I've always heard 100% use is a potential red flag for the IRS. I usually list 85-90% use. Just my .02.

There's no guarantee that the bonus depreciation will be offered for 2013.

I doubt Interpol will come knocking on your door for one speeding ticket. Did the letter arrive via certified mail? If not, how can they prove you received it? I was in Europe three years ago, and...

I'm merely stating that it's a matter of perspective. Some people on here (mainly the gassers) infer that the X5d is noisy. As someone who owned a 2005 Dodge 2500 CTD, I think those people are...

He might have mentioned the ML, but he also made the X5d sound like it's on par with a Mack. The point I was trying to make is that I felt some people on here exaggerate the noise level of the BMW...

The X5d isn't loud. If you feel otherwise, you belong in a Lexus. Drive an American HD pickup with a diesel and then tell me the BMW is still loud. I know it's all relative, but give me a break. ...
