That's good to hear -- at first I thought it might be a sketchy negotiation tactic by the dealer... but I'm glad to hear that it's standard practice and I'm not getting screwed...

And you're right, I shouldn't let my emotions get involved during the negotiations --- but that's hard to do... I'd say that 98% of the reasons I'm buying a BMW is because of emotion -- the E90's make my heart go pitter-pat!
