Most of the ones on the CPO site are either 320s, have black interiors, or are SULEV vehicles, and I've read about the significantly higher repair costs (fuel pump et al.) on the latter models. ...

As it happened, yes, I did take the X3 home on Tuesday evening. The dealer didn't have anything I liked in my price range; all the '16 and '17 328 F30s were either more expensive than I liked, or...

I'm off to the dealer this afternoon; the sales manager says he has a number of cars that fit my requirements coming in soon, and he can show me the list. I'll grab my remaining possessions from my...

The saga continues --

The dealer was nice enough to give me a loaner, an X3, last week. Saturday I got to the dealer, and the service manager and my service advisor were not in. "Since nobody has...

Folks, it looks like Prog. is only now getting around to totaling the car!

A chirpy little lady at the dealer called me yesterday, asking if I had thought about replacing my car. I went,...

Oh, I'm enjoying the vehicle, and I'm more than glad to have it. I plan to pay for a regular oil change (ca. $120) at the dealer in appreciation, as they will probably have saved me more than that...

Update, all,

The F30 is still in the hospital; the carpets took longer to come in to the dealer than they thought. However, I came out and asked the service advisor if I could get a loaner, and...

But you brought the topics up, and so I was covering them in one post -- not because I thought they were connected.

Actually they are sort of connected. I know the car will have diminished value,...

Does my policy have to state specifically that such a claim is possible? And would I just request it of the company?

I suppose it will. I've asked to be sure.

If I sell the car in the next few years to a private individual, I'll give him all the records of what was done, so he'll know it wasn't immersed in...

Just heard from Flo's people . . .

They say the car isn't totaled, and that $5100 is the estimate. I'd pay my deductible, and the rest would be their responsibility. I asked for an itemized list...

"Fair market value in immediate pre-loss condition," hey? That was definitely excellent condition. Take my deductible off the top, and after I pay off the loan, I would be okay.

Flooded! And off to the Car Hospital

Last Wednesday I parked near my work on a street which rarely floods, or so I thought. Buckets of rain came down, and my campus closed. I waited another hour to be sure the water levels were down....

Ah, I wish I had space to keep such tools and to do oil changes and tire rotations! What I'll do in future is check the tire pressure. If any of them need pumping up, then I'll plug in the unit,...
