In reading posts on this board I understand that you don't want to buy the first wave of the 2008 535xi's as they are BMWs beta test cars. Whatever issues turn up on the beta test models are addressed later in the year, so don't buy until the fall of 2008. If I'm waiting that long why not wait until the redesigned (un-spangled) 535xi comes out in 2009? The 2008 model will take a huge depreciation hit as will all the spangle designed models once the new designs are out. Thoughts? Thanks.

un-spangled???

spangle designed??

Anyway, you could ask the exact same thing about the 535i, 528i, 335i & 328i. I wouldn't consider any of them "beta" models.

Plus, the current design is really really sharp. I don't get what you're saying...
