I hadn't heard the wagon was a mistake, but I did hear the GT hasn't sold as well as expected.

But the 3 Series sales numbers tripled in the same 25yrs, so a hypothetical 15% take rate in 1990 would now only be a 5% take rate today.

Remembering that BMW is a for-profit company, certain...

I remember someone saying he had a warranty denial due to lowering springs for an xDrive related issue. Performance related mods usually carry some type of warranty risk. So, buyer beware.

It was a concern for the M Division, which cited it as the reason for no F10 M5x. If others don't have problems, then maybe it's not a real problem.

No significance, just quickly scanning the pic, I see the 2er, 4er, 6er, Z4, and the prototype 5er vert renderings. I'm not sure why they had to include the 5GT in the pic. :rofl:

I go to BMW of Silver Spring, which is a highly rated dealer in the MD/DC area. I've been a customer of theirs for years, so they may have given me a bit of leeway. BMW's Nappa is their most...

@MrBreezenovel & @Djsaad1,

I asked her to check out the Grand Cherokee, so she really didn't care which trim level she was looking at. She just assumed that I wanted the most expensive one.
