Hope it is not totaled. Just drive the car for 12 months after getting it repaired, then return it and lease or buy a new vehicle

Check your lease contract for the residual value. then go to Carmax and get an appraisal. If the appraisal plus sales tax is close to the residual value it might be worth buying. I assume you do...

As a 1997 M3 sedan owner for the past 21 years I can say the car has been very reliable. Biggest issue I have had is replacement of 2 water pumps and radiators in almost 150K miles. Other than that I...

The dealership and salesman was right to walk away from the deal since you told them you were going to pay of the car in 4 months. The dealership can get in trouble with BMWFS if they know you are...

You are not taking into account that Autonation only holds the car for a month or two. A typical car buyer holds the note for 60 months. The dollar amounts of financing are vastly different. Also,...

I have not had any issues with the 19" wheels and tires. I believe this is more of a run-flat tire susceptibility. The concept of run-flats is great, but there are still drawbacks. If you get the...

Say NO to the 20" wheels on Atlanta roads. You will end up with damaged run-flat ties and bent rims. My wife managed to damage a 20" wheel while test driving a 650iX. She hit a pothole and a few...

You do NOT want to lease if you plan to pay off the car in 4 months. You would have to pay all the remaining payments plus the residual to get out of the lease. There might be a small discount...

You are absolutely correct. Nobody leases a car and then buys it out of lease 4 months later. You still have to pay the full cost of the lease contract, plus the residual. You end up paying all...

JB1 install in X4 M40i

Has anyone installed a JB1 in an X4 M40i? I have one I took off my 335iGT when it was turned in. Burger says it is compatible with my 2017 X4, but I can't figure out where to make both connections...

I thought all BMWs with non-runflats came with a BMW 'mobility kit', essentially an electric compressor and a can of fix-a-flat. There is an option for a spare tire as well.

Isn't your car still under the original BMW warranty as opposed to anything Carmax offers until 50K miles?

Having owned both a 550GT and now a 335iXGT, I can tell you I like the 335iXGT much better. The 550i did not have the M-adaptive suspension, so it floated so much I did not really like to drive it...

Thanks, Horn.

The quote from the website is specifically why I asked the question. It leads one to believe you need to use lowering springs. I can buy a complete B8 kit without lowering springs...

That sounds like a good idea. I think you will enjoy the 335i over the 328i. Keep in mind that the 2012 and newer cars come with the 8-speed automatic and can be equipped with sport transmission. ...

Cars that have been in accidents can not be certified. Also, didn't the 2011 335's suffer from the fuel pump problem that was fixed by 2013. I would go with the newer 328i with CPO warranty if you...
