I may need to reconfigure my outbound flight, would love to see the match.

Wine-O: sounds like a sound idea. What German/Bavarian ski resorts do you recommend? I'll look into.

To paraphrase Honorable Judge Koh, unless someone is smoking crack, a 2012 650i CV is not getting traded for $91k. Or even $80k. More like $70k or even a few grand less if you go off brand.

Not so...

Congrats! Titanium with Vermillion is a great looking combo.

Was your 550xi a trade assist (manufacturer buyback)? That is how BMWFS got paid for the balance owed, right?

'Over 20k off MSRP'...

While the 4 door GC is 4.4 inches longer than the Coupe, the GC 650xi is going to have 445 hp and 480 lb-ft twist, good for a jaw dropping 4.5 sec 0-60, while the new M5 is listed at 4.3 sec. But the...

Actually, BMW does have incentives to move them, in your case, $7000 worth. Add another 1000 if you're a BMW CCA member. I do not think the incentives are going to get any better after 1/3, but who...
