Thanks for the quick reply!

So in your opinion if i can get the mf down a bit it should be good to go?

Also is the Sport automatic transmission with shift paddles worth the 500?

If you're actually going to manual shift a lot I'd say so. Keep in mind I went with the 6MT though.

yea, get the mf down, and the sport auto is a no brainer imo. shifts are so fast.

I have the sports auto, if you can't go 6-speed, it's the next best option.

Aside from the paddle shifters. Is there a noticeable difference in how the gearbox reacts when driven in automode? Or the sports part is that it has paddles?

This reminds me of a quote I read once in another forum, from a self labelled enthusiast:
" I shift with pedals, not paddles "

Do you all think they can do better? They said it is 1k over invoice
Does that payment include tax?

It's seems it's not that far from $1000, but I guess the car has other goodies aside from the ones you listed. Check out BMWConfig.com to find out MSRP and invoice. The equipment list you provided doesn't add up to $52k

MSRP is high.
Make sure they itemize all the inception fees (I asume the $2500 is going towards those, and not to cap reduction?)

" I shift with pedals, not paddles "
when you kick the active suspension into sport or sport + modes, it will shift much quicker and aggressively. In comfort, Eco modes, it's very subtle and more like a standard auto.

The shifting in sport mode is pretty good, responsive and quick. I didn't even consider autos when i was shopping, and ultimately went with the sport auto over a manual solely based on price, but I did not feel I was giving up so much that I wouldn't be happy.

As for the paddles, IMO they are gimmicky, but an option nonetheless. To compare it a manual is unfair, there is no comparison. It's a compromise if you cannot get the 6-speed, and still want some interaction with the vehicle.

Here is an update.

At the time of the orig quote they had not run my credit. My new mf is .00135

Orig configure - 49448

The payment does include taxes or you can say the upfront $2500 covers them.
Acq fee 750
Doc fee 200

---------
So end result
$2500 @ signing
627 a month unless I add the sports transmission (which I am) they quoted me $465 for it

It doesn't look bad 1k over invoice + 200 doc fee = 1200 over invoice though.
