i think the seating position and view out of the cars are very different comparing a gallardo and a sedan. also, in vancouver, even with a few nice cars, you do get way too many unwanted attention in exotics, not just the first 10 mins of driving. the annoying as you have people slowing down to check out your car and completely blocking you to exit or merge.Aric said:i never heard anything like that. u sure u order the M5? maybe ur dealer got mixed up and thinking u ordered the F430 or the coming gallardo roadster. hmmm
i was just at the dealership late yesterday and no one mentioned anything like that to me. or maybe my dealership just suck up the cost? imagine how many people will want to get their deposit back when they hear this.
on a side note, my friend just traded his F430 for a gallardo few days ago (dont ask why he do that, it was a slip of mind). And i had the gallardo for most part of yesterday to feel what a high performance V10 feels like. My conclusion is, if the M5 is really as fast as in the video against the gallardo, I need the M5/6 NOW!! The power is so addicting on both cars. The F430 has probably the sweetest engine sound whenever i try to step on the pedal a litl harder. The gallardo is so easy to drive and you have to look at the speedo to know how fast you are going. most of the time, u just hear that very low mumbling from the engine. also, driving the beast in the rain isnt a big problem neither. The E-Gear feels smoother than my M3 SMG, so i assume the M5 should be at least as good. My only complains are
1. my back hurts like hell after driving in the rock hard seat(even worse than the F430). i have to sit almost perfectly straight so it will hurt a litl less.
2. amount of attention is actually quite annoying after the first 10mins. some drivers were honking me and giving me the thumbs up. i think my driving experience told me to look around and be cautious when you hear the honk, not to look around and see people waving at you. ??????
3. the trunk(if that's the right word), is a joke. i dont know how many of you have seen gallardo's "under hood storage" or a pic of it. i can fill it up with 2 17" laptops and that's it. and that's with the divider in the middle. so, forget about buying ANYTHING and trying to put it in that car.
I guess it's a special car and u arent supposed to drive it everyday?? oh well, i just cant wait to get the M5 or M6 to solve those problems. :haha:
either you don't read the thread or you are still zzzzzHit_Apex said:Not sure why you suggest BMW Canada Inc is even involved in how dealers manage demand. I'm thinking your particular dealer has established an internal policy and the salesperson is passing it off as a BMW Canada Inc thing.
Aren't dealerships in Canada franchises like here in the US? If so, BMW should have no interest in how a particular dealer decides to manage demand.
I think the cigars you are smoking are not 100% legal eitherzzzzzM! said:either you don't read the thread or you are still zzzzz
overall i think it would be a better policy for the actual buyer than franchises stocking up on their own M5's and then demanding ransom $20k markups as you have in So Cal.
