Whoa there man. I know for a fact that the UK is still a haven for
sarcasm (I'm an Brit living in San Diego - so I can't get hold of a
decent Peugeot...), so don't take the comments regarding the Toyota
too seriously. Everybody is entitled to an opinion, I just don't
happen to like Lexus' or Toyotas. I like Audis. Sue me for it. That's
why I stay tuned to this mailing list...I've even been accused of
trying to help out a few people on this list with their car problems.

Enjoy the BMW.
