I'm finding that the '17 to '18 price protection on a 540i to be something other than a straight line process. With the changes in packages and package inclusions, it's a challenge to order a truly equivalently equipped '18 while knowing that you are getting "'17" pricing. I'm hoping to hear about a solution on a now-reconfigured vehicle. Hoping to get an order locked down this week.
