Your post, in a nutshell, is exactly why BMW dealerships make me absolutely cringe. I was lucky to find a good one, but that was the exception and not the rule.
Continuing your logic, would it be acceptable to "nickle and dime" on a flagship if not an entry level car? Wouldn't your comment then be, "stop nickle and diming them on such an expensive car - you can afford it." I'm thinking there is no logical end to your thought or comment, though it might have sounded good to yourself when you typed it.
OP - keep shopping, someone out there knows how to do business and keep customers for the future
That's what I'm talking about (in case I needed another proof that I'm not crazy)!
