False, Not sure why there is comparison between the 2 brand.

It's called a loyalty credit for a reason...

Thanks booblehead for the attractive video. I checked a few sites (Bimmerfest and 2addicts) out and found out the 2 Series is one of the more reliable models (maybe except for the 2014 debut model) and one of the most fun the drive in the BMW lineup except for the complaint about the lack of steering feel, which was present on the 1 Series with hydraulic power steering (didn't know those can hit MPG by 5%).

If you are going to spend like mid $40's + taxes, why don't you consider of getting a 330 instead ? (slightly more comfortable and there is a base $1750 factory credit in December, perhaps, a bit more factory bonus credit just prior to X'mas). As for the engine, the current 2L engine seems to be okay and I have not seen any major issues thus far.alanbrenton wrote: ↑Dec 2nd, 2017 1:31 pmThanks booblehead for the attractive video.

Too bad most of the used ones probably do not come with ACC and on bmw.ca, the build product page talks about adaptive cruise control and dynamic cruise control. I thought the terms were used interchangeably but maybe not in Stuttgart.
Also learned about the N55 vs B58 on the 235 and 240.
Would you have any opinion on the base engine on the 228 and 230 and how reliable are they? Not interested in tracking the car, just my household expenses.
What are the things to watch out for on a used 2 Series? Can I buy extended warranty from BMW Canada as long as the vehicle is within the 4 year/80k limit?
The 228i can run on 89 too but that's midgrade in Canada.

Thanks! So does it really matter if I go with 18" x 7.5" or 19" x 8"? Are both standard sizes?booblehead wrote: ↑Dec 2nd, 2017 4:14 pm^ strictly a personal preference on wheel size and style.
same goes for winter set where you want to get, obviously, aftermarket would be cheaper and much more choices (wheel style and winter tires) to choose from. However, if you shop the winter set around the winter season is over, then dealers are willing to discount the factory set prices more easily, probably 15-20% off the MSRP.
Current dealer's offering
17" Double Spoke 564
Pirelli® Sottozero Winter 3 RSC, Run-flat Tires 225/55 R17 97H
Labour and installation costs are extra
18" Double Spoke 570M
Continental® WinterContact TS 830 P SSR, Run-flat Tires 225/50 R18 95H
Labour and installation costs are extra.
In general, dealer markup on winter package is around 30-35% on average for the non M series.
