It will be of interest to compare BMWNA's current tactics to the Mini case in PACER, e.g. did BMWNA also attempt to drag out at that time, and did Judge William Walls call out BMWNA for that tactic?

It looks like BMWNA wants to dig in and drag out, the judge can still enforce 30 days to complete accelerated discovery, right?

That was a pivotal moment. Just say that M3 2 decades ago, plus maintenance + repair, costed $120k total, or $200k pre-tax. That $200k could have grown tax deferred to another $1m, or $600k after...

This outdated article from 2014 says 314 IRAs have more than $25m, for a total of $81B(not a typo). Apparently Romney is not alone, esp. 2014-2020 has seen great asset appreciation.

My current thought is that 401k mainly squashes present consumption, such that IRS has income to tax in the further.

E.g. just say 4 back-to-back F30(e.g.) leases cost $80k, and a F30 kept 12...

$38k MSRP base 28i to $55k 35i loaded overlap with 3-series prices, so the price points are not too attractive.

My guess is that this GC(US xDrive only) should drive similar to X2 xDrive, which...
