3.) If all else fails get a quote from a BMW independent shop.

Re-read this thread. Be prepared and let them know you are very ready to move to option #3 listed above. This, I found, was crucial to my success during negotiations. An independent mechanic can be very important leverage - and be prepared to spend the $$ to get closer to the truth. The dealer and BMWNA does not want this!!
Do not accept the first, second or even third offer. See option #2
Thanks. So did you keep the car and if not what did you replace it with?
e46 330ci, sport package. (sold)
e70 N63, M adaptive suspension.
