Age and Occupation?

I agree. I also find it humorous how pretentious 3/4 owners are given that these cars are rather commonplace and nothing special. It is noteworthy that owners of more expensive models seem to be more...

Very nice choices given that you must have AWD. I was about to ask why not an M6 vert and I remembered that you gave up on RWD in Montana.

2015 X1 Discount

I will just put this out there. Adrian offered a co-worker of mine 5k off MSRP on any in-stock X1 by end of January 2015. A great deal in my book.

I understand not wanting red. However, the better half's 335 sedan is red and I must admit it is a good looking car. The deal you were offered is very good IMHO. I would pass on the IS350.....no...

2015 550i Manual Trans - NOT!

Buy what you want, but I honestly prefer Audi if I am buying an AWD vehicle. Audi does AWD cars so much better than BMW in most cases. An S4 with 6MT is a very nice car with winter capability. I...

The x5 is one of BMW's best sellers and BMW does not need to do incentives to move them beyond the normal inflated lease residuals. I have had several x5's and, until the new model, I thought they...

A 70 dollar bump in acquisition fee should not be a barrier to leasing a 30-100k car. Most people will not even notice IMHO.

Perhaps I misunderstood. The configurator makes it seem that you cannot build a convertible without those options hence why I labeled them standard.

Keep in mind. If you want an M4 vert, BMW has limited your options in configuration. DCT and M adaptive are standard.
