Nope. They are different options but I would like to know the difference between both?

It has both.
So what does low beam assist mean?

It's called adaptive headlights here and we have this!

Back to the topic of who does & who does not have cars to sell:

"BMW will have the configurator up this month, and you can order a car that will be built starting in January". - This is according to "my" BMW salesman, (actually the local sales manager). I have always looked at the G70 as an alternative to the new BMW 3 Series, the G20. and I have thought that I would be fine paying $3-5K more for the Bimmer, but that a difference of more than 5K would make the Genesis the better value. But if the Genesis isn't even available??????

FWIW, I think that $3-5K difference will come back in resale, and the return percentage may well be even better.
Will the BMW be sold as a 2019 MY or 2020?

I’m feeling the same way. I had already written the 3 series off for a few reasons, but that was when I was getting the G70 in July. Now it’s just a race to see what actually ends up on a lot that I can take immediate delivery of.

An equivalently equipping BMW will be close to $20k more. Get real people.

Richmond, VA update.

FINALLY have a dealer that has their VA Franchise License and a Genesis Dealer Code. They should be ready for inventory immediately. In theory.

It is Genesis of North Richmond...which is the same owner as West Broad Hyundai. From what I am hearing...the old Maserati/Alfa Romeo building will be Genesis.

Still waiting for the South Side dealership (Pearson) to get their crap together.

Not necessarily. We have compared #'s on used BMW 5 series compared to used Genesis. A equally equipped 5 series was about $10k more than a 2015 Genesis, but are only bringing $2-3k more on the used market than a Genesis. 3 series might be different though. Imagine there is more demand for a 3 series than a 5 series.

I think your $20K is high, but we'll all know more when the G20 configurator finally comes out.

GarnetTy, thank you for your input.
You have to take every little thing into consideration. New BMW will not be below MSRP. Extra for nice paint...3 year scheduled maintenance...every single option. The S4 Prestige was right at $20k more. The BMW will be more than $20k...willing to put money on it.

Ok...so I took a 2018 340ix and configured it the best I could to a G70 Sport AWD. Came to $65k.

Not sure what I was thinking. Perhaps I got confused between the S4 Prestige...and probably an M3 (which is a ton more).

Oh well...$12.5k more. Slower car though ;) But...who knows how much more the 2019 car will be.
