What I see on Bimmerfest is more and more people who seem to think they are somehow entitled to buy their BMW at invoice or below invoice. In the nine and a half years I've been here I've seen this...

That is so weird. They changed the ad overnight. When I looked they had 39 month leases advertised for March.
