I am in agreement with you. I got the IDL back in 2010 prior to ED. I plan on reusing it for my upcoming ED even though it will be 4.5 years old

I don't think the two programs are comparable. I picked up my 128i in Munich, saved a decent amount on the car, but it only offset a portion of the expense of the European vacation. In my opinion,...
