Anyone have problems with the washer fluid sprayers? Mine just stopped working suddenly on the road. It started with only 1 working and then neither.

I'm just assuming maybe they're partly frozen because I had washer fluid in there rated for only down to -30C (and in reality they actually may not be), and it was -24C today not yet factoring in windchill. Or something is clogged in there.

Put car inside the garage to thaw out (to some extent) and check to see if the washer fluid is flowing again

Your car doesn't care about the windchill.

If you're keeping it for a long time I would. Chipped CF isn't easy to repair.

BMW.ca does not allow me to build and price a 2018 BMW X1. Anyone know of a website where I can build with options and price out a 2018 BMW X1? I tried unhaggle.ca, but it was was difficult in selecting and deselecting options.

Also, if I really want a display on the main dashboard to be touchscreen, what package would include this: premium package essential or enhanced?

Is there way to get the premium essential with a touchscreen?

Unless I'm wrong the X1 does not come with a touchscreen. Its just the regular idrive.

$600 to wrap it. I will keep the car until warranty expires - end of 2020 (3 more years).
My goal is to do buy a 991 GTS in 2019. I've got about half of it saved so far Face With Tears Of Joy

Nice lol

My dream would be to have a 991.2 C4S as my daily and keep the GT3 as my toy.

Yeah, I noticed that the X1 is missing for some reason. Note that you cannot get the touchscreen with the Premium Essential package.

factory likely have put in summer grade washer fluid into the car ... what about trying to use hair dryer to heat the tube under the hood to see if the line is frozen at that point.

Does BMW sandbag their residuals? On autotrader, it seems like they sell for more than what their residuals show as.
Most manufacturers do... that's how they make money. A lot of CPOs are former leases
