Maybe. I bet pretty much everyone would still object to carrying a balance across cycles for money they don't owe anyone, though. :p

I agree with your assertions, although the guys in Colorado get a credit card number from me whenever I get a loaner too. I've never seen a charge, though.

It's got to be an authorization. No merchant would try to lay $750 on your credit card and keep your money for 45 days, without actually having anything to charge you for. The s**t storm they would...

I just quickly checked Edmunds - looks like there is $2500 in build-out cash for 2014 F10s through September 2nd. I believe you can always get a $500 USAA discount if you are a USAA customer. If...

I see your point, and clearly BMW agrees that most people who want a 550 feel the way you do, and that's how they deliver them.

There are, however, many shades of gray between "why is this car so...
