I have the leather one on my 6+ I like it. Over priced, but I like it. It feels quality and gives you a much better purchase on the phone vs going naked. I don't fear it slipping out of my hands...

Interesting comments from a couple people. Since when has 12.7@108mph been considered "normal" and not very fast? And with a 130mph top speed it had better be a very long race for anything short of...

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.

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!

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...
