Buyers remorse

I can give some input here since I used to own a F10 and ended up with the E92 M3. First of all, if fuel economy is a concern the OP needs to accept the realization that all v8 engines drink gas and...

You can get dynamic handling with m sport. The online configurator has been wrong for the past few weeks for the 3.5. The 5.0 configurator is correct and let's you bundle m sport with DHP.

Are you buying or leasing? If you plan to buy and hold then I would suggest that you get the 320 or the 328. The new clean diesels have a lot of expensive and problematic parts that tend to fail...

Full term mileage allotment, but it is up to your dealer to decide if they want to do the pull ahead. The dealer has the right not to do it if the number BMWFS gives them doesn't make sense for them...

Of course. My interest is based on the assumption that the car lives up to its hype in the looks and performance department.

That is not bad given the car. It is only 3 months and another 2 months for the car to arrive stateside for delivery. You would probably be in the car by Labor Day. That is quite reasonable to me...

If you are like me you will wait. I want to move, but have decided to wait for the time being. I want to see how the economy settles once rates start creeping up and the fed ends QE.

13 M3 replacement tires

What difference does it make? The x5m drinks gas like it is going out of style. Can't get much worse than 11 mpg city.

Are You Looking Forward to an F30

Not worth it to buy a car with almost 90k miles on it. With my driving habits, leasing a new car every 2-3 years is the best way to drive a car in this price range.

You hit the nail on the head. I see the same thing home shopping in Palm Beach County. If one has to be house poor to own a nice house it hardly seems worth it.
