All this talk about expensive to own BMW

What about MB? Are they just as bad, better, or worse than BMW for repair expense?

Garage or Drive

Okay ...for all of us who live in a cold, snowy and slushy/salty winter area; do you garage it during the winter or drive it year round?

I have a MGB that sits close to the ground and I am able to unratchet the drain plug with a shallow bucket catching the oil. All this without jacking the car.
Can I do this with my 328xi?

Question Maybe a Dumb Tire Question

Can I top off my RF tires with plain old air from a compressor, or do I need a specialized product such as nitrogen?
Thanks

Battery question

I garage my 328 during the winter but take it out once a week when the weather permits. I hope this is sufficient for maintaining battery charge and other issues.
Seemed to work fine last winter.

Recall

Mine is a 2011 328xi with a manufacture date of December 2011. I have not received any notification and I forgot to ask when it was in for service a couple of months ago.
I guess I should call.
