Ha, that's funny. A Tesla P85+ handles pretty well does it not?

To answer your question about lease deals, you're not going to get nearly as good of a deal as you did on your 5. Demand is pretty high for the X5 and, depending on where you are in the country, you...

Funny enough, I'm in OH and have a one month old black 2014 X5. Had to go to KY to find this one, so I feel your pain. Leasing it for 36 months/12k miles. Only 1100 miles on it so far. Love it but...

7% off MSRP is usually invoice, though. You're not going to get that without any incentives/discounts.

But to be honest, he/she has a point here. The i3 is not an attractive car by most standards. Why go with such an outlandish design when what the entire electric car industry needs is mass adoption?...

Are there even any reviews out on the 2015 yet? There are very minor changes between 2014 and 2015 in any event.

What is MSRP? Around 63 or so? That's not a bad price at all if so. Of course, if...

+1 on surround view. I didn't get that either and also regret it. I thought it was sort of gimmicky when I first saw it, but can now see the utility in tight (or any) parking spaces.

I see lots of mention of Greg Poland, but am I wrong that he can only help folks in California? How would talking to him help if I'm clear across the country?
