I'd have to say the M-Sport as well.

But I also have to say BMW really bundles a lot of preferences that are only available in the Exec Package, and I think it's kind of crappy. HUD and satellite...

The 14 days is a suggestion, but not a requirement.

I've always been on business trips at the 14 day mark (sometimes I really was traveling) but manage to sign before I leave.

You guys can pick on the Mexicans all you want, but a mid-February delivery in sunny Puerto Vallarta appeals to me quite a bit! (Plus, no need for snow tires.)

Note that BMW only covers 2 weeks of insurance while in Europe, so I think you'll need to pay a little extra if you're going to have the car there for a month. (There's also a rule that it needs to...

Your dealer sounds like a real jerk, to be honest.

You haven't signed anything and it doesn't sound like you're out any money if you walk? Then do just that.

+1

The design is good, but materials have felt very cheap lately -- this from my 2014 535xi and 2015 X5. There are also extra rattle noises that just shouldn't be there.

July is peak travel time to Europe, and the prices reflect that.

I would say $1,700 is on the high end, and it's still somewhat early to book. Set up a Yapta to monitor your travel dates, and...

West Coast-bound ships rarely stop on the USA East Coast; they usually depart Southampton and head right for the Panama Canal.

City to city Phoenix and San Antonio are similar, but by metro area, Phoenix has an additional 2MM people. I'm pretty sure BMW uses overall population to determine where they set up dealerships.

It's pretty impressive how they coordinate the production on the line. You could have a bare bones white 3.5 Sdrive, and right behind it could be a blue X5M, and behind that could be a grey X6.
