Does it have a man pedal?

If a DCT and if you're modifying, are you worried about the crank hub issue?

I have a torn meniscus that I can't get repaired due to other things going in life it is what it is so no.

I also got a bad ass warranty that mimics BMW's very own, 0 deductible etc...

It pays to have people have you back so to speak

Still jealous.

Don't twist my words ..one "hopefully" thinks if there are bugs by now they are resolved. I'm having Baron do a run through next week just CYA .. Plus the trunk latch isn't releasing so needs fixed.

outside of Lexus, I think most cars under $200k are within a stone's throw of each other

All most all of the interior parts in the M cars are shared with the more standard models. The biggest differences being the seats, steering wheel, the shift lever, and some trim finishes and use of matte finishes. The 2/3/4 series interiors aren't overly showy and are pretty basic for luxury cars. I actually prefer it. After owning my M235 for 2.5 years, I'm quite impressed with the overall quality of materials. The plastics throughout are robust and they don't scratch easily. Everything tends to fit really tight as well and nothing sounds hollow. My 2012 WRX was a rattle trap from nearly day one and drove me absolutely nuts. My M235 rarely makes a squeak. All doors close with the thud and open with a quality "pop".

Cars in general have made huge strides in interior quality, especially the Kia and Hyundai products. At the surface, their interiors are pretty impressive, especially on the cars that sell for $35K+, but if you're an interior whore, you can feel and hear a difference between a more standard offering compared to something German. The Germans can make things feel great, but their long-term engineering/quality is still lacking. As they continue to cram more tech into their cars, the worse it will get once your German car is 4+ years old.

Outside of boutique manufacturers like Lambo, Ferrari, and the really pricey stuff, nobody beats a Lexus on interior quality and longevity. My 01 GS430 was in amazing shape for a 17 year old car and was nicer than anything made today.

German interiors aren't awful, but typically are junk after a few years.

JDLM-these run mid 11s out of the box, right?

What's the plan for winter driving? I run Michelin Alpin PA4s on my stock rims. They're killer in the cold and the typical Kansas City snow.

I would agree, the older Lexus/Toyota offerings were pretty rock solid. I'm not sure I'd say the same about the some of the current Lexus stuff. I've ridden in a couple newer Lexus SUVs. They rattled quite badly from both the dash and hatch areas. It was quite surprising.

This is my first German car and I must say the wear, or lack there of, is impressive. I'm 2.5 years and 26K miles in and the door and interior panels don't have a single scuff. That's not to say that don't hit, but it apparently takes a lot to cause damage. All my prior Japanese cars would scuff quite easily. The leather is perfect. It's still tight and matte in finish. No major wrinkles. What I have noticed in my M235 is that most of the panels are a much harder and thicker plastic than what you see in domestic and Japanese cars. It's like a different type of plastic altogether. Panels are held in with metal clips rather than plastic clips and tabs. It makes me nervous when I pull a part the interior on my car as the plastic is so rigid that I think breaking the plastic would be pretty easy, especially if it's cold. Some black plastic parts are actually painted matte black. I could see that wearing away over time.

Without going into too much detail (because it's not going to be posted on here)

I'm not going to drive it, I have the option to work from home and or just take my wife's Jeep. (or if we have the WRX still)

It will all work out in the end. I am looking at different wheels but they will be Sprint/Summer wheels so I have some time before I have to pick them out. I have a small list going
