Life Cycle Impulse -- i.e., the LED tail lights that came with '10+ models. The below image states they came starting in 2011, but that is incorrect.



And for the E90s:

Deets on the car in question? Price? Previous owners?

Looks like it's been lowered. Any other mods?

Fully loaded, not sure about mods though it looks lowered and has side mirror covers in the photo (hopefully OEM carbon).. carbon interior. Asking $39k which by Canadian standards is a great price given we barely have any inventory here and base 08's with higher mileage are on corner lots for $45k.

I've wanted a 997 forever but the deals that you guys have in the States are simply not available in Canada. 05's with IMS issues are going for nearly $50k. No thanks. M3 looks to be the right move.

What part of the country are you in, Bawlin?

I have to say, there are better values out there in E92s than an 08 with 60k at $39...

Westcoast Canada. This one is as good as it gets. 45k on the odometer (miles; 70,000km).

all rook same. Hehehe.

MB did some stuff I really liked in the presentation and experience, ended up really liking the ML350 so we went with that. I didn't want to get something she would wind up disliking after a year or two.

Bought this one. Pick it up in a week. Jaguars are the least practical cars ever - high depreciation, questionable reliability, and yet I keep buying them

Not much at all.  Probably doesn't make sense getting the extended warranty since it is 6 years or 100,000 miles.  But then again you might luck out and find out it was initially sold late in the season or even the next model year so you might get a year and change of (limited) coverage.  That being said get ready to replace that waterpump in the next 10-15k miles.  Those things fail like clockwork.  Almost 400 beans for the pump and another 80 or so for the thermostat from Tischer.

That's another part of the beauty of leasing. If you end up disliking it in a couple of years, well, it's almost time to hand the car back in. Congrats on the ML and I'm sure you guys will love it. Both of Mrs. Piob's were solid vehicles and she was not against going back. I just could not pass up the 40% savings vs. the F-sport and I also figure the MB guys were getting a little complacent as that would have made our fifth MB in a row. I want them on their toes for m upcoming GL renewal this year.

Thanks Pio, how do you like the GL.
post #12476 of 13579
My reply to you is going to get me mocked (again).

I love my GL. It's simply the best all purpose vehicle I've had and this is my second one.
post #12477 of 13579
Driving a truck spoiled me, I got back into a car and hated it so next time I buy something for myself it will be truck-ish. GL is on my radar.

I'd say questionable quality from what I've seen at least. I like the looks of the Jags, but the 1 year old XK that I looked at already had both door handles extremely loose and falling off on the inside.

2 series is up on bmwusa.com. The "M235i" naming convention is interesting. I understood why they did it with the 1 (the M1), but why not just name this one M2 or 235i? It's also interesting that the 2 series (also the 4) is taller than the 6 series despite being almost 20 inches shorter in overall length.
post #12480 of 13579
The 1M was a true M-division car, whereas the M235i isn't, which is why it's not called the M2.

Not surprised about the height either to be honest. The 1-series had a obnoxiously high glasshouse and that design trait seemed to carry over to the 2-series.
