I really would prefer the size of the 4.7" but the two main features I was looking forward to was battery life and the camera, which the 5.5" is a step or two above the 4.7, so I'll just have to get...

Sounds like a very good deal. I have the same term/mileage and sticker price was almost exactly the same as yours and paying $598. No trade-in but I put $2500 down.

These are the rumors I've been reading as well. 10 days after the announcement they'll be available. Hoping I can get my preorder in on the 9th though.

Nice, my 1 month old GS has this. I thought it was just a defect in the aluminum, didn't really bother me much but I'll get this addressed at my next service. Thanks for the heads up!

Agreed, seems like a huge waste of money, not to mention time spent at the dealership for incremental updates. Makes sense if it's a lease, but I'm assuming it isn't since he travels a lot and that's...

wow, you must have been pushing pretty hard to slice up the tires like that. Mine came with Dunlops too, I've done some spirited driving through back roads, but not quite up to your level. lol

Agreed. For me, I don't necessarily want something that's aiming to compete with an M5, but would like a GS that can go toe to toe with a 550i. That said, you're probably still looking at the 70k...

As to the reliability of German cars, I think they have come a very long way since 2000, and it wouldn't really be a fair comparison to judge them based on their reliability 1.5...
