K&N is one of the greatest snake oil stories in modern history. Cold air intakes are the second. Manufacturers spend millions of dollars trying to get more horsepower and better mileage, and if...

These Internet forums are a great place for info, but as others have mentioned, not every "great deal" that is posted is totally factual and complete. No one (well, few of us...) want to admit that...

I feel for the OP. However I can't help but look at it from the dealership's perspective. They had no idea that the op did this - they thought that BMW made a mistake, it's a relatively new car, why...

I'd recommend that you stay away from any modified car and find something nicer with fewer miles. There are literally thousands of cars for sale, don't get hung up on that one just because it's...

@amancuso is correct. You need to step-up to Xenon or LED lights on BMWs for the self-leveling and other cute features.

I'm not going to argue the reliability point, but you will never sell me on the idea that a Kia is going to drive better than a BMW. Any BMW.

And one could make a good argument for longevity...

Glad to hear that the nightmare is over, although at a significant cost to you. Sometimes it's worth it to just be rid of the headache. Best of luck with the Audi.

Why wait? I had 300 miles on my tires when I swapped them for conventionals. Sure, the dealer will be thrilled at lease end because they won't have to buy new tires, but I'll have an extra year or...

Like others have said, you better be getting a super good price on a high mileage car like this.

Now, that aside, a whole bunch of miles in a short period of time implies highway use, which is the...

I had the 19" GYS AS RF when I got my car last month, and instantly hated them. If you liked them, then get them again. I went with conventional AS Pirelli tires, quieter and a bit softer riding,...

I don't understand why no spare is holding you back, @Autoputzer. That's the exception, not the rule these days. You can get a spare with jack and tools from BMW for a few hundred bucks. Sure, it...

My two cents:

- I've had a lot of BMWs. Some were dead solid perfect. Others were maintenance nightmares. It's a crapshoot. It's a love/hate thing for me.

Does this mean that you are paying $5000 down? And is that $649 for 36 months?

FS: Carbon Black touch-up paint

As others mentioned, it's up to the individual dealer. Nowhere does BMW promise you a loaner on any repairs, warranty, recall or otherwise.

A dealer will buy it. They generally don't care, they just look for accident damage.



Good luck with that, it sounds like probably your best alternative.

Yeah, be careful using harsh cleaners, they may remove the beige as well as the blue.
