Hope that bitch is put behind bars.

Here she is:



and her real estate agent page:

apparently her ex-husband is no good either:

She obviously has money. You should consider a civil suit. If she files for bankruptcy she can't discharge any debts to you. Cops said she stunk of booze. They can test her blood after arrest. I don't think she can refuse.

So…

I was all set to go pick up a Range Rover Sport HSE Luxury on Friday morning to replace the totaled X5. But on Wednesday night I kept having second thoughts…

Why would I risk putting my 16 month old son in something other than a BMW? I knew the X5 likely saved my life and I loved it…

So…on Thursday I called several dealers and put a deposit on a Space Grey 2011 X5 3.5 to pick up the next day. Nicely optioned…nappa leather, leather dash, premium, convenience….

When I arrived at the dealer I saw my car waiting for me…and another Space Gray X5 right next to it. I looked at the sticker on that one…and it had:

PREMIUM PACKAGE
CONVENIENCE PACKAGE
COLD WEATHER PACKAGE
TECH PACKAGE
PREMIUM SOUND PACKAGE
CARGO COVER
COMFORT ACCESS
ADAPTIVE DRIVE****
LEATHER DASH
HEAD UP DISPLAY
MULTI CONTOUR SEATS
ROOF RAILS
REAR CLIMATE PACKAGE
HEATED REAR SEATS
AUTO HIGH BEAMS
SMART PHONE INTEGRATION
COMBOX
RUNNING BOARDS…

Basically, a loaded car…except this one was an X5 35d…the Diesel variant. So I asked my salesperson if I could drive it.

WOW…it was a beast. Felt like I lost nothing off the line from the X5 4.8 I was coming out of.

From a price standpoint…the sticker was an extra 10k, but I got the following rebates:

$2500 Holiday Cash
$1500 Voucher for participating in BMW Accident Research Program
$3500 off for the Diesel
$1800 Tax Credit
$1000 BMW CCA Membership Rewards program

With a lease based on 500 over invoice…it came out about even.

Now…first impression after driving it for one weekend:

Pro’s:
• The Diesel is a beast. Feels as Torquey as the old 4.8
• I never thought I’d like the drive of any SUV better than my old X5…but the “Adaptive Drive” completely changes the ride. No lean…muted bumps…it’s like driving a 3 series. I’d never again get an X5 without Adaptive Drive
• Love the Premium Sound and head-up display
• New I-Drive and NAV is a HUGE improvement over the awful old version
• 600 miles on tank of gas…is just awesome
• Auto High Beams is great out in the country

Negatives:

• Sounds like a paddle boat when idling
• Ugly 18 inch Wheels
• The diesel gas pumps all stink…I had to buy gloves
• I have a small scratch from the douches in my garage so I now need touch paint(I live in Manhattan, comes with the Territory)
• Can’t figure out how to setup mobile office with my blackberry
• Wasn’t impressed with the Nevada Leather last time, and im still not…

Thanks for the advice guys…I could not be happier…

Just reading this for the first time.

27 (montauk HW) is very scary for this very reason. Hope you all run her through the mill.

3rd offense means she truly does not care about anyone but herself. Take everything from her.

I'm glad you and your family are OK, and good job on choosing the diesel. New BMW diesels are truly great motors.
