Mine's on the 15th of March :laughing:. I am in the same boat, but I am saving up to get my new 790i which I hope will be out by then, if I was you, I would wait to see what the 9 series has in store for us.

Open a bank account and save the money you dont use, if you dont already have one. Its not smart to spend money if you really dont need to spend it.
