      Interesting the 3 year warranty they provide starts the day the car was originally purchased not when you bought their parts. If you bought their parts with 37k miles on your car I think this means...

      Exactly, was never intended to allow you to increase boost pressure and have VW engineers required to "prove" this caused your problem.

      I agree completely that it was dumb to remove it and am happy that my BMW is old enough to still have a dipstick but this has nothing to do with how reliable the car is unless the system fails at...

      And the odds are neither car will have a high dollar repair in the time period that most people own a car when they buy it new.

      Actually no -

      Invest $30k, then $30 a month instead of insurance and maintenance on the car ($360 a year) and get a return of 6% over 27 years and end up with $175k. Mediocre, not great,...

      What's the point of keeping both convertibles and trying to keep the miles off the e30? You want two Summer only BMW convertibles?

      Doesn't someone end up owning every car that comes off lease? I don't see BMW's being much cheaper on the used market than other cars in their initial price range.
