Looking for past owner

I am closing a deal on a CPO 2010 328i xDrive Sports Wagon M/T! from Park Shore BMW in North Vancouver. It was a lease and currently has 25k. Space Grey - Dakoto Black - Premium Package/ Premium Sound (no Nav, Sport but NOT an M ). It just hit the lot and was posted on BMW CPO without pictures. I called the SA and we Facetimed a "test drive" (I live in Ontario). Not 5 minutes into it I gave him my CC and he printed Sold on a sheet of paper and stuck it under the wiper. It's been off the lot getting the polish and prep and I haven't even got a picture of it yet!

They are putting it on a train (probably the 23rd). I guess they only leave on Tuesdays and it probably wont be ready this week. We just faxed all the signed paperwork yestarday.

I was wondering if anyone knew the PO (is it you?). Maybe I'm nieve to think that a city the size of Vancouver wouldn't be overrun with E91's, I live in a small town and you don't see alot. Anyway this is my first BMW car (I owner a 71' two-wheeler several years ago). I have been drooling over an E91 and just found myself in the right possition when the right one came popping up on the screen. I can't tell you how excited my wife is that I have this forum because she is sick of me talking about this car. Some people just don't get it. So, I'll go ahead and welcome myself to the group! If you'll have me or come hell or high water!

Acceleration is fun, and pretty stable while cutting corner with high speed (thanks for the xDrive)

$10 every 60km, is that reasonable? Premium gas 91..

However, I got a battery recall from the dealership on next Wednesday, any idea how many days gonna take? Cause I don't live in Vancouver

I also notice my left headlight is lower than the right one, they said they will take a look next Wednesday ..

(Can tell a big different while driving at night)
I got the power-train warranty, hope its covered

Its about there. My 328i RWD was about 550km+ per tank for around $86 Chevron 91 or 94. And yours is xdrive, so it`s fair. My current 335 is about 450km per tank around $90 chevron 94. (while gas price raising like rocket in Vancouver....)

Battery Recall should be done within 2 or 3 hrs. So you should plan something to do during the wait. Vancouver Bimmer dealers should have the shuttle service, just tell them what you need. Brianjessel BMW have free Breakfast/Lunch voucher as well.

For the headlight, it is like that: Driver side is lower than passenger side. They designed this to prevent blinding the incoming car with your headlight during night time. You can adjust it yourself too if you really want them even.

Good luck on next Wed!

Hey guys,
I've been in Vancouver for almost 3 weeks now and am loving it.

I have a question to ask that I do need help with.
How much am I expecting for a monthly utility, cable and internet bill? A condo I am looking at tonight won't have either as it is brand new...
