You have to go down to your local county tax office and register/pick up tags. You also have to get an inspection done (no two-year inspection, but since it's a new vehicle, it's cheaper than...

I don't see why it's questionable at all. OK, maybe the "someone needs to fix that under warranty" bit, but just slightly, since it apparently only takes a few seconds to reprogram and shouldn't...

I'd say the key fob is different. Any model/year compatible key will apparently work, it'll just need to be programmed to the vehicle (which appears to be very simple)....

Sorry to hear you've been hit with the "Drivetrain Malfunction" gremlin. I doubt the brand of gasoline (Shell vs. Exxon vs. BP) makes any difference. I also don't see the gas cap removal time being...

Agree, there's more to service than just loaners. But if a service department is willing to "punish" you for not buying directly from them, then they probably don't have any local competition on the...

Seriously, is getting a loaner that big of a deal? (I suppose it could be in the very unlikely event you run into extended repairs/delays) Put differently - how much would you be willing to pay, up...

This begs the question - what's the use of a "pull ahead" program if the dealer is simply taking it as a trade-in and has the option to refuse it? Seems like pure marketing gimmick - the extra...

Why can't they "technically" help you? Many of us have used an out of state dealer with great success.

Sounds true - searching cars.com shows only 3 new xdrive in the entire US, two 2013 models and a 2012. I doubt you can still lease these leftovers.

Interesting. CA tax laws appear to be opposite TX laws and encourage leasing vs buying.

On balance, a very positive move for me. The GC is a much more sporty ride which is what I was seeking. There are times however when I miss the highway cruiser ride and extra space of the 7.

No on the stepless door stops. Had to start being more careful in the 6GC, coming from a 7 series. The 6 doors are much lighter and prone to even catching the wind on a windy day.
