Ditto - perfect spot. Sucks that the drivers assistance+ takes up the storage space. Clearly BMW should have relocated those electronics to the bottom of the trunk.

+1.

Without any incentives, your sale price is pretty much spot on invoice. I believe base MF is 0.0013 for July - make sure you put any extra cash on hand towards those MSDs.

BMW adds 0.7 seconds of delay once a foot swipe is detected before the trunk opens. I coded mine down twice to 0.3 seconds and then to no delay. 0.7 seconds may seem small to some, but for me the...

I'd recommend NOT disabling TPMS for both your safety and those driving around you. Suck it up and buy another set of TPMS sensors for your new wheels.

And paypal Chicago and me $3k a piece out of that $6k you're willing to "let go"

The 428 will be plenty fast for 99% of daily driving you do.

Also, what do the other fees such as paperwork fees and the lease acquisition fee add up to?
