The thing about all of this consternation is that in the end, there are no really good deals on a Porsche or Maserati. I wouldn't touch that Maserati with a 10 foot pole until more data comes out...

I used points for the Westin, one block from the Arrabellapark U-Bahn station, and a one train transfer to get to the Welt. The U-Bahn station is right outside of the Welt and is a very quick walk.

I stayed at the Westin. It is a nice enough hotel, although a little outside of the city center, so it is quieter and more suburban. Still only a block from the U-Bahn, and a simple transfer will...

I'm on my second 550i. Still awaiting redelivery from ED, but it should be any day now. In both cases, I went with RWD, even though they are not common around these northern parts. Have the snows...

I would roll those taxes in to the payment, no need to pay for them upfront. Overall it seems to be a relatively fair deal. However, I'd still contact a board sponsor. We have two in NJ. I used...

If you place an order, they do keep the lease price firm. I've done it that way twice already. And if the program is better, you can take it. For my lease, an extra $1,000 cash was applied to the...

I was mistaken as to the timing of the Un4gettable event, but no matter. The deal looks solid, and the upgrade to the 535 is nice. I see it has lighting too, which is a really cool feature to have.

I'm hoping for the end of August too. Since I'm in NJ, barring any customs delays or damage, that should be possible. Since my lease officially ends on 8/31, that would work perfectly.

I dropped off mine in Frankfurt on 7/21 and it's on the Don Juan. On the ocean right now, heading to Halifax and then NY. You're are correct that the wait for redelivery is the hardest part.
