Re: This looks rather expensive

My BMW was a 100k car, but I paid only 2k for it when it was 10 years old.

it's more likely a database issue with some garbage in the pricing field.

BMW are less generous with discounts on i models than normal ones.
Discounts are on the Ms, they cannot get rid of them fast enough

Hey, it's BMW so it's worth it.
What's so great about a BMW? Besides being rear wheel drive and getting a free repair kit. Or is that not done anymore?

I take most of turns with the right foot lightly on the gas, just to keep the momentum. I loooooove the handling, even at legal speeds.....well, 10+ legal

Also, not that many options out there for a 2+2 hard-top cabrio. Ferrari is nice but I cannot afford it know. So, my BMW is a keeper, first thing I do when the leasing ends is installing a manual transmission and visit dÄHler to see what they can do.

Re: This looks rather expensive

amusing, I avoided the 4 cabrio because it was a hard-top, now the MY21 is ragtop I will most likely take the 440x when my lease ends With the fleet discounts and cunning, the prices don't vary that much on a lease

Swiss way of writing that, 99,9 k CHF
Yep, German price would be 99'899.99. Swiss don't bother with Rappen and therefore don't fall for this age-old trick.

People have opinions. Heard and read a lot about the extra weight of the retractable hard-top. Not sure if the discussion makes any sense because the M4 cabrio is not a track car, it's only a damned fun grand tourer. Nothing more, nothing less. The track car is the M4 GT3.

I actually don't care about the weight, it's well-handled and the x-drive version is also carrying extra weight. it's the looks that I can't go for.

That's on the basis that I've had cloth-topped cabrios constantly since around 1997. It's just a personal preference

I see. The best look is open, either metal or textile roof one are compromises
