BMW is unbelievably misunderstood!

BMW has got to be one of the most misunderstood vehicle manufacturers of all time. I don't think I've ever noticed other vehicles to have the most confusion of their owners having no clue what they're selling. Anyone else noticing this too???

Check this ad out... It's been reposted 4 times in the last day and the owner keeps switching it's edition between Alpina and Autobahn Edition

If it disappears, try this.

While looking for an e36, I constantly see people listing it as a v6. I was even told this in person by a seller, that the engine was a v6.

The V6 engine, I see that all the time too lol.

I like the fact how he says the mileage doesn't go with the body but the engine... For that money, you can buy a 750i or a true sport 740i. I saw another complete junk basic e34 with an M badge on the trunk and the owner was selling it as an M5.

Every E36 on Kijiji is an "M3" or "M Package". And "genuine Alpina" wheels on Kijiji have 19 spokes instead of 20.

I also love it when they don't list if the car is auto or manual, and when you email or call them with the question, they answer "it has both"!
WTF??? Apparently lots of people think that an auto with paddle shifters is both a manual and an automatic!

Big time BMW shop's ad...The misinformation in EVERY ad is just
You would figure if its a business, it would be better...

"E46 232Ci power steering booster with reservoir"
