Yeah, pretty much. For a while, she stuck to residential real estate, sort of "Normal Rockwell capitalism." But, that was a big PIA.

She's doesn't care about status symbols, except maybe...

Most leases are three years. Often a 36 month lease is cheaper than a 42 month lease. But, they were available for a short a term as two years. I think the minimum now is 30 months (2.5 years). ...

With all these Citi Sears MasterCard scams, I'll be way past $2k this year in total rebates.

I don't travel much, and when I do I prefer to do it by car.

The 2020 530e is the same base MSRP as the 530i.
