I love my 435i Coupe, so I'm sure you also love your 440i. Alsace will be great that time of the year in September - harvest time. Maybe you can go out and stomp some grapes. :)

I don't believe there is any incentive whether you do PCD or not. PCD is just a nice perk. You can buy a car off the lot and schedule a PCD event or order one direct from the factory and have it...

The $300 is the sales tax you are charged for purchasing a new car in the State of South Carolina. It sure beats the $3,500 sales tax it cost me in New Jersey back in 2011 when I did PCD in SC.
