I got around that by making my wife an Associate member. I think it's only $5-$10 a year extra. The 1 year wait applies.

Well worth the flexibility for that small additional payment. You never...

I could go with that. If they don't negotiate on the MF markup, then push down the selling price by a corresponding amount. They are willing to negotiate on that apparently.

Having owned a 2012 7 series (Hybrid 750i), and now a 2015 550i, here is my take on room.

The 7 series SWB does have more leg room in the rear. Perhaps about 1-2 inches in real world usage. ...

I wonder if the cap cost reduction of $5,650.00 was not counted by mistake, but the $0.20 per mile overage charge was correct, if the lease would have stood with BMWFS. I always thought that cap...

The biggest thing going for the G11 is the show off factor. That it does well. Biggest and most expensive BMW, model wise, for a sedan. Plus that rear seat package.

But thinking how it compares...

I might take the risk of a non-CPO. Have a few thousand as backup. Look into the N63 issues and warranty.

I suspect this is a lease return. It may be a great deal!

My quick take from the the short preview, was that the major improvements are on the interior of the car, noticeably for the rear passengers. This is in line with the 7 series largest market being...

I use the HK speaker more as an external portable charger. Worked great in Japan for my iPhone!

It's a little mediocre for a speaker.

BMW Steering Column Adjust - is this correct?

I'm looking at my 2015 550i, and it seems like the steering column adjust design looks cheap in that it's a button on top of a bare stalk. I've attached a blurry image. It's almost as though a base...

How much can you sell it privately for? If you can sell it for what you paid, you will only be losing/paying again, the sales tax on your new car.
