Mein Auto: 435/x3 35
Ordered 2012 535i M Sport

Just to say hi and that it looks like I will be joining the F10 club in 60 or so days. With all of the incentives and a generous trade allowance it made sense for me to place an order for an F10. It looks like it will be a nice change from the E60..not better just different. I just hope I get the Dunlop tires and not the Goodyears.

My specs:

Alpine White
Black leather
Anthracite Wood
6 MT
M sport
Heated seats
Navigation

Mine came with Michelin Primacy HPs. No issues so far (~750 miles in).

Those are good as well. Seems like anything but Goodyears will be fine.

Thanks for the info Needs. Your information and active posting here helped to shape my decision to order a 2012 over taking a 2011 being offered way below invoice.

Well my car buying saga continues. After placing my order I dropped by the dealer to drop off a credit app and deposit check. The sales manager says before we put the order in the order bank I would like to see if I can convince you to buy the 2011 on the showroom floor. I said no thanks, but I ll order it and pay more. He says what would it take. I said well if it was x amount of dollars then I would be stupid not to do it. After about 30 minutes he comes back and says I will do it for x amount of dollars. I thought he was joking, but he was not. So after it was all said and done I got a 2011 for approximately 11k below MSRP. With me driving 30k miles a year I would be stupid to pay more for a 2012. They have about 4 6 speed manuals left in stock and they want them gone. I can't believe that I will be paying just a few dollars a month (payment) more for my new 2011 than I paid for my CPO 2008. Wow. Just wow. Anyway, new car is Black over oyster, 6MT, sport, premium, navigation, SIRIUS. It is official now...papers are signed and I pick her up in a couple of days. Time to change my sig. Also, car has Dunlops on it.

LOL, that's how I ended up with my car. Threw out a stupid offer that I didn't think they would ever match and they called my bluff. Whoops!

Enjoy!

Whoops is right. But we both made out well and got a great car too. Mine actually looks just like yours on the outside except yours is grey and mine is black.

Thanks Kamdog. It really was just that...the right place at the right time. I thought I would miss my E60, but at the price I got I know I will not.
