For some rim curb rash for my M3 I had been quoted $120 per wheel to repair. At $1,889, that would mean I could replace two damaged tires lets say at $300 each and have money for about 10 repairs during that period. Maybe you should ask your dealer how much is it to repair rim damage to see.

Seems you are set on that car and not doing ED, but let me be the ED "Devil's Advocate" before you pull the trigger. Sounds to me that if you spec the car for ED without the B & O you get a better deal and an unforgettable trip experience, plus the B&O does not add much to resale value to justify it, IMO. On the other hand, maybe you can make the argument that you don't care for the B&O and are considering to do ED instead and see if they drop the car in the lot price even further, use the leverage. Additionally, when you are paying this kind of money for a car, 1-3k here or there usually is not a deciding factor whether to do ED or not because it is more about the experience, if you have not done it you should seriously consider not missing this opportunity. If you have the bug for ED, you may be trading your car early to do it a year or two from now and get a big hit in depreciation too or may have to wait years before having the opportunity again. Therefore, after two ED's, I think it is a still a no brainer.

Food for thought if you are patient, let us know what you decide.
