Agreed. If you are looking for just the deal, get a leftover 5 this month. The 3 is also pretty strong and everything else is meh.

This may be true in your locale, but in the warmer states the M's are daily drivers. Most of the guys/gals on here drive their M's daily like me (I do 30k miles a year) because this is a great GT car...

Best tires for '14 328i (base) in Florida?

Try the Bridgestone S001 Run flat. It is a max performance summer tire and it is a OEM tire so you can turn the car in with these tires should you choose to do so. They cost about 160 a piece and...

2016 550i Deal

Why not consider buying out of state from a Bimmerfest sponsor who can give you a better deal? I suggest Adrian Avila at United BMW of Gwinnett Place in Atlanta, Georgia or Greg Poland at Pacific...

CAs - Harman Kardon Priority 1 on 2017 330i. Does it matter?

Maybe. I can see your logic in light of BMWNA's new move to tie the back end 5% CSI money to total MSRP rather than base price MSRP.

CAs - Harman Kardon Priority 1 on 2017 330i. Does it matter?

I am guessing that BMWNA did this because of the low take rate for HK audio on the 328 (now 330). I do agree that it makes no sense, but my casual observation is that few dealers bothered to order HK...

June 2016 Residuals, Incentives and Money Factor

Thanks! The 52% kills the 2015 as far as a deal. Even a 20k discount from MSRP makes the 2015 a bad lease (more than a 2016 with normal discount). I'll probably look for a 2017 with Apple CarPlay.

Considering that I paid 63k for a new 2016 with almost the same equipment, I would say that deal is not very good.

FL Dealer Fees

Actually. Some stores are being even more atrocious and have bumped the dealer fee to 849 (i.e. Braman BMW).

It will settle. Mine dropped considerably after I put about 3k miles on it. I would expect a comp pack car will drop even more than mine.
