Congrats. I'm jealous of your color choice. Deep Sea Blue would've been up there for me, but the M235 significantly limits your color options.

To add to the list the other person posted, I saw exactly that in 2008, in a train station. To be clear, it didn't feel like a dangerous situation; just surprising that it seemed so out in the open....

Those are the worst.

I saw some people smoking hard drugs in a train station on my first ED. They weren't driving, though.

Yes, I had forgotten the impatience that comes when the car is sitting at the port some 50 miles or so away from you but you can't have it yet. It doesn't help that I drove past Port Hueneme just two...

Thanks for the details. That is a pretty attractive rate for a $100K+ car. Did you consider doing multiple security deposits?

Yes, please do. A guy in my office is interested in a 550i and if there are deals to be had on the M5 I'm sure he'd appreciate being pointed in that direction.

Hope not, but I may be too optimistic. The 2wglobal site shows both customs release and liner release and I think that means my car has cleared customs, but I'm not sure about that.

Question on Rate Locks

I'm planning on signing the lease on my ED M235 on 8/2. My understanding (which I'll confirm with my dealer) is that they did a rate lock for the May program. There isn't a material difference in...
