That's ridiculous too. I find most high end buyers like bitching about the price of gas just like everyone else. And I find I rather enjoy it when my 6 cylinder Porsche getting 19 mpg blows the doors off the Escalade in the next lane getting 12 mpg. It's a double win. And I'm not alone.
The topic was on the X6which gets the same mileage as a 911 with no storage and gets better mileage than any M car and the new M3's cost even more. I am not sure of your point. Not trying to be difficult but I don't see your post making sense.
