My 135i was on the same boat, Phoenix Leader. My dealer emailed me and said it should be here in San Francisco tomorrow. I wonder if 2 days is a record?

Dealer wheel protection: $1049. Too much?

After searching other posts it looks like the going rate for tire and wheel protection, even from the dealer, should be less than $1049. I want to get it but not at that price.

This would be for...

Glad I decided against ED

Ever since I got my production number I have been:

I actually pulled the trigger, but decided on US delivery. As far as the PDC, I would have said the same thing as you two years ago. Then I moved to San Francisco.

Thanks for the quick response confirming. Assuming nothing is added, do I need anything in writing regarding the agreed to sales price, or am I probably pretty safe?

I thought of the same thing. That would have to be on the assumption that the clutch wouldn't burn out before the lease end. The main motivation for me is to get the AT is your third sentence. :)
