Agree with all of you, and from a knee jerk reaction, buying it is not a question. Cost impact is not all that great in that my X5, 4.8i will aid in defraying some of the expense, plus another "collector" that I am selling. Maintanance is not a question as the car will be long gone (replaced) by the time the warranty expires. Insurance, well, thats a cost of doing business (driving). But, (I know this is a BMW forum so please don't shoot) while I love my BMWs (note plural) anybody have any thoughts on:
Audi AWD, or the Mercedes E55 AMG. Simular cost, but I doubt simular performance, although the E55 AMG looks to be a close second.
Another question, anybody ever taken European delivery? Thanks, ZZ
