^ and that's before considering interest rate differences now versus then. The loan I had on my 1993 Ford Probe was 12%, which seemed normal at the time.

Have your crossing pencil ready.

I'm getting closer on the Cadillac image thing. My semi-bland F10 experience is part of why. Also, the ATS coupe doesn't look as much like a transformer as the...

In which case Buick isn't a BMW competitor. Rather, BMW has chosen to move downmarket into Buick's target area with the 320. It's slightly different, wouldn't you agree?

How many of you would be more willing to buy this exact same car if GM had introduced it as part of a brand-new high performance division with a new name...and not as a Cadillac?

If Buick were to offer a legitimate 335 or 435 competitor - 300+ hp, tuned suspension, LSD, etc. - I would absolutely consider one. They are building very nice cars right now, just a bit mainstream...

One of the Denver BMW dealers had been advertising a 650 at $15K off list on the radio. I figured there must be some good programs on 2014 6ers going on.

I hope it's just me but... F30s just not the same?

I had the same experience coming from a V8 E60 to my current F10 535. I also drove a 550 and an X6 5.0 back to back recently and, given that they have the same engine, I was surprised at how much...

If you're buying it from a BMW dealer, it's absolutely weird that a car that new would not be a CPO. Otherwise, be sure and have an inspection done.

All else constant, you want this car to be CPO...

LOL. We battled each other for weeks about that in this thread (http://www.bimmerfest.com/forums/showthread.php?t=750738). Sophisto almost flew across from Amsterdam to strangle some of us.

I agree. Which is why I'll probably take the car that has more usable room and, to my eyes anyway, is a little more handsome. That's objective of course.

B58. Not sure when it's scheduled to land in the 5 and X5, though. It will probably be a killer in the 640.

Yes, but that is because for every one of you, BMW determined that five or more people thought the E90 suspension was too harsh.

Figures. Maybe Shockware, then, but I'd still have to find a way to lower the car 10mm or so in a lease.

I'm not talking about the 704.

I'm talking about the aftermarket BMW M performance suspension. The website shows it as available for the F3x xDrive.

Could be misleading.
