I assumed that he was from New Zealand, where some variety of English is the lingua franca.

And, yet, in your utopia, the free schools have apparently failed to adequately impart the distinction between the words "their" and "there." :thumbup:

I'm 100% sure that I every 2-series window sticker that I've seen (for both 228 & m235) has said: "Engine: Germany" & "Transmission: Germany."

So, no, the N20 in the 228i is not from Hams Hall...

I considered both the 2-series and the 4-series, and I decided on the M235i.

First of all, I agree 100% with those who say that the 4 is a better looking car. Beauty is in the eye of the...

Did they give you any kind of compensation for the delay? Obviously, you were deprived of the use of the car for additional months as a result of the incident.

Hey, that was exactly my conclusion. I will concede that the 4-series looks better the 2-series, but the fact that an M235i can be had for basically the same money as a 428i makes this a no-brainer,...
