BMW LETTER

Just received a letter from BMW telling me they are very interested in my vehicle to appraise it. 2016 X5M, mineral white /red interior. Just a way to get me into a newer vehicle? What do u think. They also wrote that there inventory is low.

It's a ploy to get you into another car.

Classic move.

Thanks for responses, especially yours violator. Here I sit while writing this thinking that somehow the cosmos shifted and I became special or entitled.

I got a similar letter on my 2015 (47k miles) that probably have between $7-10k of equity built up on a custom build that I've had minimal issues with.

They can get me into a brand new 2018 off the lot (and I checked their inventory) that doesn't spec out for me options and color combinations ... Get this ... For $200 more a month.

Oh and I also have an Invisihitch installed on mine.

Thanks but no thanks.

Literally got a call from a guy after having mine in for service this past week saying how interested they are in my special car and high offer they're prepared to offer. Puke.

So are our beasts so amazing or do they want to make a quick buck off of us?

I venture to say both 😊
