Oops I thought it was $38.5k since it said no haggle price. I have no idea now.

Plus around $2k for the extended all-inclusive prepaid maintenance plan. All in, it was around $42k out the door.

It's all about the ratio of income to outgo.

A $275 a month car payment would have been INSANE when I was a paperboy.

Now, $750 for a bottle of vodka seems reasonable.

OP: Beautiful car. Great color combo. I hope you enjoy many years of trouble free driving. You did the right thing getting a CPO and extended maintenance IMHO.

I'm a self admitted energy geek

Firstly, i didn't get BMW financing. I got local financing for 1.74% and only financed for 4 yrs. I generally like to but a large down payment. I hate debt and we are all different. Funny that i hate debt and work for the federal govt.

I live in Texas but the energy is a little higher than the 0.08 number after you take into acct all of the fees. More like 10.5 cents but that is a far cry from 32 cents or whatever Dave quoted.

Secondly, better way of looking at energy use is just that. Look at things in terms of kw-hrs, not dollars spent. My home is quite small compared to you guys. It is paid for though. Before all of the energy saving investments, my home would use ~17,000 kw-hr per year. Now, it uses about 6,800 kw-hr per year. Keep in mind the crazy Texas summer. Highest electric bill this summer... get ready... only $136 for 869 kw-hr usage. I'm a single dad and a sub 2000 ft^2 home for me is plenty.

Single most important energy saving investment was a high efficiency A/C (at least in Texas). I did this in 2005. R50 insulation in attic. Radiation barrier in attic's ceiling. Double pane windows. yadda yadda yadda. Winter time usage about 280 to 300 kw-hr per month.
Dave, congrats on the purchase.

Not for me. A $20 pizza still seems just as overpriced now as it was when I was in high school (with inflation its even a lot cheaper now ). That runs in the family though, I was brought up with the idea that the size of your bank account doesnt change the value of a specific item. A $20 bill is worth $20 whether you only have one more or 1,000,000 more

I guess since my family was so poor when I was a kid, we developed a sense of the value of time as opposed to money. I always think in terms of the value of my time. If I can earn 25 times the amount in an hour that it costs me to hire someone else to do something for me...like make me a pizza...then it makes no sense to make the pizza myself. Unless I really enjoy making pizzas.

Anyone who details their own car can relate to that.

Again, I go back to the idea that we are all very different here. But we have at least one thing in common. A passion for cars that makes us want to talk about them with strangers.

So in the end, we are all a bit silly.

It's a bit like any passion (Italian opera, running, cars, experience living in a certain part of the world, baseball player, lifting weights, F1, and on and on)---when you you find someone who likes to talk about it at about your level, it's so great. Everyone else's eyes start to glaze over pretty fast.

Thumbs up DaveN007's killer 335d

Dave,

I love your 335D - its got the perfect options. One question that I have is I've never seen one with that black fascia on the rear where the exhaust is. What option package is that a part of? Let me know when you are tired of that car!

OP, excellent D. Enjoy the car, it's awesome. Your favorite time spent during a typical day would be when you are driving it. (Mine is )

Looking at the side discussion of monthly payment makes me feel better about my current payments, though im in a more screwed up scenario than almost everyone on this board to land this kind of payment per month with a lease but I love bimmers, am single with a while before marriage... so I am spending the wife money on myself. (Wife money is the money you spend on wife, kids, etc that would go into savings if you're single.)

Nice discussion on houses, electricity too

Is it black or is that the lighting against your white car? On my black one with M sports package it looks more dark grayish.
