Sounds good! I still cant believe the deal you got on yours, all they would give me was the original msrp without any discounts and he said he was not marking up the price due to the price increase but I told him that we made the deal in MAY way before and he was making it sound like he was doing me a favor... I dont know I still feel raped...

The only reason I am debadging my car is to make it easier to clean.

clarification

When you use the term debadging, it implies that you are removing the badge, or are you able to order the car without the badge ever being put on the car. How is the badge normally afixed? My 330xi is set for ED on Nov 3, and if I can get it without the badge that would be great. I prefer the look, which as others have said, is the only reason for not having the badge.

Dental floss and a bit of warmth from a hair dryer will get it off real easy. There's just a bit of adhesive that feels like a smei-dry booger.

I don't get this, everyone thinks that all wheel drive is not important on an e90, but when i was looking at an Audi A4 2.0t, quattro was absloutly as nessery as leather, from what everyone told me. With audi, quattro is a thing of pride, something that you want everyone to know that you have. With the bmw its the exact opposit. maby it just seems this way to me.

In a nutshell:

Audi's heritage is in rally racing, where the roads are dirt, loose gravel etc, so Quattro (tm) helped them win many races and put Audi on the map.

BMW's heritage, on the other hand, is in regular road and F1 racing, so weight (or lack of it), balance, and engine power is more important.

Different tools for different purposes.
