Subvented lease rates require a minimum of 675. I would consult with a dealer to make sure they can get you approved for subvented. If they cannot you can still get approved, but there is a up charge...

I hope it's just me but... F30s just not the same?

As someone who just broke his own vow and purchased an F32 I will say that a "proper" 3/4 is closer to 60k than 50. I now agree with BJ that, configured correctly, the F30/32 can feel like a real...

I concur with unclej without the sarcasm. I used to purchase tire/wheel insurance back when it was 300 bucks for a 3 year policy. With the current rates you would have to destroy a few tires to break...

Coggin is a good store. I have used them for service for over a decade. Worth the drive.

My 3.5 is averaging about 20 mpg with about a 50/50 mix of city and highway. This is based on hard math rather than using the OBC although the OBC seems to be accurate too (reads 19.8 mpg). 3k miles...

If you liked the E92/93 m3 then you will like the RS5. Very similar driving experience although the M3 was faster and felt lighter on its feet. The RS5 feels very heavy. The M6 vert is bigger on the...

Gotcha. I understand as I just gave up my beloved M3 coupe for the 435 for fuel economy reasons. I drive significantly more than you though....about 30-32k a year.

My thoughts exactly. Once you load up the 435 into the 60's, a minimally equipped M4 for high 60's makes more sense from a performance and resale perspective.

So true. I just fell in love with mathfuzzy's glacier silver 435 coupe from Jon Shafer that I went out and purchased a carbon copy myself. Glacier silver really pops on these cars.

I know you hate that 328xi. Hope you can unload it to someone who will be happy with that car. The only car that made me happy, coming out of my E92 M3, was a 435. Finally a non-M BMW (F chassis)...

Maybe hate is too strong of a word. Definitely would say I disliked my F10 for the same reasons you mentioned except throttle lag (I did not have that problem).

The voucher says otherwise. It says 60 days from the date you attended the event. I would not rely on your dealer's unsubstantiated advice.

So I couldn't wait

Nice. In my m3 the best I could get was 270 to a tank before I was below 30 miles remaining. If I beat on it then I dropped to 200-210 a tank. On the x5m the range was about the same. Some days I...

You can demand the dealer give you buildout cash. However, I have no idea if they will agree. The drive event cash cannot be used on pre-existing orders.

If you can keep it 10 years and be around 100k miles then by all means buy vs lease. If you are like me and cover 100k miles in 3 years then you see why I prefer leasing.
