$950? Pretty good deal given the 'sticker price' as a port installed option is $1730 (at least it was in March when I ordered).

Funny, I've only gone through perfunctory pitches at a dealership known to be a tough sell. Not complaining, but wondering why. On a related note, who is still offering or buying Lo-Jack?

The local indie we take the GF's Volvo to (and my BMWs for winter/summer tire swaps) did the work and mentioned that does a lot of RFT patching. He mentioned that BMW discourages this (surprise!),...

I will need to check, but according the Bridgestone website, road hazard damage is not covered. At all (unless you buy one of their protection packages).

Do it! I did and loving it! In fact, I ordered every option but adaptive cruise and driver assist plus! Why get a stripped 528i when you can get a loaded up 335i? :bigpimp:

I've done the same thing. Last 2 3ers, I put 18k out of 3k available both times. I got some money back in each case. I want to say it was in the neighborhood of $150 for my most recent back in May,...

I think the name of the game is to contact the dealer in advance and let them know you have a lease return. You can't just drop it on the stoop like an unwanted baby.

Why would they do that? M5 sales slow? Usually, the buy rate is the buy rate. It can be reduced through the use of MSDs.

Seems like a reasonable deal. What's with the $612 CCR? Seems like an odd number. I would just keep the money and take a small increase in monthly payment (maybe $15-$20/mo?).

Ahhh, that changes the picture a bit. Residuals for the X5 are low relative to F30s which explains the payment gap. So I don't have much experience with X5s other than the new model is out and the...

Is this for an F30? $855/mo for a $61.5k 3 series seems waaayyyy too much. My '14 335xi had an MSRP of $63k and with max MSD, 36/10k, $0 down it was just over $610/mo with MA tax. That's a sh*tty...

The next question is how to clean the HUD display in the dash? It is a gaping hole with a flat glass(?) surface at the bottom. Certainly fills with dust!
