I might owe you a steak dinner! It's on that list.

Auction and reconditioning fees would be what... 10-12% plus $500 or so for a good detail?

2012 X5 35d Question

I have my eye on a '12 35d that has an interesting story, and wanted to get some input from the experts here.

It was a manufacturer vehicle, presumably a non-US version because at 16k miles it...

How is this deal for a CPO 2011 335i?

Sounds like a fair deal. Paid about $36k for mine with 9500 miles, but without convenience and cold weather. I have CPO, performance edition upgrade (the factory tune), sport, premium, nav and...
