rgzimmer is an unknown quantity at this point
Just purchased an 04 E46 convertible this past Thursday and now I can't get over how much I love this car! I actually look forward to taking the long way home from work now just because it has open roads.

I just placed an order for the convertible alarm system and a couple of other accessories from Pacific BMW because of suggestions from this forum. My salesmanis about the most clueless BMW salesman I've ever met. He didn't even know what a wind deflector was for a convertible until I explained the concept to him. I even had to ask for the memory settings to be enabled because apparently he has only been a BMW salesman for three weeks and no one had asked for them before. (Apparently he came from a Toyota dealer). I can't complain too much, though. He was so intent on making the sale with a nice fat bonus for screwing me on a lease that I got the price down to $1200 below sticker and also got exactly what my trade was worth. When we were ready to close the deal, I told him I had my own financing and that it was only $25 more per month than the so called great lease he was offering me. :nana But that's another story ...

My question for all of you is which do you think is a better deal? Bluetooth or BWM Assist? I think it's sad that the car can't have both, but the idea of being able to use my regular cell phone in the car is pretty enticing. I signed up for the free year of BMW Assist, but other than the security of 24/7 montioring for accidents and one touch roadside assistance that I may or may not ever use, I'm not sure what the benefit is. I'll probably never use the concierge service, but I use my cell phone every day.

Any thoughts or comments?

bluetooth is sweet... i like the concept, and you can keep your cell and upgrade it in the future and you can still use it with your car. eventually BMW assist will become outdated like the old built in cell phones that only support analog

Congratulations on a beautiful new car!

Love the story about the salesman/dealer getting screwed.

Always best to have your own financing set up.

Sorry about your question though, I have no idea. Someone should though.
