7 ActiveHybrid gets some Government love
It's not much, but it's still money in your pocket
Thursday, the 2011 BMW ActiveHybrid 7 joined the ranks of the Mercedes-Benz R350 Bluetec and Volkswagen Jetta TDI as automobiles that qualify for the Alternative Motor Vehicle tax credit.
The cost savings on the 2009 model year of the former two: $1550 and $1300, respectively, for savings of roughly 2.9 and 5.6 percent.
And on the Bimmer? A $900 reduction, or -- make sure you have your calculator handy -- a savings of 0.9 percent.
As fans of the ActiveHybrid 7, we applaud the use of hybrid technology to improve fuel economy and performance. The $900 should come in handy to defray the cost of the optional power-operated rear-seat sunshades.

That is some nice info.
The active hybrid also is supposed to be as fast as the V12... not sure if I believe it but that is the rumor.Chrome Space Bar Issue: http://www.boostaddict.com/showthrea...338#post738338

I may have to put up my local BMW dealership to find out.
