They can't even get me a car period. If they could it would be at MSRP. As for being owed something, I've been a more than loyal customer (of the ten new BMWs I've owned two have been M5s, and...

No - totally disagree. As a former 135 vert owner, the cloth top allows for MUCH more trunk space AND a bigger back seat. If you want a hartop, that's what the 435 is for. Also cloth is...

I wasn't thinking its just a few grand more to spend but rather it will be worth 5-7k more in resale vs a loaded 28. I think when you sell it you would see it back and then some.

Which is what happened with me. I love the nimbleness of the 28 S drive but by the time I put my options on it the 35 was only a few grand more
