Sorry about being late to the party. This thread has been a great read. I have wondered about this dealership myself because I heard all the stories too.
However, I highly doubt it's the same owner as the former Downtown BMW store. As many of us know. Mr. Hammer has alot better things to do with his time and money...such as operate his other 16 or so dealerships (Including Canbec BMW)
As for that exotic dealer who used to be on Parliament. Caliber still exist but are on The Queensway now and continue to sell exotic cars. I sold for him breifly. He is still there.
Thanks for the pics of the 6er. I'd love to own that car!
