Also, FWIW I have changed the oil every ~6500 miles, or twice as often as the car calls for it, so we probably cannot blame the long intervals on this either. I suppose I did put my first 20K miles...

To do a European Delivery on August 1, it would seem that one would have to order by May 1. So, I am hoping we see this info by the end of April. Or is the 90 day order time different now?

Thanks. It will be interesting to see if the price delta between 228 and M235 grows, as for the configuration I want the difference for MY2014 is only around $2000.

Model year 2015 Ordering Dates?

Anyone know when MY2015 pricing and option details will be released? I think I read somewhere here that production ends in late June for the 2014s, and you need to order 3 months in advance for ED.

No question CNG will be way cheaper than gas or diesel for the next 10 plus years (short term in the northeast not so much in winter) but you give up range and refueling options. The economics may...

OP, do you mean LNG or LPG? These are different, and I think the natural gas supply in the US would lead one to think of LNG, not LPG for transportation.

I worked with board sponsor Alex Dytko at BMW of Peabody back in 2010, and think the deal was fair (and based off ED Invoice less the $3500 eco-credit available for the 335d at the time.)

Cool. Do you need a code from your ED paperwork to get the 15%? I'm considering trading in the 335d for an M235i this year.

We hit the ZSP limit of just over 150 on the Autobahn after our car was broken in a couple of weeks into our ED. It was scary only because of how normal it seemed.
