In a year of selling BMW products only twice have I discussed the value of a twin-scroll turbo setup combined with infinitely variable valve timing and lift.

Also, people don't even drive on your lot if in their head it is not a "good car." It's not the salesperson's job to prove this. This is why companies like Jag/Land Rover and VW are still selling cars. Perception.

Good point. When I upgrade to a BMW M3 (yeah right), I'll head your way. Thanks for the conversation....it's always good to see the other side of the coin.
