I have an M-Sport. It doesn't have that option.

I had that option on my F01 ActiveHybrid 7, and set it up similarly to what you said - that worked much better.

Are you looking for a cheaper car? Better car? etc.

Most new cars are great cars. It really comes down to where you want to be.

My ED RWD 550i is in the $650 range per month, max MSDs, taxes and fees up front, before BMWCCA rebate. So $800 with no MSDs is an excellent deal for an S6. And I think the S6 is a more expensive...

For Audi, you also need to factor in maintenance costs, all other fees being equal. That's why I was adding a little higher ownership cost.

The 4WD over the RWD of a 550i (assuming not xi), may...

I just booked an oil service. My CA asked if I needed a loaner for myself and my wife. Any relationship to this program meaning too many loaner cars in the fleet?

My sister's M Sport with the M emblem on the flanks. 2015 520D.

Stock from factory. Australian config. Sophisto Grey - which I think was not an M-Sport color in the USA (but may be wrong).

I doubt it as well. ED makes up 2% of sales (less). And the others don't even offer maintenance.
