To OP the promo code is tied to individual instead of the dealer who hosts the event, so the code can be used at any dealer.

Given the amount of electronics in these cars it probably is safer to use jump terminals under the hood than direct connection to battery.

The Orbit Grey Style 398 looks quite unique, although ZMP+ZTR should probably keep the Style 400M rather than swap in non-M wheels(like the 398).

Basically the 328i can be a stage 2(?) tune on 320i, BMWNA just needs to de-content the 328i base to match with 320i base just like in UK/Germany lineups.

It would be good if BMWNA offers an engine upgrade on 320i base just like in UK/Germany. :) My guess is many US customers will opt for a base 320i with 245HP/255b-ft for $2k MSRP price increase.

Th lack of a la carte is not a real issue for those who want the exact options offered in US-spec packages, and in general BMWNA does a reasonable job with package contents.

The last time looking into one-pay was a year ago(and 0.0008 was valid then), a search on recent posts says 0.0003, and there is no other post that indicate any change to that 0.0003(yet).

Yes the last check was with 0.0008(0.003 or 0.008 would be phenomenal), it's unfortunate the discount is not as attractive these days.

MSD is a great tool to make lessees stay and not forfeit. My take is that the banks still make money with reduced MF and MSDs. It is just that consumers grossly overpay without MSDs, but then have...
