They do, but it's not that altruistic.

BMWFS bumps the money factor for EDs by .0003, presumably to cover part of that "waived" payment.

And a fast re-delivery is 5-6 weeks. A payment cycle is...

They might. I mean, it's our government so we probably pay them quintuple overtime or something. Those guys probably exchange Mon/Tues for Sat/Sun!

Yes, the steering wheel warmer button is in the most ridiculous location.

If you want to see a colossal failure of cockpit design, look at the F10's predecessor, the E60.

I'm pretty sure EDs just get some wax sprayed on them (no panels of white stickers) for shipping, and it's power washed off at the VPC. I believe it's shipped to the dealer pretty much ready to go.

Very true...but would you go to the store and buy a set of LED headlights for $2,000? Or how about spend a $500 premium to buy paint with some metal flakes in it?

I called the ED line today and was told my car was received at the VDC yesterday afternoon, so I'm through U.S. Customs. Phew!

Now it's processing and then onto a truck.

If you have the all seasons, it will be 130 MPH. If you got performance/summer tires, 155 MPH.

Enjoy!

You need to stop asking here and go drive it to make the decision yourself.

That's still a pretty decent time for re-delivery, only 10 days from ship docking to dealer arrival (of course you're right up the road, so that helps!).
