Cars.com has 2 that meet your specs.

3 if you're willing to drive up to 500 miles, and 11 countrywide.

Prices seem kinda high. For about the same money, you could get a 2006 E60 M5.

If you stayed up, the skies cleared up. (The only reason I was up was I was finishing my taxes.) A unique sight. Thanks for the pics Citizen.

I think that's a legit advantage of leasing. I had significant hail damage years ago. Got it fixed but upon lease return, dealer could tell right away. Might have cost me if I had to trade it in.

The probability of a total loss is a small fraction of a percent. But it can happen and if it does, the above example sounds representative of the issue. The flip side is a down payment reduces the...

Amen.

And as a corollary to this, each additional dollar you put down is less at risk. In other words, if you are in a position to make a huge down payment (and it made financial sense), you're...

Compare pricing to a current build Msport edition (same options). They have essentially repriced these mid model year. May still be a great deal, especially if you're leasing.

If you're getting another BMW then there may be a way to extract some equity out of your current lease by trading it in on the 435i. The payoff will be close to MMV for a car with normal miles...

Standard, but only on 7/1 and later builds (or something like that). So there are still some 2014s on the lot with the non-LCD cluster.

Since the brand new ones usually come with a nice discount, I'd guess about 25% off original sticker for a 1-2 year old one.

But unless you plan to keep it for a while, you'd probably be much...

Unfortunately, no. I've done my last two deals (one ED, one regular) through Greg Poland in Calif. There's shipping cost, but it's really hassle free. Call him.
