I have the Ivory white interior. No problems. And it's a lease, so I don't sweat it too much anyway.

Don't know about B&O as I don't have that option.

Also, the one-pay MF discount decreased to 0.003 (from 0.008) earlier this year. Hardly worth it anymore.

Early 2014's didn't have digital dash. There may be other changes in '15 and '16.

OP, you'll get the $590/mo. deal if you just remain patient (i.e. do nothing). The other options for the...

Yes, assuming you are replacing another 20" wheel. If you starting with a smaller wheel, the math would be different.

Should be 3.5mm higher (front) and 3.0mm higher (rear) as that's the increase in sidewall height vs stock.

Are they claiming they to have sales tax credits to use in this deal? If so, then they're not really giving you a $3,100 discount.

It's true - the reduction happened last December, I think.

If it is already very hot in the interior, they're almost counterproductive as they seem to blow the heat from the seats themselves.
