Worse shifting after manual transmission fluid change

I have a 2008 e93 with about 54k miles. It was at the dealer getting the air bag recall (finally!) and heater connector recall. While it was there I thought I'd take advantage of the fall service...

That's what I figured. I'll have to see if the local dealer has any cars in that color.

Looks like Audi's CPO warranty was just changed to 1 year unlimited miles

Looks like the low interest rates for CPO 3-series has ended?

Seemed like there was always a "finance special" interest rate for CPO 3-series but no more. Anyone know of current rates thru BMWFS?

Anyone have any recent dealings with Paul Miller BMW?

They seem to have pretty good asking prices on their CPO cars.

I'm in the same boat. 95% of the cpos in the northeast are x-drive and very few have the dhp. To make it that much harder the car has to be a 6MT. If I can't find one with dhp I plan on adding...
