Croatia is covered by the insurance. You won't have any issues at all going there.

Do give the Q5 serious consideration, especially the diesel IMO. It's a fantastic, very high quality, very well rounded smaller SUV. For me, it sits between the X3 and the Macan.

Extended Euro Stay and Insurance

I've done Euro Delivery a number of times. A few BMWs, one MB, and one Porsche. I'm planning my next ED, but this one is a little different. Since I now live in Europe part of the year, I'd like to...

One of those guys, the one without the beard, is a bit of an idiot. He repeats the same old tired arguments against diesels. That's doing a real disservice to the car buying public.

X3 - Price (significantly less), Fuel Economy, More Space, Free Maintenance

Macan S - Handling,...

I can understand your emotions, man. You were lucky! I've never had one, but have always dreamt of one...in that exact color.
This particular one resides at the BMW Museum in Munich.

I very much doubt that. Consider the EPA mileage difference for the 2014 328 and X3, with the same gasoline engine:

2014 328i xDrive

City: 22
Highway: 33
Combined: 26

2014 X3 xDrive28i

Can the ASS be turned off permanently, or do you have to switch it off every time you start the car?

Also, do auto high beams work as expected in the real world?

How did you get a discount? AFAIK no one is getting a discount, at least not yet, since it's such a hot commodity.

+1 - Color is such a personal thing, it's pointless asking anyone else's opinion. However...., since you asked, I vote for Liquid Blue. Very cool color, and easy to maintain.

Drove one a couple of months ago and it was OK. Shame about the lack of a MT though.

I also don't care for the looks at all, but I guess that's a personal thing.

Driving fast on the track is certainly fun, but I'm sure you'd agree that:

b) an F30 is really not an ideal track car...

+1 - Precisely.

It's irrelevant that the AT might be faster than the MT, or that F1 drivers use AT. The drive for different reasons than I do. They drive for speed/money. I drive for pleasure!
