not only pricing, but looks as well....a lot of high-end car buyers buy for looks and luxury, and not all of them put performance first.

Well those ppl are posers. If they actually wanted a drivers car, and not just some badge, then they would get a BMW. There only concerned with image.

Well there are are bunch of new cars coming out from BMW this year so maybe people are holding off. The new 1 series coupe and cabrio will make a lot of sales not to mention the e90, e92, e93 M3.

I was planning on purchasing a 135i this summer, but after I noticed that BMW has not made any effort in resolving the price difference between Canadian and US pricing, they can kiss my

And I encourage everyone to boycott BMW until they make an effort to compensate us Canadians for the unjustified price difference.

The most effective way we can pressure BMW to harmonize the prices is to hit them in their pocketbook.

I believe Benz is up, largely due to the new C. People realized that the new BMW's are ugly Ok ok, so just the 5 series.
I visited both BMW and Mercedes dealerships last Saturday in Markham, and surprisingly BMW was far busier, but their pricing is totally wacked, they had a 135i there, not a convertible, for $47k?? I have never agreed with the pricing of this car.

I'd rather take my $36K, and look at the new C class, (230 no charge Sport version) or the 2008 Cadillac CTS...Don't laugh I rented one of these for two days in San Francisco this week, and was blown away.

Pic's aren't mine, as my version was charcol gray, and had the black interior with carbon fibre trim(fake but nicer than wood)...but you get the idea.

I think we'll head south for our next BMW. BMW Canada can kiss my cause of how shit they treat Canadians ............. and don't even hide the fact. Rite in our faces and we still eat all that BMW shit up with a spoon. No thanks.

I agree with this. An ugly shape may seem cool when it first comes out but after a couple years its stale.. not good for business.

Mercs entire line up is still good looking.
