But now you have to eat the same pills too soon. So come with me and give the ATS a look. Since most of the ATS drivers will be old, you actually will raise your status as someone making it earlier in life than those old farts.
On the bright side, now the "Luxury" 328i model is no longer the low man on the totem pole...the 320i is (Oh, I forgot the "no-line") I knew it was somewhere down near the bottom. The high school parking lots will now have lots of BMWs. But, that's not a bad thing at all. Many of those young drivers will be long term owners down the road.

Current Stablemates:
'12 Porsche 911 GTS Cabriolet (MT); '11 BMW E93 335is (DCT); '08 BMW E60 535xi
Favorite Cars Gone But Not Forgotten:
'09 Corvette ZO6; '04 MB S600; '01 BMW 740iL; '01 Corvette; '90 Nissan 300ZX 2+2; '89 Jeep Grand Wagoneer; '79 BMW 320i; '79 MB 300D; '71 Pontiac Firebird Formula 400; '67 MG Midget
