Agree - I got $900 over invoice negotiated back in May, dealer didnt even blink. This late in the model year with 2013s litteraly rolling in, $500 over should be very doable. $1500 is crazy IMHO.

Looks really good - that's one of the changes I've considered for mine. Its a small change but it can really change the front-end look.

Turning on the wipers to shift gear, and other ways my 5 makes me look dumb
