: My boss and I pull into the local BMW dealership in my y2k 323i, and ask if he can test drive a used M3 convertibe..."No. We don't let people test drive the M3's unless we have a serious commitment that they're going to buy one."

: WTF? How are you supposed to know if you want to buy the car if you've never driven one? I don't know if that's really their policy, or if my boss just looks way too young.

I walk into BMW dealership in nov. 1996, 23 yr old kid who looks 17 in sweat pants and hooded jacket. Greeted immeadiately and ask about new 328is, I am then OFFERED a test drive. Truth is that was the only dealer who took me seriously and he got a $37K sale. Find a new dealer who is "serious" about actually selling cars.
