I'm planning on ordering a 2014 750i loaded and was wondering what kind of discounts off sticker price others of you were getting? I know I over paid on my first BMW, a 2011 550i. I typically buy...

Yeah, but can you order a GC with the seat belts in the pillar instead of the seat? I test drove 650i GC and decided the seat belt placement was a deal breaker. I'm off to a 750i or 750Li. And the...

I can't wait to get my hands on 650i GC

I agree...anyone pitying us for going after a 650i GC is the one that needs pity. It sounds like sour grapes to me. They can't afford one or Momma won't let them buy one so they throw stones at a...
