What you want would be easy to find around here (DC/Baltimore/Metropolitan area). The only thing that might be a little harder to find would be the 20" wheels, most of the X5's that I see come with...

Yes it's really disappointing that BMW doesn't do the Priority 1 option of Imola Red for $2500 like they used to. I'd probably bite the bullet and go for a new one if that were an option.

If there were any doubt to my sanity, I think this pretty much resolves it.
