CPO is overrated? Geez, I hope not TOO overrated..! I'm in Ontario and just bought a CPO car in Newfoundland! I'm flying out next week to pick it up and drive it home. Yes, that is about 3,100km. I'm calling it the Honeymoon.
I test drove several similar vehicles nearby to ensure the planned purchase would have the "feel" I wanted, but this will be (finally) my first BMW (2008 328xi E91 AT) since I started drooling over the 633 CSi in the 80's. Coincidentally this is also my first post to these forums.
Thanks for some great contributions throughout, especially in the DIY section.
I've been reading posts for hours, since yesterday.
Thank you to all the contributors.
