Let me provide a portion of Gilbert's post:
"(I am a T-shirt and jeans, and sneakers guy. (also don't comb my hair...)"
To me, that is a slob when it comes time to do business. I do not think of myself as a yuppie (I am not young at 33, I don't live in an urban area, but I am a professional). That term conotes a certain arrogance which I don't have, instead, I have respect for the process and the salesperson's job. They are trying to make a living. They have a right to qualify ("judge") the seriousness of buyers. If it is true that BMW buyers are wide ranging in appearance then I expect the skilled salesperson to serve this wide range with enthusiasm. But, if the salesperson has experienced that people dressed like slobs are not serious buyers then so be it. This is capitalism. If you don't like the service, take your money and walk, complain to the manager or take other self-help measures. But please, stop griping about how dealers treat you as if you are personally offended. It's business, treat as such.
