I go to BMW of Silver Spring, which is a highly rated dealer in the MD/DC area. I've been a customer of theirs for years, so they may have given me a bit of leeway. BMW's Nappa is their most...

I dropped off my 6er for service and I picked a 328 wagon over a 535 as loaner, since Mrs D has mentioned on more than one occasion that she was interested in the 3er wagon. While driving along, I...

I think $17k off is quite decent. That's is in the ball park of my '13 Coupe ED deal. If I add in a last minute (the day I left for Germany) lease money factor & residual change (decrease of...

Mrs D & I are at the bike track tonight and the local Corvette club has a display of four fairly new Corvettes. Mrs D leaned over and said "do you want your picture taken with a cheap car?". :0

@MrBreezenovel & @Djsaad1,

I asked her to check out the Grand Cherokee, so she really didn't care which trim level she was looking at. She just assumed that I wanted the most expensive one.

400 cars!!! That's incredible.

I've never owned a pre-owned car, so oddly enough that may count as a new experience. I thought a pre-owned SLS might be fun, but the GT is so much less expensive,...

No, just another car fan who was disappointed with my car choice. He was hoping I would get an R8.

Maybe, I should get an Accord and see how he reacts. ;)

I remember when I rolled up in my brand new BMW 550, the first reaction from a friend and fellow car fan was concern. He wanted to know if I was having financial troubles. :(

Yeah, I don't think I put enough thought into the last round of cars, otherwise I would have known Mrs D wouldn't been happy driving the 6er while I was taking her SUV to the races. Live and learn.
