No way

I TOOK delivery of my 11 M3 vert at 1% over invoice. that is the best deal out there. I've bought/leased many BMW's from that dealer and I tried others but came back to them for the sale.

picked up my car today and the mf went down on my M3 vert to 00160. Great news as my payment kept going lower. No better deal in Bmw land than an M3 vert. Highest residuals and best money factors. To...

she pulls in at 10 pm

Morning Crown is due at PH at 10pm PDT. I contacted my BMW GM and he says that she won't be unloaded until 8-25. So we're close, so close. I can smell that new BMW interior.
