Well we live up on a hill and come down that hill every day, so it doesn't totally surprise me. Plus my wife (who drives the car most often) is a hard braker. She won't admit it, but I know she is. I tend to coast the hill, and I think she rides the brake on the hill.
I don't totally buy what the dealership tells me on brakes, and I definitely won't buy it at their outrageous prices. But given where we live now (my Sequoia has burned through some brakes but it's a bigger vehicle), I think it's time I learn how to do this stuff.
Again, I have the Bentley book (seems real simple in the book for many things). Also, I bought a Peake Research R5 FCX II scan/reset tool.
As you can imagine given the vehicle has so few miles I don't expect much to go wrong, but I want to start doing the easy stuff (oil/brakes/etc).
Finally, I did call BMW about the issues that all went wrong. Not sure they're going to do anything about it, but maybe they'll pick up the cost of the seat belt latch. That's a really bad thing to go out after very little use.
