Don't do it!!

Well, it's been about a month since I sold my E90 335 and every day I regret it more and more!

Despite the common issues and the high cost of repairs and maintenance... it's such an amazing car to drive... well worth it!

For those often frustrated, you never know what you have until it's gone. Just had to share.

The warranty starts at in service date. Just because its an 08 doesnt mean the warranty expires in 2012.

An 08 model easily could have been purchased in 2007.

The xi has "horrible steering feel". Brilliant statement. Guess you should tell Ferrari, Lamborghini, Porsche, and so on to discontinue making 4 wheel drive technology. Funny part is I bet you never even drove a xi. Of course you'll tell me you will to prove your point.

perhaps he means your specific xi model...

a lot of the suspension components between rwd and awd e9x are not interchangeable

I've driven / owned both rwd and awd e9x cars. Both cars were 2008s. Both cars felt identical. Why would you say it feels horrible?

Some 2008 models were manufactured in late 2007. The warranty starts not from the day the car was sold, but from the date the car was put "in service".

The in service date of my car was in Nov 2007. I have about 1.5 months of warranty remaining. The car has barely 25K miles!

Thats true.. My old 325 was born August 2005 so the warranty was up in 2009 even though she was a 2006

As far as I know all BMWs come with the factory warranty of 4yr/50k
