Hans, if you do it right and know what you are doing, you are not taking a risk. The HELOC rates are far superior to BMWFS. Why get roped into a 7.9% rate over 3 years when I can better that by 3 points and use the cars equity to settle the loan in 3 years. I'm not moving or selling my home any time soon. As the fed lowers the rate to spark the economy, I will enjoy the low rate and my M3 a little bit more
I hope that none of you get hit by the AMT. It was just a consideration for someone who lives in a high local and state tax location with an eye for added interest deductions.
