    You show you purchased an 08 535xi ? I'm on BMW's website and I'm already up to a car that's 66,100 and it is not fully loaded with only 18" wheels. That's without

    Active Cruise + 2,400

    Head's Up Display + 1,200

    Lane Departure Warning + 500

    Night Vision + 2,200

    = 72,400

    add 19" M Cross Spoke 101 Wheel Set +4,995


    How are you buying one FULLY LOADED for 60K ?

    Happy Fun StealthV left us over a year ago. Since then it has been annoying, condecending, complaing StealthV. Too much ski-doo fumes? I dunno.

    About the only thing he's got right in the last year, has been Pop-Tart Nav is Gey.

    Stealth will go through the euro stage and be back. It comes with age and wisdom when things are out of warranty. I've been there and back and decided no car is made for me, so I take the closet and make it work!

    Re: What GM should do to improve the 2009 CTS-V before final release

    All this is like a couple of guys arguing in a strip club over which girl to take into a VIP Room.

    "The Blonde is hot..."

    "No way man, the brunette is hotter.."

    "The blonde wants $200.00 to go into the VIP.."

    "The brunette told me she will go to VIP for $150.00 and promised a happy ending..."

    "Well the blonde has bigger air bags..."

    "Yeah but the brunette has a tighter rear end end assembly.."


    Blah blah blah...

    They are both hot, shut up and go to VIP already before the red head shows up and really blows your mind.

    In the end you will have spent alot of money and hopefully enjoyed yourself.

    You touch on a MAJOR issue for me. What do you do once these kind of cars are off warranty? I'm not talking the V2 specifically, I mean ANY of these ultra high-tech cars. I mean, you ever notice what happened to all the "semi" high-tech cars of the 90's? Owners bastardizing the hell out of them because they can't afford to fix them "properly", resale values in the toilet, etc., etc.

    The answer, at least for me, ... get a new one before the warranty runs out.

    Problem solved.

    Funny...I have never seen Pratt in any discussion having to do with technical issues what so ever? Why is that? He is touted as the greatest salesperson evar! Yet Never involved in discussions pertaining to the enthusiasts on this site having questions of a technical nature. Is it too much to wonder if he is indeed a know nothing sales person? In complete contrast to Tony who CLEARLY knows his stuff and spends a huge amount of his time to answer tough questions for us.
