Great point. I don't plan power upgrades on mine. What I also learned is that manual transmission cars are more prone to this issue. How true is that, I don't know.

These cars use a lot of battery juice. I wonder why the dash lights (and some other interior lights) stay on for a while after car is turned off? My other car is an MB SL. On that car, interior...

Ofcourse, why not? 20K/year is hardly a "daily driver" in my book. My daily commute is ~90K. I just got a M3 C and the plan is to have her on that road as many days as I can. I bought the car to...

Thanks. My all-weather mats are from McNeil and I really like them. I guess what I need to do is just get rid of the OEM mats (I have the McNeils on the OEM mats) and just stay with the McNeils. ...

Thinking of it, this is not a personal vehicle. So, I may be able to go OEM and use insurance. But, will insurance agree to OEM? I'll call them to find out.

@bmwx5er
No HUD, just the rain sensor. I just heard back from my local BMW - $ 1,475. It looks like the aftermarket will do just fine.
