    65k plus a bit, after daily driving it from June through this weekend. It's the most seat-time I've had in it since purchase. It was a blast!

    Sorry, but you need to learn to do the work on your car. I sold my wife's 2000 328i to the neighbor's 16 y/o son & he's read the Bentley manual & watched 50s Kid YouTube videos to work on it.

    Too bad they didn't spray the lower grille black or replace it while the bumper was being painted. Looks great otherwise.

    1 of 26 is fairly rare, to me. Mine is silver gray, the most common color, so it's good that I like it! My coupe's nearly at 65k after being my daily driver since June. Killing it's value!!

    You need to consider the mechanic's diagnostic or exam time/fee. Yes, it should be easy to replace an upper radiator hose, but finding the weak link in a cooling system can take a bit more digging. ...
