All of this speculation -- including mine -- is just marijuana mathematics. I think a lot of people who drive Bimmers smoke pot. :bigpimp:

Ok, I admit I was high when I did the math. But it's not that off! My car would've been $550 or more to lease. I paid $51K w/ T&L. I have a loaded EBII M Sport driven 4-5K miles a year, so it will be...

Blues, jazz, and classic rock sounds great on HK! I tweaked the EQ to my liking and haven't changed it in a Blue Moon (like the song).

I would only put black grills on a black or white F3x. On color Bimmers the chrome grill blends with the headlights forming a plane of reflection across the front facia.
