I'm still calling the 135i a huge bait n switch car, to get people in a 3er. Only for the reason of the ED allocation issue, and the limiting of 1er allocations overall for the US.
how do you really feel... lol
there's no extra work involved.. and it is money.. not to mention.. there will be a much higher demand for cars on the ground and taking care of the lesser of two evils is the key point here.. satisfy the greater need..
I still agree with you... I just have to be realistic about it now so when the time comes i can explain this to my clinets early on i guess.
