None of those - go east, drive over the Grossglockner, and then go from the south end to Brixen.

It is a good step up by dealer (assuming they're at fault).

That said, they probably come out of it fine - I assume they'll get his "wrong" M3 for sale off the lot. Someone else will be happy...

Yeah, but for the same reasons people prefer the M2 to the M4, I'd prefer an M2 cabrio to an M4 cabrio.
