I'm torn - LeMans / Novillo Red Extended or Space Grey / Novillo Red Extended? Thoughts? How does the "superman" look in person, or 2 years later?

When were you making that purchase Scott?

Service is finally scheduled for next tuesday. I just bought the car in May with 47k on it and have no idea what services were done on it prior. I am hoping everything was done by BMW by their schedule but you never know. I thought to be on the safe side I would get the coolant flushed besides the oil change. I have been reading that a lot of guys service the AWD differentials at 50k so I was thinking about that as well. What have you guys done or recommend? Any idea what kind of cost to have that all done? Is there a standard oil you use for the N52 or will the dealer try to upsell because I am new?

Have a great day!

There is only one type of oil for each part, so there is no upsell there for you. When I purchased my 330xi I had many fluids changed, nothing that BMW says needs to be done, but I just did for peace of mind. I had the front and rear differentials, and the transfer case fluid changed. As well as the engine coolant, power steering fluid, and transmission fluid. It wasnt cheap, but well worth it IMO if you are keeping the car for a long time.

Why?

Need to sell more cars? Training? Just wanted to stare at ///M cars? Delivering a car? Finishing a deal? Cleaning the bathrooms? Someone's birthday party? Doing driftos around the round-a-bout?

A little bit off all of those, except the cleaning of the bathrooms

There is a company that is ordering ~10 550xis from me, they wanted me to bring the car by their work for two hours. I figured I would meet their expectations

That is cool...

You should have a new display every week...///M cars...red/white/blue...SAVs...cool stuff to keep the lot interesting. Although the location you have is tough for that. Not a ton of traffic. BMW dealerships are a destination business...not a traffic business (like a used car lot).

Think I learned that from Mr. Tobin...the King of Cars. "always keep the point (edge of lot) snappy"
