If you can afford to go during the week (i.e. you won't miss a week's worth of work), you can get over there round trip for about $500 if you know what you're doing (e.g. leaving on a Wednesday and coming back on a Tuesday). You'll likely run another $100/night in lodging, unless you stay in hostels.

I look at it as a paid vacation because you should be saving that money on the BMW regardless of how well you negotiate a car because I believe they knock off the money because the car is technically considered used, so they avoid taxes and other fees.

With BMW you get to take delivery in the new BMW Welt. The building is awesome. First, they will show you your car's features in a presentation with all the screens and tech awesome, then unveil the car on a rotating platform. You get the keys and do a lap around (inside the building, which is also a showroom and sort of a BMW mall) and roll down the ramp out the door.

Its AW with basic everything but M sport wheel M sport brake kit (Brembo) iPhone/Smart phone connections, an convenience keyless entry black entr. with the dark grey like trim. Everything is basic basically (no pun intended). I wanted it cheap an some what affordable. I plan on putting in some Cobra's an replacing the OEM shock/spring with what ever Dinan has. An of course Dinan Stage 2 flash an call it a race car I drive to work an class's.

EDIT: $700.33 round trip with Lufthansa (sp) from 9/29/09-10/06/09
Any one want to come?

Small and nimble, a good choice for a young dude.

I am looking to up size, but i am drawing a blank right now despite the fantastic discounts.

535 is near its end.

M3 is a bit douchebagy in Miami, plus i would need a traffic lawyer on retainer.

GS Hybrid? boring to drive.

The new E? MB has issues.
