I don't understand the reasoning of "if you build up a 328 to $47k, you should just get a 340" personally. By the time you add Nav, Leather, Moonroof, Comfort Access, Rear camera, and PDC to a 328...

The 535d is amazing. Probably the best car I've ever owned, it's pretty much perfect with the DHP package (IMO). Fast off the line, quick on the highway, roomier than the 3, and amazing MPG. You...

Think of it this way Mike, they gave you a "discount" of $9,000 off MSRP. Your $1142 negative equity plus the extra rent charges (about $1,700) means the true discount was just over $6k. That's not...

Hmm, I need a set for a 335is, but it has 225/35R19 and 255/30R19 I believe.
