I have 20% all around and I love it. If anything I would go darker, not lighter. No vision problems at night.

Yeah my tint could stand to be a tad darker during the day but man at night it's perfecto!

So is anyone here F1 fans besides me?

Called the dealer twice today, two voicemails, no return phone call....

I usually watch all the races and then read up news on the F1.com site. I'm glad Hamilton won the drivers championship this year.

This past year was exceptional drama too. I love F1, pinnacle of racing and it is nice to see where some of this auto tech spawns from. The races are nothing short of amazing in person. I went to the last race at Indy they held.

yay! BMW called me back this morning, I talked to Tonya, she seemed really nice and said I could swing by and get my oil topped off. Sweeeeeet! Contrary to my bitter venting posts it doesn't take much to make me happy when something goes good.

on the F1 note... there is nothing more sick sounding than being 15 ft away from an F1 car blazing down the back straight at Indy's infield.

race. Could have taken a radiator lol

Hmm, so are they giving the oil top-off for free? When mine said it was a quart low and I went by, they told me the warranty doesn't cover additional oil needed in between oil changes, and made me buy the quart myself. Let me know if you get it for free.

I would assume so. BMWNA told me if the light comes on they are required to add oil for free since it falls under the maintenance free program but to just top it off before the light comes on isn't required but up to the dealer if they wish to do so. If they try to charge me I'll just wait until the light comes on out of spite.

I spoke with Tonya, I used a little sugar. I have a wedding to attend today so I will probably have to wait until Monday or Tuesday to swing by.
