Agreed 1000%

I sort of ordered my E46 that way. I emailed about 10 dealerships asking for their best price over ED MSRP. 1 replied. I took the deal.

Most won't work that way though. It's so dumb.

That's my current plan, but I'm going to let it sit for a while and see if I change my mind.

In the mean time, if anyone wants to borrow it for a test drive....
