yah. he will as soon as he is done. I ordered like every piece of trim for this guy's car and still waiting for some. of course, you know many would be backordered at BMW AG as well. this guy spends his money and it was his first BMW and has no intention of getting rid of it.
what you call "big coin" is nothing for other guys. there was a guy (no name of course) who sold his X6 because he couldn't get a winter tire package with the wheels he wanted but could get a new X6 with the wheels. so.....he bought a new X6 with the wheels he wanted for winter. and we got him tires for those wheels.
so, "big coin" is nothing for some guys.
then there was another guy last year who wait 3 1/2 months for a NEW engine for an E30 because he wanted it. $11,000.00 of course plus labour and tax, and additional parts .fortunately, he supplied his own exhaust.
there is a guy who bought a M5 for winter because he drives a Porsche in summer. He bought his parents an X5.
and to think about it too, when the owners of RIM just started up, they drove BMWs and played around with them like they were toys.
and even then "big coin" was nothing for them.
so all in all, it is not because it is an older car or who has it. If you can afford it and you can spend your money on it, no reason why you shouldn't.
so there are guys who are willing to spend their monies to have fun too.
