Yup. It's like telling the dealership that you want to go to aliston to pickup your dream corolla.

Not sure how that would work.
PDI would still need to be performed by the dealerships.

How come they can't do it at the factory?

And what's wrong with that?

in Canada, PDI is done at dealerships.
in US, PDI is done at the port (hence PDI in the US is cheaper).

I would assume it's a liability thing.
The dealerships here would need to PDI the cars themselves so they are not liable for any issues afterwards such as scratched paint, curbed wheels, etc.

I've only test driven one. It's a quick little thing. Compared to the E9x 335i it is quieter and smoother, and turbo lag is not nearly as noticeable.

Another alternative is the M240i.

Well I bit the bullet, returned my 16' 428 gc lease after 15 months and into 17' 340i.

I took a hit on the trade in but healthy factory credit offset the cost with 0.15% loyalty interest to boot and 54% residual for 39 months.

YOLO! Lol

No change to the engine though. Just change styling and interior wise, mainly.

0.15% loyal interest or loyalty rate deduction? How long is the lease? What % discount and final payment?

I didn't end up going, I checked out some online inventory and nobody around has the options I wanted...maybe wait til December or June next year for the best BMW deals..
