I think Sportsdad is referring to Virginia Thrasher who won gold in the 10m air rifle. Kim Rhode won a bronze in this Olympics.

I think the math is more like $8K to simply get out, or about $2,500 for suspension upgrades.

Then there's the hassle factor. What's your time worth?

I think that was true for some models (e.g. 550i), but not the 6-series.
