For cryin' out loud. If you are going to do that, you should at least get a B7 and stick the M badges on that.

They were asking $95K, and $92.5 WAS their counter.

I am pretty much over it now. They can keep it. I am not dieing for a B7, but I did like the unique look.

Well, I figured $85K was a fair price for the same reason mentioned by Chris. Also, I can spec out and buy a heavily loaded 750i for pretty much the same thing. Last, the new B7 has 40 more hp.
