I do not have any child seats in my 2016 X3 and just received the letter. I plan to ignore this. I even hope that the dealership does not bring it up when I take it for service late this year. ...

Your configuration looks similar to my 2016 except the exterior color. I think 2-3 weeks is very doable on delivery. My vehicle was 19 days from order to delivery. The X3 is built in SC not in...

Good point! Doing the math, comparing my residual to today's residuals would have resulted in an $83/month increase to my payment if the residuals were as low as they are now. Assuming I did not...

Wait a minute. 52% residual on a 3 year/12k lease? That cannot be right can it? Are residuals that bad on the 2017's right now? The other numbers look very good. Except you did not break down...

By $1,000 dealer profit you mean $1000 over invoice? If so, I would think there would be dealers that would be very happy with that. You do realize that "invoice" is not a measure of profit to the...

That is certainly true. But since you are not under warranty, start looking for an indy mechanic with a good rep. that can do an engine swap for you. Even if it is a used engine.
