Very nice!!! I'm ordering a 535i on Saturday. If you don't mind me asking, what % did you get below the MSRP?

what would have the cost difference been if you went with a 550i...you get some discounts on the packages. Looks like you are fully loaded
I wonder if the difference will get close enough that a 550i is almost a no-brainer

The price difference was still over $6,000. and I personally love the inline 6, its plenty of power for me and gets reasonable gas mileage. This way I could get more goodies and stay within my target price, plus I get better looking rims in my sports pkg and I like the round exhaust tips better too.

Based upon the info provided on this board, I did a preliminary estimate and found that a comparably optioned 550i is about $5-6000 more than the 535i. So, IMO, purchasing seems to make the 550i the better deal (ignoring the resale value), and leasing seems to make the 535i the better choice. At least for me.

I fully understand and agree. Nice performance and more toys.

My lease is up in Jan 2011. I am likely not going to get another 6(love it but I love my money more).

So I am looking to see where I go...M3, 335is, 535 or 550i.....

Great color combo. Were you able to order the Anthracite headliner?

I was not aware of an Anthracite headliner and since the car comes with a Oyster headliner, I was happy with the combo as it matches my combo. My E Class has an Oyster headliner and I like it.
