My dealer told me the pull ahead program was good as long as ordered by 3/31/14 and delivery taken by April 30th? If what you're saying is true, I lucked out because my car came in early and I took...

He's selling you the car for below invoice plus a $1K college "bonus". That's a good deal on the surface, but what he's really telling you is he has to make it up on the money factor. It's pretty...

Seriously? That would be the kiss of death for his dealership if caught. No franchised dealer would risk not only their reputation, but business to make a few extra dollars on a car sale. Now...

The RE960AS RFT does not come in a 245-40-19. I've been waiting for Bridgestone to add our size with no luck. Best match is a 245-45-19. Not sure why you're having a problem if that's the size,...

Why take the chance of getting stopped? One or two glasses of wine and an excuse to stop you for not having a front plate can cost you a heavy fine or worse. I ran three years without a front plate...

The LS2 is an all-season RF, so it comes with all 535 XI's. The main complaints come from those with M-Sport or Sport packages in the 245-40-19 size. The other XI models come with the LS2's, but in...

Really feel for you guys in the NE. It would drive me crazy to have to go through that many tires. Sad truth is BMW will probably never replace the LS2 just because it impacts a limited number of...

Didn't say lender is trying to scam. Said the dealer. Sure it's a business arrangement. The dealer wants to be able to finance a customer before they walk out the door and the lender wants a loan...

I would ask your dealer if he was able to modify an existing allocation. If yes, "ready to ship is a fairly fast process". My new M-Sport was ordered on February 13th. It entered production on...
