Update: Two purchases from Braman. First, I put on the BMW Performance Exhaust, and I love it! It is the right balance of sounds: when just cruising, it is quiet and just a nice low rumble, and when under heavy thrust it gives enough roar without sounding like every P.O.S. rice box. Braman gave me an awesome price.
Then, I finally got my "small BMW"....known more commonly as Mini. Got a C.P.O. Cooper S for my Daily Driver car. 2010, 11K miles, just enough options to make me happy (I have all the good stuff in my 135). Just as promised, the car is Go-Kart fun. I go back to get some Mini goodies to make the car really functional on the inside. The Braman C.P.O. Manager "Amit" and my Mini Motoring Advisor "Maurice" both busted their butts to find me a good car, and then a really nice interest rate.
I've said it before, I'll say it again. If you go to Braman, you will be happy. If you go to Holman, you will suffer, and I "might" have yet even more evidence on that soon.
As always, Braman!
