New Preferred Plus Owner

Picked up a new preferred plus a month ago and wanted to introduce myself. It joined my '22 BMW M4 that I also have in the stable.

I ordered the M4 in January 2022 and took delivery April 2022 thinking it would be my daily. However, it does not come with a spare tire or run flats and I ended up getting stuck 400 miles from home waiting for a tire replacement on one of my last road trips.

Alas 2 weeks after that trip I picked up the Preferred Plus at my local Mazda dealer. I always wanted a small SUV anyway!

The BMW community on the forums is a very large and helpful one. If this community grows to even be a fraction of that one then we'll all be in good hands.

So far I'm enjoying the new ride. Only annoyances so far are the dreaded panoramic roof rattle and exterior B pillar trim alignment. Only logged 1100 miles but just got back from an 800 mile round trip on Sunday and it was flawless.

Looking forward to getting to know several of you. I have an extensive background in the automotive industry and general engineering and am currently an engineering manager for an aerospace company.

Welcome aboard, and as a forum user you are probably aware that most posts can be perceived as bitching about problems. Knock on wood our four Mazdas in the last couple of years have been excellent.
Long term reliability is the unknown for us now.
Time will tell.
Btw for your M4 you could get a roof rack a strap a spare up there for a true hillbilly look.🤣
