: If I possibly could order one of the last MY00 540i/6 would that only be a mistake if reselling within a short period of time? Are there other reasons pro or con for buying 00 vs 01 (e.g. maybe insurance a little lower on 00)?

For the purpose you state, it would be a big mistake. Your new '00 car would be two model years old the instant the '01 hit the showrooms.

Only buy a '00 if you can save money and will keep it for at least three or more years.

My opinion is one should keep a car at least one year beyond the last payment, preferably more. The larger the down payment the better, complete cash is the best, if buying.

The only time to lease is for business use.
