    Only 1 pack in NYC. $9.50 a pack.

    Maybe 2 in Philly if they are on sale for under $5.00:nonod:

    Still a lot of money for a 4-cyl.

    It's smart marketing. Rather than a tank of gas, much more expensive, they went with 10 bucks off. Savvy marketing in my book, it's really gonna pull them in!!

    If you really love this car.... buy one when it comes off a 36 month lease. Waaaaaay better deal. :)

    Want a shocker, look at a used Lotus Exige S . The price has gone UP on used ones. I was thinking about an Exige S 240, but they're appreciating, and I suspect they'll depreciate significantly when the new Elise/Exige rears it's new Lambo face. Worst time to buy one ever.

    Cayman S can be had reasonably...

    528 is a pig. No getting around it.

    The Exige think is remarkable. I too have followed them for the past year. The 240S has went up about 10 grand and the 260S (if you can find one) has increased close to 15 grand. I should have bought one a year ago.

    Haven't they quit importing the Elise/Exige??? I think they have, which is why the used ones will now cost more.. As CHKMINI said, should have bought one a year ago.. I just can't justify paying close to 30,000 or more now for an '06.. In orange of course..

    Back on topic. BMW must love the 4 cyl. Comes standard on quite a few of their cars. The other crazy thing is the 2 series and 3 series both start at 33 and change for their base models. Both use the 4 cyl as their base engine, but the 2 series base model has more HP then the 3 series base model.. Figure that one out!!!

    The exige was built, but not street legal for the U.S. after 2011. It, and the Elise, are coming back, street legal, with a ton more power--and weight--next year. Not interested in the new ones, still considering a used one.
