The good thing is that it is quite bit cheaper (64k MSRP - 12k in discounts/rebates) and the winter set was half that of the X3Ms. The seats are a lot more comfortable and they have a massaging function, which was the nail in the coffin for the X3M as far as my wife was concerned. It is actually somewhat fun/sporty to drive to.

Edit: Gruss, I believe the base money factor for BMW was .00142 or 3.4%. Higher than last month, but the rebates were higher as well. By the time you are ready Trump will most likely have trashed the economy and rates will be 0 etc.
If it makes a difference, I too now drive an Audi. I took over the lease of an S6...what a car. In the words of McDonalds, I'm lovin' it.

Perhaps that is why Lups has also stopped talking to me...maybe she sensed a disturbance in the force?

In my view, BMW has lost their way a little though, I used to be more in love with their models, but now, its really just the M brand and even then, not all of them. I do really want to drive the new M5 though - on paper I think I like it, but need some seat time to really see, but that is a model which excites me. Or maybe BMW hasn't changed and my tastes have as I get older...not sure.

I've tried to response to a couple of your PMs, but I can't because your inbox is full.

But, here is what I was going to send you.

www.audizine.com is the biggest Audi forum I believe. I really didn't know a ton about the S5 except for a few test drives (and actually Arcades reviews here). I and especially my wife always impressed with them. I researched enough to know what minimum level we'd want. In this case Premium Plus was it. Prestige gets you HUD and a few other things like that and is the top trim. My wife was just fine without that so we saved a few k. I'm unsure if S3 trim levels are the same, but I'm sure they are.

hey, for all my good friends here, we're all gettin older ... here's a youtube to watch on heart risk that I promise is a fun watch if you're remotely interested in your heart disease risk. It is, by far, the best summary of this massively complex topic I've ever seen. The guy really is a super fun speaker!

I know, I know ... but please just give it 5 minutes - really! If you're a 40+ dude (especially if you have kids) and not calling your doc for a CAC after this, you didn't watch it!

just 5 minutes to see if it's for you - might save your life - he's a fun speaker (to be fair, the key point is at 6:30)

"Hey so, you guys ordered these 737MAXs WITHOUT garbage in the fuel tank, right?"

Time:
Boeing said Tuesday that it found debris contaminating the fuel tanks of some 737 Max jets that it built in the past year but was unable to deliver to airline customers.

A Boeing official said the debris was discovered in “several” planes but did not give a precise number. Boeing built about 400 undelivered Max jets before it temporarily halted production last month.

The fuel tank debris was discovered during maintenance on parked planes, and Boeing said it immediately made corrections in its production system to prevent a recurrence. Those steps include more inspections before fuel tanks are sealed.
Who the hell would fly on one of these things??

It's not just these. The older next gen 737s are starting see a lot more fatigue cracks than normal.

The tanker based on the 767 the Air Force is getting, which won even though it is/was inferior already to the Airbus product..........is being delivered with all sorts of production issues. One of them being tools/debris/garbage in the walls and other places of the aircraft.

The Boeing Starliner failed rather spectacularly and now it appears SpaceX is going to beat them to launch NASA first astronauts in a decade or so.

This is just a few things that have gone public. Yah, they are a friggin mess to say the least.

If y'all come over forspirits and posole let me know the day so I can get someone to cover on call. I'll welcome you with open arms. You'll probably have to leave by about 9:30, and I won't check what you drove unless you want to show me

Come to repossess my forearms/ammo and the greeting will be significantly different

Did you drive it, what did you think of it? Knowing your tastes a little in cars, I have an idea, but I want to hear what you thought first.

Well, duh...if we repossess your forearms (not that I believe any of us had them in the first place), your arms are going to be significantly shorter, so I'd imagine the greeting would be significantly different.

On a different note, how would you feel if I took a few of your firearms? I'm betting you have some good stuff that I can't get up here in Canada.

I do want to try some posole though, I like most mexican food I've had. Want to send me the best posole recipe you like the most and I'll make it sometime so I can try it? Because otherwise I'm left searching the interwebs.

I guess they're having a janitorial problems. Besides this, the 767 Air Force takers had dangerous debris left inside their fuselages. You would think this would be more of a problem with Sukhoi then Boeing.

I love it. It was less than half the price of the Ferrari and feels faster.

So did you sell the 360 then? If so, what prompted that decision? If memory serves, I think the 360 was a tester car to see whether both of you liked Ferrari enough to sink in a bit more money to get a newer model (not new, but newer)?
