Hey, I posted this in a thread over at the regular 1er forums, figured this was probably a better place to ask -

I beg to differ. This point was explicitly made last time I was looking into this. The issue has more to do with the throttle than anything else if I recall correctly. The factory settings have a...

Dinan Performance?

Hi, so I haven't logged in here for 6+ months. I was moved across the country by my job and the economy kind of put any BMW plans I may have had on hold for a bit.

One thing I was interested in...

ED Allocations for the 1er?

Hey all,

I just moved across the country, so I've been out of the internet-loop for awhile. Has there been any news on ED allocations for the 1er moving forward? Picking up a 135 would be a lot...

I think it doesn't make sense to ditch a car that new. I am assuming you bought it new and financed it (ie it's not a lease). Only 13k miles in two years? Was this a lease return or something?

Ditto. The metallic paint is a profit point, and at <$500, most people aren't going to balk at it. With margins already razor-thin, according to the dealers, they're going to throw all the little...

First, let me say that this isn't a personal attack. An attack on your perspective, maybe. I will begin by pointing out - there is no accounting for taste. I'm not sure what you have against a car...

I disagree. Just not a fan of the C-class styling (or most mercs for that matter). But then again, I seem to be in the minority as I actually like the lines of the 1er.
