This varies by car and by year. Highly in-demand cars, regardless of model may have to come out of dealer's allocation. However, once the initial demand is covered, that could change. An example...

Anyone else have a car on PRIME ACE?

Slightly ahead of schedule, but the wait is still killing me.... Really wish they'd skip the Panama canal and truck it over from the east coast!

I think you're stressing out too much about this. Just try not to set the cruise control at 65 for the entire drive. Just do a few aggressive passes or back roads for a part of it.

Well, in addition to changing speeds, I recommend you follow the suggestion of keeping your speed constant, but changing gears, which will force your RPMs to change.

Sorry to hear that! This has been my standard route for selling cars, and it seems to work.

Possibly. The car was extremely capable. I think for me, there was a difference between capability and feel/fun. Throttle response was excellent when pushing it hard, but was vague when trying to...

I'm not an expert, but I think your finance calculation may be off. The rates you quoted are money factors, so 0.00135-0.00049=0.00086

0.00086MF= 2.064% annual = 0.172% monthly

This results in...

I'd tell them exactly what you told us, and that you want your car inspected. Should be straightforward for them.

Unless something's changed, I don't think you can use wheels from a 335 on an M3. That certainly was not the case for a 2008 335 (similar to 2011) to a 2009 M3 (similar to 2013). I believe the...

I was about to ask "why'd you trade so quickly?", but just saw your signature. Going from a heavier 4-series with the 28 engine to a M235i is a big + in driving enjoyment.
