Now that the LCI 550i will have the same power, the case for the 650 is even tougher. Nice looking but not $25K-$30K nicer. Crazy.

How is car registration/plates handled with PCD?

Does the dealer send the plates registration documents to PCD or do you leave PCD with a temp tag and have to go back to dealer?

Nice review. I am close to a decision on moving from my 2007 e92 335i to a 2011 e92 M3.
What did you think of the S4 in comparison to both your 335i and the M3?
