^ ... that's because Markham has lots of Chinese, esp. from Mainland who brings suitcases of cash and ready to buy at MSRP. Smiling Face With Open Mouth And Smiling Eyes
I'm quite sure they sell more M cars than anyone else.

Perhaps more M3/4 to the kids who asked their parents for them. I still think BMW Toronto + Parkview outsells TCBMW in M cars as a whole.

In Markham, I see lots of X3/x5 and your typical 3/4 series.

You're probably right. I see quite a few X5/6 M cars from Parkview and Toronto. I think Parkview and Toronto sell the the higher end vehicles. X5 50i, 540, 340, 440, X3 35i, people there tend to option those cars up to the gills.

First off, haven't posted here on RFD for a while, apologize in advance if this is not the right thread for my question.

I am helping a friend installing a dashcam in her 2014 X3 F25, tried many different fuses, but none seem to work the way I wanted to. I would like to set it up so it only powers up the dashcam when the start button is pushed. I have a micro add-a-fuse kit cable, but it seems that the power outlet fuses are all always on, meaning they do not disconnect when the car stops. The fuse box diagram that came with the car is not so descriptive, and is very hard to understand what each of them mean.

Does anyone here knows which fuse would work? Many thanks in advance.

better do a separate new post/thread ... to get a wider audience feedback.

So what would a reasonable discount on a well-optioned 2018 X5 be? Would it be higher or lower if it was a diesel or their 40e PHEV? Or the same discount can be had regardless of powerplant?

Both those other models will have to be ordered very likely. Most common model on the lot is the 35i

18, I suspect 4-5%
Thanks, guys. And is Budds in Oakville easier to discount or harder?

Since you are not asking beyond 6%, I think you can still negotiate with budds. Just watch out the bogus fees.

If you gets nowhere, then try others

I've never heard of Oakville being particularly easy but I would start close to home and work your way towards Toronto. Also push for 6% if you can; the finance/lease terms for the X5 were never good so save where you can.

For owners that got a new BMW, did you have any issues with the 12 month SiriusXM free trial? Did you have to contact SiriusXM yourself to have it enabled? Mine ran out 35 days after taking ownership and the dealer is not helping and playing dumb.
