Oh, how the mighty have fallen . . .

After 23 straight years on the list, the BMW 3/4 Series was not named one of Car and Drivers 10 Best Cars in its January 2015 issue. Is it time for BMW to pull its head out of its ass and bring us...

None and unlikely to be any in the near term. BMW can't build them fast enough to meet current demand - no need for incentives.

The build out cash applies to 2014 models which are no longer being produced. No way to order now and use the incentive toward a ED. If you ordered a 6 Series today, it would be a 2015 model.

Keep in mind that when you buy the car from BMWFS, you'll have to pay applicable sales tax and then resell the car at enough of a premium to recoup that added costs.

I suggest that you move quickly. My wife's car was scheduled for week 10 production. I called the dealer to make a change today and the car was bumped up two weeks with production starting today.
