I disagree. I find the BMW interior far more interesting than an Audi interior. I think Audi's designs are too conservative. The materials are nice but I have no issues with my Coral Red sport...

9.8% sales tax in Washington? Wow. In Michigan it's 6%. I prefer not to reveal my information but you are rolling into the monthly payment $1100.00 plus the tax on this. That's nearly $34.00/month...

I think there are two misconceptions in the OP's post.

1) Sport doesn't use any more fuel at a constant speed than Comfort. It just makes the throttle more sensitive for quicker acceleration.

You put down MSD's to get a better money factor yet your MF is far higher than BMW is giving. Either your dealer is screwing you over or you have bad credit.

I never heard this but it makes no sense. Every revolution of the crankshaft takes the piston through its full stroke. Higher rpm's just do it more frequently.

No. Alignment has to do with suspension settings (camber, caster, toe-in). Unless the rims are really messed up they won't affect alignment.

Summer or all season tires? Conti A/S RFT's on my 2011 E90 lasted over 30K miles on the fronts and about 28K on the rears.

I like the Mark VII GTI a lot but no way is it at $30K comparably equipped to a fully loaded 435i. In fact, many options available on the BMW are not even offered on a GTI AFAIK.

Yep. And the take rate on MT 3 series is less than 5%. The F3X series is also only in it's 3rd model year so most of these are still in the hands of the original lessee or owner.

I agree with CA's sentiments. I am a MT junkie and want to shift for myself. I also seek out twisty roads and don't often commute in stop and go traffic. If my car was used strictly in slow speed...

Do some research on where dealers make money. These are designed to be a huge profit center for the dealers and IMO those prices are highway robbery.

That's a very nicely optioned 328i, $10K more than my Sport Line model and to me that's a lot of money for a 328. If it was me I'd rather have a less loaded 335 for that kind of money.

The dealer and some repair shops are just covering their butts when they won't repair holes in RFT's. You should have shopped around a bit more. I've had them repaired without issue.

That's not a downpayment. It's multiple security deposits that lower the interest rate and are fully refundable at lease end.
