You will find your answer by sifting the sands of forum discourse. Read, JJ, read! Use intelligence in your search.....seek out those few, those very few, who have asked this question before, and recently.

Mayhap you will find a thread containing the info you seek. Good luck to you in your search!

However, and IMHO, you have picked the wrong car. You are best suited for a hybrid capable of very high fuel mileage....you should buy: TOYTOA PRIUS. With Japanese reliability and fuel efficiency no BMW can match, at a price you can afford, it is the answer to the issue of a commute. Afforded special status in some states, you may be issued a no-charge 'FastPass' for tolls and be allowed to use the carpool lane as a single occupant! Why, 20% of new car purchases in Berkeley, CA alone are Prius and it is Toyota's top seller!

Could millions of Prius pilots, lining their pockets with big fuel savings, be wrong? I think not. Now that you know what to do, keep us posted. Better, start a blog! Post its URL here.

Considering the fact that there are several computers in these cars - engine ECU, a/c, transmission (if it's an auto), navigation, ABS/DSC, etc., it would be nice to know WHICH computer you expect to have trouble with.

If the nav screen or nav computer goes out, it's big bucks; maybe that's what you heard about.
