RIP, Google send-to-car for my pristine, less than 30K miles 2012 F30 335i. It died today. And I guess BMW doesn't give a damn about me for the future. Man, I love my car -- but I hate the way BMW...

I am not surprised that ED pricing is becoming less competitive. With the euro down so much against the dollar, BMW might have to hold pricing as level as possible for the vast bulk of its business,...

It's no bother -- but I don't think you get it. You can't build an MY15 order until the 2015 ordering guide is available. That's how you know what's changed. If I were you and I wanted an MY15 ED,...

All good points -- I agree with everything you say, Boraxo.

Why not simply say, as I think I did, that ED price is just as negotiable as any other?

Market conditions, the buyer's preferences...

Well, that's a great story -- and another example of how ED is an exceptional program.
