Thanks GSD. I hope I'll be around a bit as well.
I love the Wagon, "Touring", models, but they are ridiculously hard to find in East TN. I began loking last year for my wife a 3 Wagon, and quickly learned that the Dealer in Knoxville wouldn't go very far at all to get us one, and since most of them seem to end up in California, Northwest, and New England. After he tried to sell me a loaner that had literally no option for like 37K, I said screw it and went and got my wife a new EX35. So I finally switched from the Knoxville to the Chattanooga BMW Dealer, and so far they are much more willing to work with me. The trouble is that with no dealerships carrying a Wagon in stock it is difficult to make a decision on purchasing one. All I have to go by really is pics and internet numbers. I have probably ran the comparison on Consumer Reports and Edmunds like a hundred times. That's why I was hoping to get a bit more info and feedback from members here. We'll see, thanks again.
