"They mark up MF in light of the discount?" And you believed them?

All those so-called lease quotes include a SIGNIFICANT Cap Cost Reduction, ranging from $1,500 to $4,000. On a 24 month lease,...

I think you have the dubious distinction of being the first, at least on this board. Good luck. Hopefully they put you in an entertaining loaner.

It's the type of question folks have been asking ever since I started driving BMW's. First South Africa, then Graz, then South Carolina, now South of the Border. Whichever way the OP answers, it's...

For that matter, neither is depleting your cash position. We used to routinely advise clients to keep 6 months living expenses in cash. Now? It's 12 months.

Your glass is half full. You are okay, and you will be car shopping in a month where there are incredible incentives. Nothing else really matters.

Believe it or not, there is an advantage to a small dead spot. Imagine you are on the autobahn doing 200 kph and sneeze (Gesundheit!) Laser crisp steering could put you into the guardrail.

Would a burned out bulb be too obvious? If the bulb is fine, probably corrosion on the switch.

First, that's not a $45,000 loss as you claimed.

Second, I cannot imagine spending close to $70,000 on a 4 cylinder BMW. Are you that rare BMW driver who paid MSRP? If so, that is hardly the...

Well good for you. By the way, MSports actually DO have a different suspension than non-MSport vehicles. Yes, the 704 MSport suspension is not as hard core as an M5's. But you are incorrect in...
