Well yes they are actually, thanks for noticing.

Things are pretty good in oil rich Alberta....and yes a Bimmer is pretty much on par with a Ford up here considering there are more Ford trucks that are worth as much or more than X5's, nevermind the 3 series/C class that make up the majority of BMW/MB sales. Full load Raptors or diesel F250/350's will run you well north of $60K up here with all the goodies.

Just because the farmers and oil guys choose to drive fully loaded Ford trucks doesn't mean they can't afford BMW's or Benz's.

Like I said before, they're just BMW's, not really much of a big deal.
