I'm not finding low-miles-with-everything cars in my price range, so the one I'm looking at is pretty basic -- manual seats, no iDrive, etc. But it's still a great driver's car! And there are a couple of things I like about it, so I think I'll live with the compromise. I've gone for years without iDrive. ;-)

Yeah, I kind of would prefer better phone integration -- cars with "Apple Carplay" are particularly impressive. But, I can do fine with my phone, if I can find a mount for it, and buy the $75 cable from BMW or whatever I need to do streaming audio. (I've been reading past messages to try to see what I'm getting into...)

Are y'all suggesting CPO just to be sure that it's been pre-inspected? Supposedly, it does go through such a process. I'm not so sure I want the extended warranty -- I haven't read that these cars are that problematic, but there are always risks with a used car.
