Thanks, everyone! They changed the acquisition fee to $725. Fair enough. I will order with everything in writing and hope they don't try to change the deal when the car arrives as they did last...

This happened to me a couple of times on my '08 X5. Once the cord had come loose inside the console - easy fix. (FWIW, my cord at least was somewhat finicky and had to be plugged in just so on both...

I don't think I have ever seen the percentage of biodiesel on a diesel pump. It's just diesel. Am I missing something?

I would take this question to the car-seat.org boards - if nobody has done it in an X5, they can surely tell you what car seats/boosters puzzle well together and tend to fit three across.

Yes, I picked it up in early December. From order date to delivery date was just shy of a month. I have no idea about the tax credit - I didn't really look into because I am leasing.
