It's only $50 extra, but my perception is that the ventilated is less comfortable. The extra adjustments on multi-contour vs. sport are well...

It is called "4NB 4-zone automatic climate control". It was offered as a standalone in 2011 and not offered since. However, you could order it even though it was not offered in the ordering guide.

You should be able to get a 2015 for $500-1000 over invoice before the discounts. I would think a demo 2014 would be at least a few $1000 under invoice. In the long run you're better off buying a...

Have you had the VANOS replaced under the recall? If not, it seems to me it could cause similar symptoms. I would also think the dealer would have spotted that right off the bat.
