Other moments you may not be looking forward to in a very long term ownership:
- the moment iDrive ties itself in knots for the last time
- the moment BMW no longer provides map updates for the NAV
20 years from now, and untill the day I die I will drive a petrol car. Id pay as much as they ask me to for premium petrol. If its outlawed in the states ill move back to Trinidad and import an E90 M3 i will, if not, i have my E90 320i here already which will remain in prsitine condition. BMW will most likely have an automated system in their uplink servers to always be able to update the iDrive.... to think they would just stop one day is retarded.... computers are smart enough to keep updating and sorting the data. They will be using the same satellite technology so i see no reason for the updates to stop.

No Petrol - No Life.
