Titanium silver metallic
sport pkg
steptronic
cold weather
nav
premium sound
park assist
folding rear seats
anthacite

So far...it's awesome. Stiff ride but I'm coming off a 2003 325i so I'm sure I will get used to it. The torque is just awesome. :angel: I just love the stance of the 545i, it looks mean. THe stereo ROCKS. And i-drive, well I love it but my father would HATE it. I can't see how anyone under 50 could stand to use it IMHO. Pics will follow soon...

Got the .0010 money factor which is a great deal on the lease.

I see that you have a hardwired Valentine 1 in your E60. Do you know of any online instructions for doing this?

I did it on my 325i thanks to great online instructions and I'm hoping there are some for my new 545i! :)

Looks like we both got good deals...the way my calculations work, Shelly BMW either got ~$1500 profit with 0.0010 MF or ~$1000 profit with 0.0012 MF. I don't really care how they figure it as long as my down payment and my monthly lease payment work out to what I wanted.

Taking the train from San Diego tomorrow to pick up the car...really looking forward to it.

Now...just have to get the windows tinted a spoiler, and maybe some different rims.

I bought it at Weber BMW in Fresno. I paid something between invoice and MSRP with the low promotional money factor.
