But I got a Manual ZHP - I don't know if I will ever sell this car. I like the 1 series though as it's an attempt at an updated E30 which makes me moist.
New I definitely agree with you about the price, but used? Great price for the amount of car, in my opinion.

You're probably right, I never really looked at the CPO market.

Based on a quick search mid $30's still seems high to me for some reason, I guess I would expect the car to be lower $30's(which I'm sure you can get with some haggling )

I spent more than a few months searching around....there's definitely deals to be had. I was between two 2011 CPO's and had negotiated both of them down into the high 20's and settled on the black one.

I had to figure out something quickly. Most of the time we go without clothes around the house. We're sort of into the whole Mother Nature/back to the earth thing around here.

That's why I didn't stay longer ... it was a bit uncomfortable knowing that

Got it for a pretty decent price, especially considering that it's CPO and warranted until 2017 or 100k miles.

Most people here will prefer things in the Beeker flap style. The Crosby Diplomat is beautiful, but probably not worth it at a junior position (and might look bad in that scenario.)

And speaking of...if you can pass on discounts (while making worth your and your girl's time, of course) let me know.

I think dwass and I are the only people in this thread who could pull that off.

Dwass, because of his massive physique, and me, because IDGAF.

Ill ask my gf what she can do. She gets 50% everything but only has a certain annual allotment. But I'm sure she can do 25% all the time, though you would physically need to go into her store to get it (Santa Anita, so cal)
