After weather and scheduling delays my client finally took delivery of her E91. BMW of the Main Line was nice enough to drive it all the way to Baltimore. The car only has 423 miles...yes, you read that correctly. Apparently the story with this particular BMW is the dealership purchased it as a "mechanic training" car. Techs from other dealerships would tweak, test, and drive it for professional development. Now I am not one to toot my own horn but this particular sale bears some reflection. My client was driving possibly the most least Jalop car: a Toyota Highlander Hybrid, she is now driving a very Jalop car....BMW...manual....RWD....wagon! When I looked there was about 57 manual BMW wagons for sale in the entire USA. I don't know how I am going to top this one. But I guess I should stick around a little longer and try. :D
I get an email that a "contact" form has been submitted on my website. I get a second email saying my Package 1 was purchased (by the same person). Package 1 is a personalized evaluation and vehicle location service. I thought it was strange that the customer paid for a service without taking advantage of my "free consultation." So I call the woman up to make sure she understands what she is getting. During the course of the conversation she says "Well, I have this Highlander Hybrid that I am kind of sick of...I would kind of like a wagon...in fact I would really like a manual wagon. I know BMW used to make a 3-series with a stick. Do you think you can find me one?"
...within minutes I was able to locate an E91 within a few hours drive. She is going to look at it tomorrow!
