Many of the listings on cargurus were not BMW dealers, and included sedans and coupes. The certs were priced higher (as you would expect), and seemed to be on market for less days.

Phil

Phil is a great asset to the golf profession. He is not a hot head that goes off after a bad shot, and seems to keep his emotions in check. I'm glad to see him win!!!
