Anyone else get a pretty picture in the mail?

I received a nice copy of an original designer's rendering of the GT from BMW in the mail today. Not sure what the point is. The letter (addressed to me in person) talks about a tie-in with the US Olympic committee in 2016 but doesn't ask for money or market it and further.

The design drawing is interesting. You can see the GT in it but it has a much lower roof-line. I don't know how it would affect interior head room but it does look a little less frumpy. (And I mean that in the kindest way. I love the frumpiness of my GT.)

I guess it is just a nice gesture...

FWIW

I think they send one to all buyers...I got one, not sure how long ago - I bought my vehicle in 2011 and it's been awhile.

I guess that makes sense. But it has been over a year since I bought the GT.

I guess they wanted to make sure I was keeping it!
