The problems are as follows compressor rattles dealer all cars of this nature have this .. Ii read the blogs, 2nd needs motor mounts though not a hard job I was told all BMWs do this too much toque ( gee isn't that what motor mounts absorb)? we have the Financing but dealer is reluctant to repair the car before i walk our with it. I( advised him of motor mounts earlier and to check if not replace the ac compressor. needless to say I have not done the pressure checks. the rest of the Vehicle looks good paint shiny brakes good engine sounds strong no leaks . But i noticed running hot also if you guys say go ahead fixable for a reasonable price by dealership before i take it off lot. as of now they have nothing on me. I have put nothing down at all. Some minor cosmetic flaws cup holders but electronics working drives well. car has a 1 month guarantee on all but i don't want to move it into my garage unless it's as near to perfect as possible other wise i walk.
