When I see a GTR, I see it as just another Fast & Furious boy racer just like the EVO and WRX: crude NVH, high horsepower, AWD, and a dressed up to prevent it from looking like a boring car.

$1,800 interest on $5250 over a 3 year period equates to a 10.3% APR. Not a bad fixed interest rate. :thumbup:

I didn't mean that you should collect measurements AT 20kmi. I meant that you should collect measurements FOR 20kmi. After, you will have some meaningful data on 328i mpg performance.

Or in the case of where I live, diesel fuel can be 10-25 cents less per gallon. When I bought my 335d, the break even point was well within the first year.

I always drop off my car for any service that it needs and I always get a loaner. I never wait at the dealer for anything. The same held true when I owned an MB or Audi.

For most models it is recommended in the manual, but not required.

My break-in periods usually only last the handful of miles it takes to go from the Welt to the Autobahn. :D

1. I would expect that to be a pittance for you. Aren't already paying $600/mo for a 3er? So a grand/mo for a 6er doesn't seem to be unreasonable at all.
