I also have the 2016. It's my first car with a DCT. I think it's great. The shifting is so fast and pretty smooth. The only time it isn't totally smooth is at low speeds, like stop and go traffic....

I don't have an answer for you, but I think the camera on my 2016 ILX is just average. It's the same one as that 2018 you drove. You should check out BMW's cameras. They are one of the best. So crisp...

The antenna mast simply screws off. A new one probably isn't that expensive. I wouldn't have thought a broken antenna would affect the stereo like that. I would have expected the radio reception to...

I do the same thing!

Also, if you do close the door from the inside, make sure to grab the handle from the bottom, not the top. The top is known to be a weak point and it may rip off over time.

Seems pretty reliable to me! the "not original" items you mention are wear items and thus, get worn out. I would, however, use 91+ octane gas because that's what the manual recommends.
