Re: Order 2015 or wait for 2016?

I am leaning toward the 16. Since I'm ordering my price negotiation is going t to be limited vs. old stock sitting on a dealer lot. I can probably get the same discount off invoice on a 16 as a 15 - the only difference being whatever price increase there is.
I will almost certainly buy a full extended warranty at the best price I can find. Too many expensive systems on this vehicle and I will own past the factory warranty.

Thanks

Michelin Premier LTX

I don't think that's much of a difference at all

Goodyear Wrangler All-Terrain Adventure with Kevlar Black Sidewall with the ORAII package. That's a big step up.

Re: Order 2015 or wait for 2016?

I have those tires on my QX56 (18's) and I had them on my H3 (16'2). Great tires, IMO, really sticky in the snow. Pretty good ride on the highway too.

My wife has start/stop on Bimmer. At first thought it was stupid but now she nor I pay it any mind, plus you can take it off.

Re: Order 2015 or wait for 2016?

I got $5500 off MSRP on a 2015 KL.


The start/stop is a non issue. Start the vehicle and press a button to disable start/stop.


I will say it would have made more sense to default start/stop to off position on start and THEN let me select it if I want it, but turning it off on every start just becomes second nature. My settings are so that parking brake is set every time I'm in park (steep driveway). I hit start, release brake and disable start/stop.

Agree. Similar to the '14 ECO mode, which defaulted to ON

Re: Order 2015 or wait for 2016?

Everything looks like it'll be better on the '16 except that goddamn electric steering. I'd almost be tempted to forego all the other benefits just to avoid electric steering, but if you don't care about that, then no biggie.

re. the shifter, I don't understand the issue/confusion. I figured it out in about 5 min and absolutely love it, and my fiancee who is VERY technically and mechanically un-savvy figured it out in the first half hour, and neither of us has ever had an issue since. I love that shifter.

Re: Order 2015 or wait for 2016?

Why do you expect electric steering to be worse?
