Thank you! That's a really sexy color combination. The Snapper blue is fantastic, and I like the cognac color a lot. It's somewhere between Venetian beige and saddle brown

Not much in my test drive. They did do a pretty good job of eliminating understeer in the new model. My complaint wasn't that it felt nose-heavy, it was that it felt numb. It felt like a luxury car...

Got it. I was referring to the coupe, my bad. So if I wanted M Sport, I would need to M Sport + Premium Package + HK?

Am I reading correctly that, on a 430i, you now can't order H/K sound unless you get the Luxury Package? I'm not sure I'm following what the little "x"s signify. Seems really weird to not let you get...

That's what I thought too, but I've been crunching the numbers on this:

Insurance is $90/mo
Gas is $40/mo (low mileage)
Parking is $100/mo

So that's $230/mo. If I rented a car 3-4 times a...

Yeah, I don't "need" a car for transportation purposes. To the extent there's any "need", it's so that I have some way to escape the city, the office, and my job for a couple hours on Saturday and...

Smart thinking.

Is the current 2 being made through 2020? Do I have that right?

I don't think I'd be using the car professionally except on very, very rare occasions, so I think the rawer 2 is a better match for my needs than the 3. I wish that the lower dash were colored in the...

So, I realized that I can actually walk to work in a half hour. Uber back home in the evening would be about $160 per month. Insurance plus parking for a 2 would be about $200 per month.

Advice needed--owning a car in DC

My impression is that the steering got another refresh for '17s. My SA confirmed that he thinks so too. Comfort and sport are both heavier.

I think that's a little high mileage-wise to go for if you're driving that much per year. Others can chime in who have more experience, but my impression is that after 65k-80k miles or so, depending...

Too many red flags. Don't do this deal. Also, you should be able to get more than $500 off unless it's an extremely rare set of options. My parents just got a one year old C class with 12,000 miles...
