As with much of life, timing is everything. But do you really have much control over that?

You should keep that letter. In case the car gets stolen, show that to the police as a possible culprit!

Conversely you may have CAs jumping to Toyota and Honda since they miss the nickel and diming :).

I don't think the interior is a big deal. It's more a perception issue. If you own one, you will get used to it over time, and if you don't sit in anything else it will become normal.

I'll list...

I would show him the deals, and ask him what he can do. By being honest and open with him, I think you've been fair enough to give him a fair shot. He will likely feel so inclined.

Don't go on a weekend - they will be busy. I like Mondays and Tuesdays best. A long time until their potential next sale, so they may be more willing to deal.

Not if you were buying BMWs for the last 10 years or so. They aren't clawing back any of those discounts. It's not as though we have to pay BMW back for any prior incentives.

One of the worst things about my F10 550i (plus the steering feel and the tranny programming), is the lack of a Limited...

Any impressions about the lack of a limit slip rear differential? I know the E63S and M5 have those. I definitely miss one on my F10 550i RWD, so was wondering how the xDrive copes in that regard.
