Noobie_8, as a CPO with extended warranty the price isn't bad, as long as the dealer is reputable and maintenance records look good I'd consider it. They should fix the window rattle. I have a 2010 128i M-Sport and it is a joy riding to and from work or on a road trip. No problems, no window rattle, seats are great for a long road trip too. I have a 6 speed manual, highly recommended.

The n52 128i is definately fun in the commute if you keep the gears longers, reliable when maintained.

The muffler might cut out some high rasp noise that I have. But honestly don't know.

I'll try to get a better video this weekend when we do practice starts for the Pro Solo. It gets good when it's ran out thru second gear

Me, too. BTW- where did you score the CF kidney grilles, and how do you like the hood? I assume it's a 3dDesign?

Hey hey, the CF grills were AutoTecknic CF Grills. The Hood is M3 iCarbon from way back in 2009-2010 era.

I recently got hit and run and will not be trying out Modbargin CF grills as it needs to be replaced.

Hope this helps. Most carbon hoods are kinda dangerous past 130-140km per hr. Hence why I got the hood pins.
