Good point, and this is why I gave the car back to CarMax and not a dealer. There are so many dealer incentives to move new vehicles, that a $50,000 used X5 doesn't appear very attractive. They really didn't want my X5 35d back, regardless of how nice it was.

Gone, but never forgotten... my E70 X5 35d, E90 335i, E46 330i, E36 328i, E70 X5 3.0si, E53 X5 3.0i.
