Call me dumb, but I'm at about 10k and expected my car to have told me to obtain service. I can't figure out how this is supposed to work. Should I have been prompted to get service yet? And, how...

I'm a new BMW owner entering my first Upper Midwest -Wisconsin- winter. Will I need snow tires? I need to drive in all but the lousiest weather. I have a new 2012 128i. Thanks.

Shopping in Munich

I found the Munich website ver helpful. I don't know if you'll find the info you're looking for there. Other good sites --none are great- are Trip Advisor and the German tourist site.

Does the Welt provide "green stickers?" Does BMW provide information about driving requirements, restrictions, and the like? Thanks
